B3: Capturing: Various issues

Post by helmut »

Rectangle: Settings not disabled
When choosing "Rectangle" for capturing the setting "Client area" does not make sense. Setting "Client area" should be disabled. The same applies for "Include cursor".

English Labels
Currently, some English labels are not quite clear.

- Capture > Capture Area
The panel at the top is labelled "Capture". Instead it should be labelled "Screen Area" or "Area" or "Capture area".

- Save
The panel at the bottom is labelled "Save". Instead it should be labelled "Result" or "After capturing" or "Action".

- Include cursor > Include mouse cursor
"Include mouse cursor" would be clearer than just "Include cursor"


"Hide XnView" disabled
Currently, the setting "Hide XnView" is enabled when choosing "Desktop", in all other cases it's disabled. I see no reason why this setting should be disabled at all. Or did I oversee something?

All of the above have been resolved in 1.94 RC1. Thanks, Pierre! :-)

Some issue left:

In panel "Action" it says

Code: Select all

___Action________________________________

(o) Open in XnView

( ) Directory [                             ] 
    Format    [JPEG                         ]
"Directory" is not an action, instead it should be something like:

Code: Select all

___Action________________________________

(o) Open in XnView

( ) Save 
    Directory [                             ] 
    Format    [JPEG                         ]

"Action" is not 100% clear, perhaps the panel should be labelled "Action after capturing". (I'm striving for 100% clearliness and usability).
