    Could you please try our latest release (1.0) and let us know whether you still have problems?
    A lot of capture related things have changed since version 0.8 and as I cannot reproduce this, I think this issue might be resolved by now.

    Get Greenshot at http://getgreenshot.org/ and please drop another comment if the problem persists.

    Thanks and best regards,

    This problem is fixed with Greenshot 1.0, get it here: http://getgreenshot.org/downloads/

    If the problem somehow still exists in 1.0, or you find any others, please let us know here: http://getgreenshot.org/tickets/

    Best wishes,
