All the same...OldBar default style

by Steno 21. agosto 2012 18:54

OldBar 1.2.2 is available here. I've finally managed to add the "Set as default style" feature, requested by many users. You can now define a button style, so that it will be applied to every button added. Hope it works as expected...

Ok, capture, but stay invisible...

by Steno 5. marzo 2012 19:11

As asked by many user, I've added a new capture mode that allows users to retrieve "alpha channel" info of windows with transparency elements (borders, shadows, glass panels). It's quite a workaround and a bit rude, but for the most part it works as expected: to recover alpha I simply take two screenshots of the window, one with a black bakground, the other with a white one. This approach is more or less the same illustrated by Ian Griffiths in his blog (thank you for the idea and the explanation...). This mode must be enabled in settings, otherwise Snappy will continue to use default capture mode.

That said, in this new version I'va also added useful features (well, at least for me...):

  • Open with external app
  • Selection tool in screenshot editor (currently only rectangle selection, but list will grow...)
  • Add images from file system
  • Cut/paste screenshot selection
Many bugs were fixed, but others have probably been added, so feedback are more than welcome...

Good captures everyone!

It's finally hiding itself...OldBar 1.2.0

by Steno 9. febbraio 2012 18:44

Thanks to Davit T., I've fixed a tedious bug on OldBar autohide function, which was preventing the bar to hide itself when focus was gained (the hell knows if I've used right tenses...). While I was on that, I've also added a basic theme support.

You can find the new version here. Feedbacks are more than welcome!
