  1. Any chance you could add the iterator value as a Variable so we can define the entire file name ex: File-Name-$i or something.

  3. can you add retina menubar icon please? love this app thank you!

  4. Any chance you could have option in preference to 1. no dialog box to confirm when you click the discard button instead close the window 2. when you click save, it should auto save to the path you have chosen in preference and close the window.

  5. The only feature this is missing is copying to the clipboard. Such a pain in the ass to drag and drop my screenshot from the desktop into an email/messenger/word/etc etc. Once a screenshot is taken I should be able to just paste it Cmd+V like the snipping tool does on windows.

    Also, disabling the preview would be nice. Tired of closing it every time.

  6. +1 please automatic copy to clipboard after capture, it's essential or at least desirable as an option in preferences, eliminating need to "Edit in Preview" and CMD+C :)

    Also programmable shortcuts to save time would be a huge benefit.

    I understand now the Discard message, since captures are automatically saved this is a way to delete the file there after.
    When pressing ESC it closes the preview nicely, perhaps automatic saving could be a preference setting.

    Many thanks for releasing it FREE!

  7. Add another +1 for autocopy to the clipboard. Captur is by far the best screenshot utility I've found for OS X, so thank you for keeping it free!

  8. I absolutely love this tool. However, I upgraded to macOS Sierra today and the selection and window options stopped working. I hope that you are planning an update soon!

  9. Yep, I ran into the same thing - as soon as I updated to Sierra, this utility broke. Bummer, it was really handy for the testing work that I do. Hope to see an update soon.

  10. Yep, broken in Sierra. Update soon?

  11. Captur 2.4 works in Sierra - a workaround until Captur 3.0 is fixed.

  12. Hi there. Love this tool - simple and just works. However, I think a key feature was lost in the latest update. Prior to 3.2, whenever I did a Captur it would automatically be in the clipboard ready for pasting regardless if I saved it or not. Which is critical for 2 reasons: 1) I don't want a permanent copy of most of my capturs and 2) I don't have to save it and/or open it in another app just to get a copy into my clipboard...

  13. Hello, I love this tool.

    Could you add Hotkeys for next release?

    Thank you.

  14. Hello, the manual entry for a file name don´t work. The name is always CapturFiles....

    Thanks for help.


  15. Thanks for your SW another +1 for "> disabling the preview would be nice." - Tired of closing it every time.

  16. Great idea, thanks a lot!
    +1 for copy to clipboard

  17. Hi! Thank you for this app, it's great!

    Another +1 for automatic copy to clipboard, please. I've since downgraded for 2.4 because I did not want to give up this feature.

    Thank you!

  18. another +1 for auto copy to clipboard!

  19. Download links are all dead, except for 2.3

  20. Would like to see the latest version back online again. Would love to update.

  21. Hey great tool thanks for developing this. When I click on your download link for the latest version I get a dropbox error - file not found error!

  22. Download links are not working.

  23. Hi. I have used your app for years but it seems the link for the latest version is broken. DropBox says "File not found". Happy to send $5 CAD compensation via paypal if that would help.

  24. For now, here is a mirror link on softpedia:

  25. Keyboard shortcuts please! I love it so far.

  26. I'd like to have my screen caps prefixed with “Img_”, via the preferences.
    But it does not work.
    Whichever prefix I try, all files are systematically named CapturFiles_⋯ (under OS X 10.11.6).

    Apart from this little bug, it's a nice app.

  27. Why iMac Macbook production before Maverick Osx no internet recovery
    This an answer

  28. This is a great app, Thanks a lot.
    I have a few suggestions (based on version 3.2)
    1. Option to disable preview
    2. Keyboard shortcuts for screen capture (one for each method Fullscreen, Active window etc)

  29. Hi , very good article.

    thanks for sharing, keep up the good






  30. Great app, but there is room to make it even better:

    - Focus preview window after taking the screenshot (now it requires to be focused everytime manually - also for closing with Esc)
    - Allow copy to clipboard by pressing cmd+c (now it requires to be opened in Preview and copy from there)

  31. I love capturing 2.4 which I've used for close to 5 years. I tried the new version which looks snazzier but deinstalled it when I realised 1) it doesn't copy the screenshot automatically to the clipboard 2) the interim window doesn't disappear automatically. It generates more clics and does fewer things. It would be much better to spruce up 2.4 in my eyes.

    1. I meant "captur" another trick of the àé"!ràéç"!rà! keyboard corrector.

  32. Thanks for this post, It will help me lot.
