Hi,

Great application,
I suggest to make improvement in the editor so that drawing tools could work outside of original screenshot original boundaries.

A typical usage for me is when I make a screenshor and then I would like to write some text on it or at the side of the screenshot. Is this possible currently?

Could be interesting to have a different "text tool with arrow integration" so that you could just make an arrow and start typing a text on that position.

(The current text tool could have option to work outside of a text box, or maybe to work in a dynamic updated textbox)

Portable setting can be also a great addition!

Have a great day :)

    I also support the request for editing the space outside the screenshot.
    It would be a great help.

    Thanks for your suggestions.

    For better conciseness, I suggest to reduce this tracker item's scope to the "extra white space" request, and discuss "text tool with arrow" in this similar item: https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=3033949&group_id=191585&atid=937975.

    (Just doing some tracker item cleanup...)

    Thanks and best regards.
    Jens

    would be great .. thanks a lot for a great tool
    possibly as an addition:

    to autocrop to reduce the extra white space afterwards

  • I think most people are requesting to allow to increase the size of the canvas so that they can annotate or add one more image just like we can do in mspaint. If this feature is added then most people wouldn't not use mspaint :).

    Really wanted feature! Now I need to copy the image to another editor, change the image size and import back to GreenShot.

    P.S. This issue is similar to #499.
