Unfortunately, you're right, it will be fixed in next releases.

Thanks!

Just ran into this same issue today tongue (I'm running 3 monitors), and it's the first time I tried to capture an image using the top-window shortcut where the active window was on another monitor.

Any guesses as to when that next release will be ready?

Cheers!

Ah, it's hard to predict... There're many tasks to be done in the pipeline. Possibly week.

Well, finally it's happened smile
Multi-monitor mode is now supported starting from 1.1.3 version.

Any comments and suggestions are appreciated.

Okay . . . it works thumb_up, but not quite the way that I hoped it would.

screenshot

I run three displays (see screenshot), and notice that SS only took an image from displays 1 and 2, but not 3.  The editing feature also only functions on those same two displays.  With two video cards in non-SLI mode, I can run up to four displays . . . but my motherboard has three PCIe slots, so theoretically I guess I could run up to six displays with simple (albeit expensive) off-the-shelf parts.

I guess I was expecting that you could optionally capture: (1) just the active window; or (2) just a single display; or (3) all displays at once as a single image.  And for a consistent UI, I think editing mode should involve all displays at the same time, always.

Not sure how you'd want to capture from a single display . . . maybe support hot keys for up to four monitors? or maybe just capture everything and have a quick select feature? or some other idea?

By quick select, I mean the way editing mode now allows you to choose a window.  Just provide a mechanism where I can select what's on one display (it's a simple thing to crop from that point).  I'm leaning toward this as my method of choice.

Don't want to sound negative 'cause I do think the improvements are great. biggrin

Anyone else?

Cheers!

Yeah, you've exposed me: I've got only two monitors currently and I couldn't test it with more ones..
Needed to do that testing by all means.

Developing GUI for this feature was also an on-pipe task, thank you for your suggestions smile To be honest, I expected these remarks.

BTW, you used imageshack service for image uploading, did you know you could upload screenshots directly from  Screenshot Studio?

Uh, I guess I did know about it, I just wasn't thinking.  I tried it once under 1.1.2, but it wasn't handling multi-monitor very well and it ended up crashing.  That was my one experience with trying to upload an image . . . I never got a link or anything, so the image just disappeared into the ether.

Is there any way I can find images that I've posted and lost or forgotten about?  Can I delete images that I've uploaded?

Hello, i'm testing version 1.1.3 and it simply fails to capture anything on the secondary monitor.
Is this due the software being in trial?

Hi, no. This is due to something wrong with your configuration... sad

It seems multi monitor capture is still not working right? I'm trying out v.1.9.82, but I cannot get it to capture more than my primary monitor. Neither through 'capture whole screen' nor through 'capture region'

Testing on a dual monitor Win7 64bit setup.
