Enhanced PrintScreen [ Clip | Capture ] with RWin Passthrough

WHAT IT DOES
───────────────────

I've been using Lenovo ThinkPad Keyboards for a while now, and lately I've been feeling like:

I use a ton of (native) hotkeys for SublimeText & other apps, and it's super useful to have a full set of modifiers on each side ( 2X hotkey combinations ftw! ).

So I wrote a script which does the following:
  1. PrintScreen to clip a selected area of the screen
  2. Shift + PrintScreen to clip a selected area of the screen & annotate it @ Skitch
  3. Ctrl + PrintScreen to capture the entire screen
  4. Shift + PrintScreen to capture the entire screen & annotate it @ Skitch
  5. RWin passthrough on PrintScreen + [Optional] Modifiers + Any Key
Instead of Windows' native PrintScreen function, I used Windows Snipping Tool and Skitch.

BENEFITS
────────────

Snipping Tool
  • can clip portions of the screen, as well as capture the entire screen
  • automatically copies the image to the clipboard, so you can quickly paste the image to your preferred editor
  • allows saving the image at an arbitrary location, rather than being limited to the predefined Pictures/Screenshots directory
Skitch
  • quickly & easily annotate images with features including: text, arrows, shapes, marker, highlighter, icons, & blur

NOTES

[1]
I used Snipping Tool in place of Skitch's clip function, because Snipping Tool loads faster & has a nicer overlay during clipping.

Thanks @lexicos for help with the RWin passthrough function :thumbup:
