[REQUEST] Take screenshot capability

edited February 17 in The Archive

Hi,
I'm testing The Archive app right now and I like it a lot!
I have discovered the "Capture Image..." function. What I find that would be super helpful is the ability to take a screenshot of the screen. I would need that almost daily in my work. Optimally we could also use the already existing "Generate Zettel ID" (command + U) function when saving the image as a part of the file name.

    Can't you capture a screenshot the "normal" way (in Windows or the Mac OS) and then use that?

    What do you mean "when saving the image as part of the file name"?

    I could, but that would also apply to the already existing "capture image" feature, I can also take a photo with my webcam the "normal" way and then use it. An integrated "take screenshot" would just make the workflow faster and easier.

    When I currently capture an image I have to enter a filename afterwards, here it would be cool to be able to use Command + U to generate an ID for the filename:

    So for example like this:

  • @user0815 A lot of people build extra capability onto The Archive using Keyboard Maestro or Alfred. There is an extensive "library" of KM capabilities discussed in this forum - you might want to check those out to search on these and see if there already exists a macro with the capabilities for which you are looking.

  • @user0815 Thanks writing the request! Noted. We have a couple of capturing ideas for the future, but no promises what will appear in The Archive v1 or when :)
