(Archived) Taking screenshots of a Window


Recommended Posts

With the default OS X screenshot tool, when you hit the space bar, you can take screenshots of the current window your mouse is on top of. This is a hugely useful tool. I would love to see Skitch get this ability. 


Yes, you can use the crosshair tool and try to get a window, but it will never be perfect and the other way is so much faster.

Joeworkman, you can do this by clicking on Skitch's "Blank" option underneath the screensnap options.


First use the CMD+Ctrl+Shift+4+Space to get the screenshot of the window (with shadow & border radius, etc.) into your clipboard.


Then open up Skitch, select "Blank" option and hit CMD+V to paste the item in skitch.


That's it! After I'm done skitching, I usually copy/paste that into whatever I need it to be.
