Esc Key

Thank you Mouser for the new update.  :)

I just want to write you that the <ESC> key doesn't work as it has to be (I suppose):

When I click <ESC> after having invoked a screenshot capture shortcut, the screenshot is not interrupted.
Is that a bug, or did I do something wrong?

using the normal selected region capture mode, with the full screen size crosshairs, or using redbox mode?

Is there any other program that may be monitoring or changing the keyboard or mouse clicks? That's all I can think of, sorry.

Escape works here to cancel it.

Yes you're right, it gives a windows error sound but it interrupts the screenshot.

Today I was a bit more conscious to try to see when I used the Escape Key when it didn't work.
I found it out.

I selected the region but the region was not correct, so I used immediately the Escape key after I released the left button, but it didn't react.
This morning I had the same thing again.

You can use the escape key while holding the left mouse button down.
That is the way I cancel selected region.
Escape will not cancel after you let the left click go.

or unpressing the left click -
is that a word 'unpressing' ?

or should it be 'depressing' :-\
maybe better with a dash: de-pressing :)
