Nice. Certainly an improvement on tools like SysExporter and GetWindowText that just grab dialog boxes. I will definitely be using this to rip out text from static system tools. I do a fair amount of that for HOWTOs and bug reports.

Edit:

Here it is being used on the site to help grab areas of text without doing an "edit" function. Yeah this is a keeper.

It doesn’t work on everything, but I’ve had luck with several programs that had some kind of copy restriction. As a result, it’s an unreliable but necessary tool for software testing and documentation.

It's at the top of my programs to add to the database.

Wishlist

Since the program pays attention to segments and separations, the program will occasionally only grab one or two words. I hope future versions work in a way that will grab multiple sections’ text at one time.

After getting saved by his program REPEATEDLY this week, I had to add it to the database. It's only fair.
