Windows shortcut keys, and square pen key
It would be cool to use this tool, it looks pretty good. I would say though Zoomit and OneNote snipping still beats it for me. I love Zoomit's ctrl key and r g keys. The ctrl key is nice as you can use it to put a box around an area I am trying to highlight in my snip.
also it is nice to have windows short cut keys to start a new snip. that would be handy in this tool. it looks pretty kewl, but a few improvements would make it rock.
Folks, we added configurable short-cut keys and delayed snips today.
We ship capabilities weekly and the app auto-updates so you will get this automatically when its delivered.
did you guys add the delayed snips? I cant see it?

Yeah! Keyboard shortcut for basic capture to clip board is huuuuge +1 for me. Always found that to be hugely convenient feature of OSX.

Currently we support PrintScreen. it could capture the pull down menu. Hope it will be helpful to you!
Please be free to let us know if you need addional feature.
Would be cool to be able to change it to a function key or another key.
OneNote snipping shortcut keys are broken with 2016. No more Win-N, S. Sad.
Awesome to have this as a viable replacement!
Came here to suggest a windows shortcut key. Found that it uses the Printscreen key. Love it! This should be more clear in the UI.

It would be nice to be able to copy the image with a Ctrl+C (not having to click on the Copy button)

Use keyboard shortcut for capture and allow pull down menus to be captured
Give up the option to use a keyboard shortcut to active the app rather than have the app on the top of the screen. Currently, I have been using OneNote with a shortcut to invoke the screen capture for this purpose (but will be trying your app for the same purpose).

You can define a shortcut within the properties of the executable itself. Go to the EXE, right mouse, Properties, Shortcut. I use CTRL-ALT-P
I know you can dock the snip app anywhere and its always open, but for those who like have all their favourite tools in the task bar, or those who like a keyboard shortcut, this would make for great productivity.
Many keyboards don’t have a PrnScn key anymore. I use a 60% mechanical keyboard myself.
Please allow a keyboard shortcut like Shift+Alt+4 to bring up the tool.
Only wish it had a keyboard shortcut similar to what I used to have on OSX, nothing involving the PrnScn button since many keyboards don’t even have that key anymore. I use a 60% mechanical keyboard myself.
Somehting like Shift+Alt+4 to bring up the tool would be best.
keyboard hotkey would be useful and a must for such kind of tool.
i use ctrl+shift+c for my screenclipping, but in general, yeah, this!
if there is the option to do this, then please let me know

You can start a new snip simply by pressing the PrintScreen key. This enables you to capture menus as well. In the existing Snipping Tool the shortcut was CTRL-PrtSc. I have not seen this feature documented though.
Can you add a key combination to start the program? I see that PrtScn works when Snip is already running, but how about Windows+PrtScn to start Snip when it is not already running?
