    mac Skitch 2.0 - Mac

    Going back to Skitch 1.0.12 worked, thx again for making the installer available ! Q / hint / note: After going back to 10.0.12 ,my old skitch account in the sharing settings is now labeled "anonymous account" so I lost the old skitch.com login. Did the service of sketch.com get switch off with the release of 2.0 ? Or is there a way to re-acticate my old sketch.com account as well ? It's a (gladly) paid skitch plus "membership" purchased in jan 2011 . It was originally valid till 2012-01-06, then skitch.com sent a mail and extended it for 2 years after I was a very early adopter, so it should work till 2014-01-06... Then of course SKITCH was purchased by Evernote, so maybe the gift is no longer valid. I managed to get a login by just sharing an image and then being prompted for login and password for the skitch.com site. However it still looks like a recreated account and NOT the old one.... but as I'm not relying on storage in the skitch cloud I'm fine... jsut wondering
  2. apart from the return to a lot of SKITCH 1.x features I would like to have a command like eg cmd-alt-C in Preview to adjust image brightness contrast etc. it doesn't need to be as elaborate as in preview actually, but it wouldn't hurt... I find myself commenting a lot on screengrabs froom quicktimes / or fotos taken on location... sometime when commenting or when dragging to mail you realize its pretty dark / hard to see the detail you are interested in... right now I have to precess the image elsewhere, copy all the annotations paste them over the newly grabbed image... :-( a bit complicated !

    In all my rant about the "new" way SKITCH works and integrates with Evernote I was only focused on my personal User Experience... (how the UI has changed for the worse and the fact that it crashes frequently) but "Simple" is absolutely right. The way that big players buy useful / hip / cute / small startups or companies and the try to bend them to fit their idea is worrying. Sure this is the way business goes... but honestly, must it ? After I had discovered Skitch in november 2009 I was so thrilled by this tiny tool, that is so great and out of the way, yet always there when you need it. I tried to give usefull feedback and I bought skitch PLUS the day it became available... I was more than willing to pay for this wonderful tool and to try to give them some income so that Skitch could succeed ! I have recommended it a thousand times and everybody loved its simplicity ! I guess Evernote just liked the idea of a fancy capture plugin... hey skitch is cool, people like it, lets make this a clever way to feed infer into Evernote... and that is all that interests them. The Users don't own the software, Evernote do and they can change the software's intention from "usefull tool" to "badly executed Evernote plugin" ... all we can do ( ...and I can't as I never liked / purchased Evernote) is take away the business from a company that breaks workflows in this silly, shortsighted and not-user-respectig way... Indeed the point that "Simple" makes, this drives me even further away from using Evernote... J PS this is my last (5th) post here for today (silly limit) and unless SKITCH 1.1 or 3.0 surfaces and becomes more of what it was, there is no point in posting or reading here anymore....

    AND for me SKITCH 2.0 crashes frequently !!! I'm on the latest 10.7 (NOT 10.8) and run Photoshop and a load of other apps... on trying to grab screen grabs SKitch crashed 3 or 4 times now (within 2hrs or working) If any of the developers is reading this, get in tocu I'm happy let you have my crashreports if I get a Skitch 1.0 installer ;-) just kidding...

    - and you have to manually MINIMIZE the Skitch window - no more "moving itself out of the way" after dragging teh image onto e.g. mail ... - then of course when you WANT the Skitch windowback in the foreground and you comand-tab to SKITCH - guess what, it's MINIMIZED ... hahaha so now you have to move the mouse to the (now even fuller) Dock and have to click the minimized window to get it back ! Do you guys get paid by the click... ?? - and capture... why on earth do I need to click on CAPTURE now... ANOTHER CLICK - yes, you guys get paid by the click !! - and then I hoped for the fullscreenmode... I thought maybe I can leave skitch fullscreen, snap an area / image / website / ... but NO , failure again... I snap but SKitch doesn't come to the front... it remains in fullscreenmode / hidden... with the new screen grab waiting for me to swipe or CLICK to the skicth window or command-tab I guess oh je.... so many extra moves and clicks and hassle.... I think I can simplify ZIGs earlier post: Things that suck SKITCH 2.0 Things that don't suck SKITCH 1.0 I mean there were a few thing to improve on the old skitch as well... but NOW there is a lot more to improve on the new Skitch ! And somehow I fear that Skitch will eventually degrade to the mediocre screen capture part of Evernote.... Jo - SO DISAPPOINTED PS did I mention you added y huge amount of extra clicks ??? I guess I did...

    OH MY GOD SKITCH is broken... dead, gone... it's become another "application" instead of that genius little clever tool ! I'm VERY VERY VERY disappointed by this update. I was sooo thrilled to have found skitch early in it's days ! As soon as it became available I purchased the max of SKITCHplus option, I really wanted to give something to these guys so they can keep developing this GREAT GREAT GREAT tool... and as much as I understand that one sells their project (I wish I had one to do so... ), this result is a development in a very bad direction ! so many lost features / so inelegant and clumsy now.... - no easy scaling by changing the size of the window !! that was so nice with the % and the file size indicated right there !!!!! - together with the button for the 100% or scaled drag the above was perfect / intuitive ... easy, quick - and cropping - NOOO another "tool" that requires 3 extra clicks... why on earth did you give up the dragging of the edges... that WAS so brilliant, easy quick intuitive... now I have to 1) click the tool 2) in at least 50% of the cases or more I have to change from size to crop or vice versa (with that ugly chrombutton) 3) then find and click the the slider 4) then click "apply" ...what else, hiw about a f..king SAVE dialogue ??? before 1) click & drag on one side or corner to crop OR 1) click and drag bottom right to scale !!! THAT WAS GENIUS - NOW ITS PLAIN BAD !!! more missing things... - no more pipette or settable custom colors ??!!! - no more transparency in colors !!! (apart form that marker tool ) - before I could make ANYTHING transparent !!! - no more erase to easily delete parts of or split drawn lines or shapes !! - FTP Upload - arrg stuck with ONLY Evernote (thats not nice... ) - the flip history gone.... such a quick way back to the beforelast change / frame..... - share on my own server, copy link - done where is that ? LOL just as I have deleted all my notes from sketch / Evernote aka "slow history" pane they finally appear in the evernote window ... FAIL and what is this : "You can make 5 more posts today. This restriction is in place until 21 September 2012 - 04:54 PM" are you trying to avoid more than 5 complaints per day form one person ? seriously please provide me with a downloadable skitch 1 installer... latest version - PLEASE - PLEASE - PLEASE - PLEASE (I so hope I can fix this form my timemachine backup at home) the most disappointed JO ever
