Hi, so I have set-up a shortcut to open the rectangular region screenshot mode and when I use that shortcut and take a screenshot, it saves it. Now I don't want it to save the image but instead copy it. What can I do?
In general configuration tab you set it like this
It is set to this option already
Then you are set. Once you Ctrl+V in an editing image program, or office document, that copied image will be pasted. Or you can paste it in Dolphin or for example here in the forum.
No, I am saying that using the keyboard shortcut and not opening the app for screenshots, using the keyboard app, it saves it to the disk instead of copying
The Sectacle window needs to be opened even tho you use the shortcut for rectangular region in order to be copied to clipboard, otherwise will directly save it.
That's what I don't want. I want it to save to the clipboard but not be opened. Any solutions?
Ask KDE Plasma developers to change that behavior. For now is like this:
- with the window opened and dealing with different types of screenshots from it you can save, copy or edit in another application
- with the window opened, you can use shortcuts and will directly copy it to clipboard
- with the window closed, using shortcuts it will always save the screenshot to default location
Probably you would prefer something like
Is there anyway to set a keyboard shortcut for flameshot? I really really loved it
It used to be possible to add a custom shortcut to this command
/usr/bin/flameshot gui in System Settings > Shortcuts
Never used it as my flameshot is a click away in the panel.
I already answer this question once I think..
I'm not on my computer right now..
Check spectacle help.. there is command option to don't open spectacle and just copy to clipboard
What shortcut did you create?
Hey, that's awesome and it seems was one of few topics i didn't read. Still many things to read on the forum

I think '
spectacle -b -c' does it - I'm going to assign that to a 'square' mouse gesture as we speak
Update - perfect, can paste into GIMP and no image saved.
In his case it would be -brc for the rectangular region like as in my previous answer
Spectacle it's a pretty good screenshot tool.. just missing a simple way to draw/write annotations on the screenshot
