I'm glad to see that Mr Mizukami answers to comments here, as I didn't had any from his website.
I'm also posting in the troubleshooting section here about not being able to stock more than one jpeg or png while using SnapNDrag...

My comment is about the Autorecord button with which I had to fight the first days of use.
There is a contradiction between what the Help page says and the actual use of the app.
Help page says : red circle = autorecord on;
Actually : red circle = autorecord off.
The plain red circle and the one with the white bar are not intuitive nor in accord with international signage conventions (maybe it's different in Japan? I know that white, not black, is associated with bereavement in this country). Both suggest something like stop, don't go here, etc. If I'm not mistaken, the red circle with the white bar is a road sign used in Europe.
Autorecord on should be represented by a simple green circle (green = positive) and Autorecord off by a simple red circle or a even an "X". It would be immediately understood by new users.
Just before I reported my problem about the jpeg/png recording to the developer I tested one more time the button, just to be sure again...
But it is a great app. As a translator (excuse my english by the way) I can record elements of my researches (definitions in English, French translations, pictures of obscure devices, examples of phrases, etc.), and save them to copy later in my FileMaker terminology files. That's something!

SerOctet had trouble on 09 Jan 2012
[Solution below in this text]
My problem is that I can't stock more than 1 jpeg or png using SnapNDrag, or record more than 2 (the current pasteboard will be erased with a new one). I have tried different things like autorecord off/stock PB button or just autorecord on. I noticed on Youtube windows of PR showing several green icons (that indicate pictures) in the left column; so it is possible, but the videos didn't show how they were recorded: I'm I doing something wrong? Is it SnapNDrag fault?
One way to stock more than one picture for me is to use the OS screen capture function, but they are not added automatically in Pasteboard Recorder (the icons representing them are grey although they are the same format -png- as with SnapNDrag)

SOLUTION !!! SOLUTION !!! : as I was checking the app preferences to mention the "number to maintain" in this post , I saw that "Ignore same text item to record" was checked -please notice the word "text" here- so I unchecked it and tested : well, I can now record more than one picture with SnapNDrag! I probably checked this item myself, I don't remember, but it makes sense if you don't want to have 2 identical clippings.
How could I have known that "text" could refer to the file's name? That it would apply to pictures, dammit? (By the way, SnapNDrag names its clippings "Capture_01", "Capture_02", etc.)

BUT : How come I could record more than 2 screens captures, their file's names also all start with "Capture d'écran 2012..." (French OS)?

I'm leaving this comment here. Hope it will be of some help.
Again : dammit! or tabarnac!

Please see my complaint in the Reviews/Comments section about that non-intuitive AutoRec button, and some positive comments on this great app.
