I use this great tool quite often for my guideline documents and presentations.
The only function I miss is an eraser to get rid of graphics caught in the windows.
good to hear you like Greenshot!
Could you describe in detail how you would want the eraser to function?
I love Greenshot, happy the undo functionality was added. I like the obfuscator, very cool. But I am really missing an eraser. I like the way it's done in other tools, e.g. with http://www.picpick.org you can just start erasing bits of the image once selected. Is there a plan to add an eraser?
I second this request ! Would be nice to have a pencil icon with a big eraser tip - click on the icon - hold the left mouse button and move the mouse across the part of the graphic that you want to erase. Thanks.
Can you explain which behavior exactly you expect when you are speaking of "erasing"?
"Replace with transparency" is probably not what you want…
"Replace with a chosen color"? This would be exactly what the freehand tool does. (Actually painting over the screenshot.) Of course you could also erase complete areas e.g. using a filled rectangle.
If you expect Greenshot to somehow "guess" the right color, it would probably be a little bit more complicated to develop and maybe confusing in some cases…
Thanks and best regards,
Ok, thanks for asking! Grabbing the eraser and just rubbing out bits, leaving white underneath was the functionality I have seen in others that I like. I have always wanted to be able to select an adjacent colour and have that replace the white space rubbed out so the eraser work is seamless. But I have never that done, that would be uber cool. Would you need to guess the colour if the user selected an adjacent colour? Good luck :-)
Thanks for clarification :) Actually you can work around this, by drawing a white (or whichever color the background is) freehand line, rectangle, … the color picker even offers a pipette tool for picking up a color from anywhere.
However, if used often, this is a bit cumbersome (as you always have to reset line thickness/color before being able to actually draw again with the tool).
I have added a feature request in our tracker: https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=3588153&group_id=191585&atid=937975
Thanks for your input, best regards,
