Capture function

#1

Can a simple capture function be added to Sumatrapdf?

That ability is provided by windows system. Select text and paste into notepad (or save all to text) select graphic and post into paint, select page(s) and do either (note windows clipboard and paint only allows one graphic page at a time) for more elaborate area selection use CTRL left click to start then release ctrl. Similar captures are provided by windows snipping tool etc. 3rd party apps (your choice) provide OCR snipping.

Win10 1809 onwards has a ‘cloud’ clipboard with history that some people might like to turn on.

Thanks for the heads up, however initial testing with old paint and new paint 3D suggest that statement still stands only one image page at a time via clipboard, unless multiple windows open in a wide screen grab :slight_smile:

Yes, only the new clipboard supports multiple items but Paint hasn’t changed in this regard. I don’t think it would be wise either on pasting to automatically create multiple image pages in Paint corresponding to all the images currently in the clipboard. :slight_smile:
