The function that makes a screenshot of the Desktop, then you press the print key, is an old functionality of BeOS. The screenshot will be numbert and stored under /boot/home/.
Under Haiku, this function has been extended, because are now a user interface named screenshot.
If you press the print key the user interface will be open.
- Capture active window: With this setting, the screenshot will be taken from the active window, not from the complete desktop.
- Include window border: With this setting, the border of the Window will be included.
- Include mouse pointer: With this setting, the mouse pointer will be included.
- Delay: Here you can set up in how many seconds the screenshot should be made.
- Name: Here you can set up a name for the screenshot.
- Save in: Here you set up the place there the screenshot will be stored.
Default is "/boot/home".
- Save as: Here you can set up the graphic format.
Default is "PNG".
- Settings: here you can set upt graphic format specific settings.
- Copy to clipboard: If you press this button a screenshot will be stored into the Clipboard. You can paste the stored picture into another program using "Add" or using the shortcut "Alt+v".
- New screenshot: if you press this button a new screenshot will be displayed into the preview area.
- Save: Now save your settings for next using.
You can do this over the Terminal too:
| Screenshot [OPTIONS] [FILE] Creates a bitmap of the current screen
FILE is the optional output path / filename used in silent mode. An exisiting file with the same name will be overwritten without warning. If FILE is not given the screenshot will be saved to a file with the default filename in the user's home directory.
