I'm drawing a blank at the moment, but I remember using a translation app (Trados perhaps?) back around 2000/2001 that did this kind of diff harvesting. It only noted the changes, (no auto screenshot), but that was a good lead.

Our product (Dialogue) is very expansive with lots of menus, dialog boxes, etc in the GUI. We use unstructured FM 7.2. Every time we have a new release, undoubtedly some (or many) of the software's menus and dialog boxes change due to enhancements. This requires us to identify these changes (somehow) and re-do any screenshots in our documentation and training materials. Is anyone aware of a tool that can go through an application and harvest screenshots of all menus and dialog boxes? Then, would it be able to compare screenshots of the last version to indicate where changes have occurred on the GUI? Any suggestions or resources would be appreciated.

Period ... that's it.? Now, with that truth in mind, does it make sense to worry about the future -- or the past?? Isn't it reasonable to accept that if we take care of each moment as it comes, all of the following moments will take care of themselves??
