HyperSnap 8 Beta Tests finished, v8 fully released

HyperSnap v8 was fully released on Sept. 22, 2014, the beta test program is now closed
 
(Old message below)
We're ready to start beta-testing the next major release of HyperSnap, version 8. This version will be a free upgrade to the users who purchased version 7 within 1 year from the release date of version 8. Users of older versions of HyperSnap, or version 7 purchased before the cut-off date, can upgrade at our online store for $19.50. You may check for which versions of HyperSnap your license is valid with the "Check License" link on the left hand menu of our web site.
 
Please note that version 8 of HyperSnap is compatible with Windows Vista and newer versions of Windows (7, 8, 8.1, future version 9 etc.) It does not work under Windows XP or older. If you need to use HyperSnap under XP, please download version 7. You may download a beta test version of Windows 8 to try it yourself, and notify us of any bugs you find, from the following links:
 
Current version: HyperSnap 8 full release
64-bit version: http://www.hyperionics.com/downloads/HS8Setup.exe (recommended)
32-bit version: http://www.hyperionics.com/downloads/HS8Setup32.exe (use on 32-bit Windows)
 
If you download the beta, please subscribe to this forum to be notified of newer beta releases.

Here is a list of changes and new features in HyperSnap 8:

  • 64-bit version, allowing the use of the full potential of modern 64-bit computers. Capture and edit much bigger images, fit in memory more captures simultaneously opened in HyperSnap window for editing and processing. A 32-bit version is also available for use on 32-bit systems.
  • Thumbnails list - select all or several of captured images and right-click - Save Selected - Each image to its own file: now prompts you for the folder and image format to save in, instead of as in v.7 automatically saving to the last used folder and file.
  • Thumbnails list - select all or several of captured images and right-click: added new function "Email selected", which will attach multiple images in selected file format to an empty email message.
  • The order of thumbnails in the thumbnail bar may now be re-arranged with drag and drop operation. This is important e.g. if you want to save some or all of images into one PDF file, and the order in which they are saved is important.
  • You may now drag out one image thumb, or several of them if marked with check-marks, to Windows desktop or Explorer folders. Upon dropping the thumbnails there, the images will be saved in that folder as PNG or JPEG files. You may also drag-drop them to other targets that accept files, e.g. MS Word, email, web file upload forms etc.
  • Wider lines when drawing shapes possible - under the "Line Style" tool, click "Wider Lines" menu item and type the new width in pixels.More "skins" under Setup ribbon tab - "Skin" button, including Office 2013 themesOther possible enhancements will be added to version 8, depending on your feedback.
The next message in this thread contains detailed change log for each beta release.

    Mark,
    which web page? The "thank you for installing HyperSnap"? Just looking at it, does not mention any version number... Or do you mean a different page? Which?

    Hello Roger,
    Version 8 uses some system features that are not available on XP, but only from Vista up. I'm not planning to upgrade v7 past v8 release, unless some major bugs are discovered in v7 and need to be fixed.

    question
    some options of hypersnap are not contained in the INI files that I use.
    I guess they are in the registry (Setup-forward and backward arrows, the rotate tools, the items that sit on the very top line)
     
    you have to hit EXIT to get those settings to hold.
    CAN I COPY THE REGISTRY from my main windows 7 machine, with hyersnap 8 on it, to another notebook machine, with hypersnap 8 on it so that I can set up one machine and keep those settings on the other?
    if so, which registry keys?

    To have an ini file fully applied to the registry, it's best to first completely exit any running instance of HyperSnap, then use it with command line switch:
     
    HprSnap8.exe -readopts [path\]HprSnap8.ini
     
    This reads all the options from the ini file (named HprSnap8.ini above, but can be any file name) and saves them to the registry. That's all it does, HyperSnap does not start with this command. Upon next normal start HyperSnap will read all new settings from the registry.
     
    If you save .ini file from version 7, you could edit it with Notepad and change <HyperSnap7> and </HyperSnap7> nodes to <HyperSnap8> and </HyperSnap8>, then try to read them as described above with version 8 software. It will only read these options, that are still compatible with the new code, so some settings may not transfer.
