Let the program start
with Windows: You find this option in the "Setup" window.
(How to get the "Setup" window read: "Use Do not show this dialog
Use "Auto Click":
If you have to take a lot of screen-shots and want the program to
handle them exactly the same way, you need not click on the same
buttons for every ScreenShot. Wherever you find an "Auto Click"
checkbox next to a button, the program will click on the button for you
when changing to the next wizard step. This is a great thing for
example when you want all your ScreenShots have saved or printed.
Combine "Auto Click"
& "Do not show this dialog anymore": If you want
the program always do exactly the same things you can select the "Auto
Click" and the "Do not show this dialog anymore" checkboxes of a
wizard-step at the same time. The step will now not be displayed but
the program executes the function next to the "Auto Click" checkbox.
With combination it is for example possible to take a serie of pictures
and save them automatically on disk, or let an unexperienced user print
what he sees on the screen without getting involved with cut &
paste or printer selection functions.
Use "Include mousecursor
on pictures": Great function to display the current mouse
cursor on the ScreenShot.
