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:
- PrintScreen to clip a selected area of the screen
- Shift + PrintScreen to clip a selected area of the screen & annotate it @ Skitch
- Ctrl + PrintScreen to capture the entire screen
- Shift + PrintScreen to capture the entire screen & annotate it @ Skitch
- RWin passthrough on PrintScreen + [Optional] Modifiers + Any Key
- 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
- quickly & easily annotate images with features including: text, arrows, shapes, marker, highlighter, icons, & blur
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
