How to view the main window after taking a screenshot (present main window after taking screenshot disabled)

Asked by Bruno on 2013-07-29


First of all, congratulations for Shutter, it has many features and options that I missed in similar programs, and it perfectly fit my needs.

I'm using Shutter to take several screenshots in a row, so I disabled the presentation of the main window after each screenshot (great feature!), because it became annoying.

However, sometimes I need to open the main window and rename the last screenshots I took. The problem is that I could not find an option to open the main window from the system tray menu (autohide main window when taking a screenshot is enabled). There is any way to do this? I'm using Ubuntu 13.04 with Unity interface.

I found a workaround, by trying to re-launch the program, what reopens the main window. It would be great to have this option in the system tray menu, though.
