Hi, i suggest to have manage to set default folder, since i have trouble when capturing, i'm always save in home folder which is difficult to manage.

Useful, rather than take a whole screen then cut off

In the save dialogue, the path is highlighted but it is not in fact preselected - one cannot just start typing to set the filename. This little irritation mounts when one uses the tool multiple times a day. But *does the developer in fact read these comments*? There has been no reply, so far as I can tell, to any of them.

For some reason - I am unsure what; I don't think the applet has been updated - this problem seems to have disappeared. Good-o!

Screenshot@Tech71 only captures desktop in Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon 64 bit. Will not capture anything else in the rectangle.

This is a useful applet, for which I am grateful. Here is a report of a small problem, though perhaps the problem owes to Cinnamon rather than to the applet. Sometimes - it is intermittent - the applet does not scale properly. Screenshot at: I have Cinnamon set to scale panel text and icons (I mean: there is a GUI setting for that, and I have that setting enabled.) My system: Mint 18.3, Cinnamon 3.6.7, applet version 2017-102-12; hi-DPI enabled; screen resolution 2560x1440.

It would be fantastic if I could assign a keyboard combination for each of the screenshot options

This applet is just a wrapper on the gnome-screenshot tool. See man page or even source code of this applet (it is very easy), which commands use to make a screenshot. Example: gnome-screenshot -w - make screenshot of current window gnome-screenshot -a - make screenshot of selected area Now, you can bind this commands to your own shortcuts :)

This is a very useful extension, but I wish it had a way of setting a custom default location to save the screenshots to.

1 and 3 seconds delays are useless. How about a 10 seconds delay? Thanks.

OK, never mind. I got it. Delay 5 seconds. I'm an idiot.

I wish I could take a screen shot with a drop-down menu in Firefox visible. Maybe a hot key to make selection? Just sayin.
