Snapshot Possible new bug

  • Looking for help to see if this can be reproduced by others.

    Open your webmail, anyservice. Open an email. Now click on Snapshot on top address bar.

    Now a Cropping box pops up.

    Before : The cropping box selection could be increased, and scrolll down the page to hold its position, so anything that goes OFF screen that was selected, remained selected.

    Now : The cropping box Moves itself Down the screen, so anything selected Above is no longer selected. The cropping box itself moves while scrolling.

    This need to be looked into, if anyone can try playing with this, its definitely something different now. I have taken a LOT of snapshots and regularly make use of this feature when I don't want to forward emails.

    Please fix this Cropping box so that it stays still while the user is selecting Long pages that require Scrolling off screen.

    Thank you kindly!

    That's still the case for me in Opera 65.0.3467.62 64-bit on Windows 10. However, while the cropping box works fine, when clicking capture, the generated image only shows the part of the page in the selection that's current showing in the viewport. I do remember it should to work better and generate an image as tall as the selection even if it was longer the what was shown in the viewport.

  • @burnout426 This bug has been there since snapshot was introduced; it's been pointed out and developers notified. It remains to this day.

    Try using Lightshot

    https://app.prntscr.com/en/index.html

    Works not just on Opera, but throughout Windows apps. Plus you can save in whatever format you like, to whatever folder you like (Lightshot remembers where you last saved.)

  • Thank you so much for the replies! I thought I was dreaming when I started to notice this problem. For me it just started, as prior to this I could Extend / Enlarge the cropping box to whatever size that was needed.

    Now the behavior is if you scroll down the page, the cropping box moves with you so when you go back to top of the page the cropping box no longer covers the area you thought you had selected earlier.

    This was the reason I did not get lightshot because I thought ok now this feature is built-in but back to lightshot.
