Version 1.12:

- fix for different treatment of newline by 'read' cmd in Bash-4.4 (thanks to peebee & 01micko)
- fix for newer ffmpeg that does not recognize '+nomouse' option anymore
- can make use of xrectsel, if available
- ditched xmessage; everything's done in Gtkdialog now
- minor corrections/fixes

First post updated!

Greetings!

Version 1.13:

- removed 'Add datestamp' and 'Add timestamp' checkboxes; instead a user can freely insert date's % parameters into filename, e.g. Screenshot_%Y-%m-%d will become Screenshot_2016-10-19
- fix: some ancient versions of ffmpeg may not support '-draw_mouse' option
- minor corrections

First post updated!

Greetings!

Hey Musher0

Well, I liked them, too, but they weren't flexible enough.
Now you can freely move the date/time around the core filename, date format is no longer hardcoded to YYYY-MM-DD, some users also may prefer 12h time format with AM/PM, and so on...
Oh, and the GUI is now less cluttered and looks clearer IMHO.

To regain practically the entire functionality of date/timestamp checkboxes it's merely a matter of appending %F (for date) and/or %T (for time).
Using the 'Info' button next to the filename you can preview how the actual, output filename's gonna look like.

Anyway, hope this change is not a deal-breaker for you. Wink

Hello SFR.

No, of course it's not a deal-breaker: your TAS is still the most versatile
screenshot utility around! Just my basic laziness I guess... Wink

Dear SFR,

Thanks. TAS works very nicely and is coded very economically. What a joy.Smile

With kind regards,

Just had a discussion with my wife about the "clipping tool" (EDIT : actually "snipping tool") that she uses on her school Windows PC - it gives her a method to select a part of the screen so she can attach it to an email (to her students or their parents) but she says she has to start it from the menu (which initially seemed much more longwinded than using the PRTSC button as I do to start TAS) but what she likes is that she can select a non-rectangular portion of the screen (she can clip a circular region).

Hmmm, I can do something similar by hitting PRTSC, then "edit", then selecting a rectangle, then "shift, ctrl, x" ing it to save the bit I want, then I can draw a couloured circle around the most important bit - but then I thought maybe TAS could also offer a different option other than "view, edit, continue, exit" - maybe there is a way to offer "select region" or "clip image" or something similar?? (without having to go into mtpaint).

Does anyone have any thoughts?

I would quite like to have a way for my wife (when using puppy) to highlight a region and put a coloured circle around it (simply - without having to understand mtpaint functionality).

I use an older version of mtpaint but I know the newer version is rumoured to have more cli functionality - maybe there is an easy way to offer such an option (or even using a non-mtpaint method?)

Hi greengeek.

What I do when I need a portion of the screen is that I do a full screenshot
with TAS and then I edit it / crop it in mtpaint with the cursor by dragging
the dotted rectangle to focus on the part of the screen that I want.

Then I go to the Image sub-menu and click Crop. Voilà, it's done !

IHTH.

Yes - BUT - this is simple for those of us who know how to use mtpaint. The question is could TAS be expanded with a button that bypasses the mtpaint programme and lets the user select a rectangle (or circle) straight off the desktop (like "clipping tool" in Windows)?

You're a spoiled brat, greengeek, always wanting more like that! Wink
TAS is perfect as it is.

Yeah, puppy spoils me - always giving me the functionality I want Smile (that's why i stick with Puppy!).

Question: - when you have highlighted the desired region in mtpaint are you able to use the shift+ctrl+X shortcut to crop? (Not sure if that is a global mtpaint shortcut or if it is just the way my clipboard is modified)

Hello greengeek.

Yes.

The key combo for this operation is shown in the Image sub-menu vis-a-vis
"Crop". I tested it, and it works fine.

I don't understand your question. TAS already offers the choice to take a shot of the whole screen, a single window or a region. No need for mtpaint.

Oh yeah, so it does. Sometimes I amaze me with how stupid I am. Today is no exception.
Duh!
Confused
