[Solved] Record Mouse Clicks

Post by djmlewis »

I am using record mouse clicks on JPG file to use to map clicks on an HTML page later.
The Manual states that 3 coordinates will be given: X, Y top, Y bottom.
However with GC 10 and 11.1 only 2 coordinates are copied to the clipboard:
For GC10 it is always X and Y from bottom
In GC 11.1 it is X and Y from bottom if "Zero is at bottom left" is NOT selected, and X and Y from top if "Zero is at bottom left" IS selected -- which is highly counterintuitive!
Somehow the middle coordinate seems to be missing which is Y from top (in GC10 and GC11 with zero at top left)

Please can you advise - I have pasted the copied coordinates into a text editor and excel, but still only 2 coordinates per line appear.

I can workaround by setting the option in GC11.1 so I get the Y top in the second coordinate but its pretty confusing.

the copy command copies only two values for each line (x and y) due the many requests.

I enhanced now the zero point selection.

I forward this to the manual writer. So, he will correct the manual.
