First beta for next major version of HyperSnap is available for download and testing. 64-bit version of HyperSnap 8 is now available, more themes have been added, including office 2013 (with white, gray and dark gray colors) available for select under the Skin in Setup. You can select all the captured images under Thumbnails list, right click and email them (for this function to work, you should have a desktop email client installed, like Thunderbird, or Outlook, etc.).
Other changes and new features:
1. TextSnap technology, which lets you capture text from images or dialogs displayed on the screen is no longer supported for software written with accelerated graphics such as DirectX , DirectWrite, with newer programming languages and environments like Java, .NET, Windows 8 and newer, but it will continue to work for older programs.
2. Wider lines when drawing shapes is now possible in this version, to find it, click on Edit > Line > Line Style, and select ‘Wider lines..’ and enter the line width in the pixels.
Do you know this? TechSmith has removed the text capture profile from Snagit 12.
This beta expires on October 31, 2014. Other enhancements will be added based on user feedback.
Note: If you’re already using Screen Capturing program like Snagit on your computer, then it is better go for portable installation, i.e, install it on your USB drive.
HyperSnap 8 is compatible with Windows Vista/7/8 and above, but doesn’t work on Windows XP, (version 7 still works).
