  • Crop and Resize.
  • Remove frames that you don't want.

What's new in ScreenToGif v2.14:

  • You can now set up to avoid receiving a confirmation message before closing the app via the tray icon.
  • Added the ability to get updates for the translations.
  • The color picker hexadecimal field now supports pasting/typing without specifying the alpha/transparency value.
  • You can now review your feedback before sending it to the developer.
  • It's now possible to personalize the size of the mouse clicks highlight. Also, you can apply it even after the recording.
  • You can now let the app start minimized to the system tray.
  • You can now create some tasks to be executed after each recording. (More to come)
  • Troubleshooter: If any window is missing (outside of the screen bounds), you can use the troubleshooter to reset its current or startup position.
  • Added the option to disable hardware acceleration.
  • Now the app warns when trying to open a project that is already opened in another editor instance. Also, the task that clears the temporary folder will not delete any project that is open.

Bug fixes:

  • The code that positions the recorders was improved.
  • Two buttons were being displayed at the KeyStrokes editor, one got removed.
  • The progress indicator value (for the percentage, without showing the total) was wrong.
  • If you tried to apply a caption with just spaces, the app would crash. Now a warning appears, explaining that you need to type something.
  • Improved the "FFMpeg/Gifski is not present" warning.
  • When clicking to save the project as multiple images, without zipping and pressing 'No' right after a prompt appeared, the Save/Cancel buttons of the panel would be disabled.
  • The framerate of the encoder 2.0 could be wrong by an offset of 9ms.
  • When importing a translation, the 'new lines' were not being correctly identified.
  • When using relative paths such as '.' for the temporary folder, an error would appear.
  • When trying to crop, the app could crash (because of a high DPI issue).
  • When selecting a screen region (using the new recorder UI), the app could crash (also a high DPI issue).
  • The slide transition was getting the amount of frames from a wrong slider (this caused a crash when undoing the transition).
  • When entering snapshot mode with the recorder UI, without having any region selected and pressing "Record", the app would crash. Now it prompts for a region of the screen to be selected.
  • Editing the key strokes of the last frame was not possible. The key input was being ignored.
  • When a screen gets disconnected, all Editor windows will be moved to an available screen.
  • When cancelling the selection of the compression method used by the system encoder (video export), the app would crash.
  • When using the 'Remove duplicates' feature, the option to conserve the total delay of the removed frames was not working when selecting the option to remove the first duplicate frame.
  • When using the 'Remove duplicates' feature, trying to undo the previous action that had no frames to be removed, a crash would happen.
  • Pressing 'Stop' when a the pre-starter countdown is still active was not really stopping it.

Known Bugs:

  • Using an automated task to add the key strokes will still use the color and font settings from the main settings.

Changes in v2.14.1:

  • Updated the Spanish (Argentinian) translation.
  • Fixed - For some users, the app would simply close when stopping the recording and opening the Editor.
