I never see one so it does appear as if it is something external to the script that is not happening on mine

I just saw it on another boot of VSIDO... let me check something first

I can get it to work if I do not touch anything on the terminal... I want to alt-tab from the terminal to something else to draw the rectangle around OR, as the original thought was, let the terminal minimize as soon as the choice to draw rectangle happens..

Will play with it more

Yes, you can't touch any keys etc .. or the shot is taken immediately.

Yesterday, I set the timer at 30 seconds and had plenty of time to minimize the terminal and set up other windows for the shot. Once the timer is going, the script (or scrot) releases focus/control.

The color of the rectangle is apparently a scrot internal - I cahnged my desktop colors and the rectangle is changed to be visible - some color matching code within scrot.
I am tired of talk that comes to nothing.

By adding the 10 second count down (scrot -s -d10 -c "${NAME}") to the script I lose the function completely ... if the default is there I can use and see the rectangle. The problem is the terminal being in the way

@hakerdefo:

A third option should be available on every image (IMO) :

Code: [Select]
Would you like to upload the shot to imgur?

Press "Y" to upload the shot to imgur
Press "N" to go back to the main menu
Press "D" to Delete the image and go back to the main menu

Enter Your Choice:

This in effect lets you start over and takes the image out of play completely... right now I have a ton of test images I have to go back to and delete from the scrot directory

I set the time for 30 and minimize and I completely lose the function to capture.. I cannot create the rectangle then. I can create it before I minimize the terminal and only if the terminal is in focus

Right. I wasn't detailing that properly. Once your area is selected and the timer starts, the terminal can be minimized.

So the real key to this is to have something you want to mark with a rectangle already opened and outside and away completely from your terminal

Then the marking is easy... no need for a timer at all



But the hard part is if I wanted to capture part of this screen now, it is way too large to fit away from and/or beside the terminal that I use so in effect I cannot mark anything on this page without also marking terminal as well and ONLY if I click outside of the terminal boundaries first

Just for the record & OT

Been trying maim in Void (didn't bothered about escrotum after reading the readme and the man page). I miss the scrot's -e waaaay more than the missing -u (which led me to maim). Also maim is quite slow rendering the image files compared with the instant scrot. Plus, for some reason when shooting a focused urxvt window with transparency it doesn't grab the background. scrot is WYSIWIG. So back to good ol' scrot besides it can be glitchy sometimes when selecting areas. I don't use to shoot focused windows. I typically do selected areas of full screen. Homework done. ;)
