Tutorial - print-screens of Shutter preferences window

Asked by nomnex on 2010-09-27

This is a no-brainer tutorial for those who need to take print-screens of the Shutter preferences window.

v. 0.86.4

Expand the Shutter windows (it must be larger than the preferences windows)
Set the delay to ~5s (+/- if you are slow or fast)
Select > Window > Session - Shutter
M* + p to open the preferences windows
C + e to crop the print screen

M = Meta key (Alt)

Question a: is there another method?
Question b: where posting small tips about shutter (the blog)?

a1) Use the tray icon to capture the preferences window (click on window).
a2) Open a new instance of Shutter (this will not work with Shutter 0.87 anymore)

b) Yes, we could open a new help topic for this. User could use a separate contact form to submit tips. What do you think?

a1) is indeed a better method.
a2) I never though opening multiples instance of shutter.

b) That would be a good idea. The application is easy to use. But I usually remove the app icons from the panel applet and I was somewhat struggling trying to take the print-screens from the main GUI. Your tip in A1 would have helped.
