    Sorry for the late reply, I thought I had subscribed to this thread.


    1. Skitch does indeed copy the URL when you upload to FTP. It is the last option on the FTP settings page. Mine says: "Clipboard: Plain URL". The problem is that the filename in the URL is wrong. It ends with _png instead of .png (basicly what @DirkVos said).
      (In the previous version it also uploaded the file without the file extension since it also replaced the filename with _png – but that seems to be fixed in this version. It is only the copied URL that is wrong)

      The steps I do is:
      1. Keyboard shortcut. Take screenshot.
      2. Press on the share button and select the FTP account I want to use.
      (I really want a shortcut for the different sharing options, or the option to set the default sharing option so I could use the default cmd + shift + m)

      I have also tested this on two different FTP servers on different hosts. Same problem on both.

    2. I am not logged in. I only use Skitch with FTP, so I have no need for being logged in. But it could be that logging is an easier bug workaround than adding and removing a dummy FTP account. Because this is clearly a bug.

  2. I have a Macbook Pro Retina 15" connected to a 24" monitor. So a dual monitor setup (internal and external).


    Running Skitch Version 2.7.1 (263266)


    My two problems:


    1. Problem with file extension when uploading to ftp.

    When I upload to FTP (I have unique filename checked) I get an URL copied to the clipboard simular to this: "http://domain.com/folder/image_name_uniquekey_png/". If I change the URL to .png instead of _png it works (on previous beta version it actually did name the file just "_png", but I just updated and that seems to be fixed)


    2. Dissappearing sharing options

    If I quit Skitch.app, but have the helper running in the background I can take skitch screenshots by pressing "cmd + shift + 5", but when I want to upload this to my FTP the only option I have is Mail. To fix this I can go into settings, add and remove a dummy ftp account, and the settings is back.


    Feature request:

    - Shortcut for uploading to FTP. If I remember correctly this was cmd + enter in Skitch 1.


    (And for the record: I've been a long time skitch user, but just recently dared upgrading to the new version. It's getting there, but still not top notch.)


  3. Hi all,

    I've been using Skitch almost since the day it came out, and I really like it. I use it to share/comment on ideas, teach people what to do, keep notes on something I need to remember for a short while, etc.

    I've only used the new 2.0 version a couple of hours, but it looks like the new version has removed some of the best features.


    • Ability to set privacy options on images (and if they are indexed by google by default, that is even worse..)
    • Ability to auto copy URL on publish (preference to choose witch URL. Direct, web, etc.).
    • Ability to upload to FTP (one of the nicest features on Skitch. Please don't cripple this app to force people to pay for Evernote)
    • Press "alt" to change direction arrows
    • Preference to remove dock-icon, and only have menu-bar icon.
    • Ability to press "shift" to get timer countdown.

    Nice new features:

    • Pixelate tool (time consuming to go into PS whenever that is needed)

    Thank you for reading. :)
