[ BUG REPORT ] - Maximum screenshot resolution too low
« on: January 21, 2022, 01:01 PM »
The maximum screenshot size (for a simple 1 monitor screen) is 5120 x 2880, which is certainly more than enough for most people.

I can get 8120 x 4289 for an entire workspace screenshot.

For a single application window screenshot, I can get full 8k at 7680 x 4260.

I can't get a full screen 1 monitor shot for my 8k monitor. (Set to 150% DPI scaling, which likely plays a factor.)

I think scaling is an issue, which should affect other users with (different) scaling on 1 or more monitors.

Can you elaborate a little -- what goes wrong?

I'll post back later with screenshots so you can see. Short version, everything gets wonky and bizarre selections for SHIFT + PRTSCN happen.

This gets pretty wonky, so the best way is just to show you screenshots & whatnot.

The 8K monitor - screenshot with Windows snipping tool:

The entire workspace - screenshot with Windows snipping tool:

Images are too large for a single post. SSC shots in next one.

8K monitor with SSC - display capture:

Notice the clipping.

Entire workspace with SSC:

Again, clipping.

Here's a video (OBS display capture) that shows a few captures and most importantly, SHIFT + PRTSCN for a selected region.



You can see how SSC "can't see" the right side of bottom of the screen.

And here are some screenshots with info about the 8k monitor setup:

Screen 3 is the primary display.

Notice that "Scale and layout" is set to 150%. This is to improve font clarity and size. It doesn't work perfectly. (See "VLC media player" and the "Windows Explorer" shots below.)

Notice the various font sizes and overflow problems. Windows scaling isn't perfect.

Notice the small text in the status bar at the bottom.
