Screen Capture

These are just a couple tools I coded for use where I work. Details can be found in it's help file. To install, go to the Releases page and download and run the EXE file from the latest release. To update to a new version, uninstall the existing version first (all your settings will be saved).

If you have suggestions for new tools, or if you have any questions, let me know.

"Real" Editing Tools

Do not confuse this with the most excellent "Edit Tools" by wordsnSync. Also check out PerfectIt and the Editorium. If you're looking for macros instead of plugins, check out Paul Beverly's excellent book of macros.

Disclaimers

I can't guarantee that this code will work in your version of Visual Studio or Word. Microsoft does not make that sort of maintainability easy!

I'm just sharing this because a couple people asked for the code. If you find it useful, great!

If you just want to see the algorithms, then you'll be most interested in the files Ribbon1.cs (which contains the code that runs when you click a ribbon button and describes the overall algorithms) and TextHelpers.cs (which contains all the little helper functions that make writing the algorithms easier).

Good luck!
