Double-layered active window capture

Description

Windows 7, 64-bit, Greenshot 1.1.5 Build 2643 (64 bit)

I took captures of the active window, and let Greenshot import them into Word 2010. The result of some dialog boxes shows like if there are layered, offset and transparent copies of the same window. It's only the outside of the dialog box, the text in the middle is fine (see attachment).
Thank you for the attention.

Hi,

Thanks for reporting this, that really makes the captures unusable!
Looks like the capture was taken before the screen updates were finished.
Greenshot does some magic to capture windows without having the aero effect ruining your capture with something that is in the background, it might be that your PC was not responding quickly enough. Maybe Greenshot needs to wait a bit longer, I need to check if I have a work-around for this.

Were the dialog boxes in the "middle" of the screen? (Not outside the visible screen)

To what is your window capture mode set, Auto?

Best wishes,
Robin

Hi Robin,

Not totally unusable, but a bit confusing indeed.

The dialog boxes were around the center of the scree, a bit offset to the
right.

Yes, I think you're talking about the setup in Preferences > Capture >
Active window capture, window capture mode (Aero style) is set to Automatic.

Thank you for the responsiveness !!!
