I tried screenpresso and its actually really nice, I decided that I will try snagit, anything on alternativeto.net that recommends similar items (shutter shot, faststone capture)
Ran all the tests, techsmith snagit has the best image editing (masks) & the best capturing features (Scroll captures are superior) with a higher learning curve, shareX has the lightest UI / fastest to edit / low resource usage, screenpresso is a hybrid of both (low learning curve), march 29th 2017
Thanks for your detailed reply/replies. I don’t find them weird, as you suggested they would be In fact, many of your posts are really valuable. Just today I reread some of your setup posts.
Every share option you see in Snagit is, essentially, a plugin driving that option. So adding the imgur plugin does basically the same thing.
You can easily make presets and assign them hotkeys. Tip: even when you do not want to preview an image in the editor, the editor will open up until you disable “leave editor running in the background”.
I always have 3 presets: print screen (just to clipboard for pasting), ctrl print screen (open in editor), alt print screen (save to file).
I always try to post whats in my head every few days somewhere, and it helps that its on a forum (and not on a wordpress blog , etc).
also I wrote out what my colorschemas are for notes as well (since I just finished writing this up too). CTRL+SHIFT+1,5,6 are all mapped to hotkeys “@! , @? , @zz” respectively, and activates the hotkeys. I picked. @zz stands for waiting on because I’m getting tired of waiting on someone else (ZZZZ sleeping), @! is something important to do or ongoing task, @? means I have a question with no answer and I need to go find one before assigning a physical task (its a research task basically). I have all of those colors in a search parameter that I occasionally look through and used the unique URL string into tabsnooze for chrome (global search on all my notes in document)
Last time I used it was like 3 years ago, and they massively made lots of great changes to the platform.
I didn’t give snagit enough time though, I only tried it out for 30 minutes (all I did was press a bunch of buttons at random basically). All software tends to behave the same on a UX level, and if you know how to use Adobe Illustrator + sharex, snagit should be fairly intuitive, but I realize that snagit has a higher learning curve
At some point in this thread you commented about keeping track of open tabs and so on.
It’s been a big problem for me as well. Clogging up the system and so on. Not to mention, some accidental closes or crashes that lost me an s-load of open tabs with open tasks.
Especially when I search/research a lot, I use many tabs.
You mentioned a few tab management tools. I don’t think you mentioned Tabs Outliner. I have tried several, and I have found this to be far beyond anything else.
It’s like a swiss knife that can do many things (hence, a little bit of a learning curve at first) - but now can’t think of not using it.
It is so easy to have a large hierarchy open, then close it when you leave it, and bring it out again whenever.
Also, the tool can be used not only for “archiving” but also as a replacement for your general bookmark manager if you want. As in, keeping lists of tabs you use regularly.
Anyway, just throwing it in there since I can see you love tools for every part of your workflow.
I have tried this, this application originally stemmed from Firefox’s vertical tree tabs. Chrome never implemented anything like this, I also did spend a lot of time researching this tool in the past, since it was really the only thing chrome had going for it.
I ended up scrapping it since I need valuable real estate on my screen, and this was just another thing I have to look at.
What your describing is basically an approach to WATERFALL PROJECT MANAGEMENT vs. AGILE PROJECT MANAGEMENT
I tend to be really freeflow with my tabs, I drag things around, order them, tab bookmarks at random , close and open, etc. I log important bookmarks in my daily bullet journal instead in dynalist if I’m researching something I don’t know, this style is more AGILE PROJECT MANAGEMENT
I will give this a shot, but I really like my chrome bookmark since i can see it all the time.
That’s a similar link, there’s current 2 types of those sliding front cam:
The one you linked there is a magnetic based metal one, which I have not tried
the one I use is a hard plastic sliding door like action:
I did alot of research, the magnetic ones you reference potentially fall off. The hard plastic ones I use do not. I suggest using the ones i linked here, those are verbatim what I ordered ( 3pack). The cam does occassionally slide as I pull my pocket out, but that is expected.
i was going to do this later, just not now, for a sample template of what my entire one document flow is (with sample and dummy data, maybe like 25% of my nonsensitive data) and then maybe make a youtube video explanation out of it
There you go, I thought you were much more of a fixed structure afficionado . Maybe I got that impression from your talk about making SOPs for everything you do.
Maybe you will be a client for the new Opera Neon browser concept - where everything is much more fluid. (Haven’t tried myself though).
I agree that it can be a bit heavy if having to manage all of it.
A lot of the “fly by” stuff doesn’t need to go into that tree. (Although it is not too hard to clean up or spread out - since subtrees can moved out with drag-drop or copy/cut-pase.).
Your “daily bullet journal” can take a lot of the fly-by stuff of course. Or so it sounds. I am curious how you are using that concept?
