can't grab region on secondary monitor
« on: August 21, 2007, 03:47 AM »
i use 2 monitors in my setup.
for some reason i can't grab regions in my secondary monitor.
i tried 'selected region' and 'fixed size region' but both disappear when i move my cursor to the second monitor.

I'm afraid this is a known bug not yet resolved -- these two modes only work on the monitor your mouse is on when you trigger them.. you have 3 options until it's fixed:
  • go to second monitor and then trigger the hotkey to capture region
  • go to options and choose to use the alternate redbox capture mode for regions
  • capture full screen or workspace and crop
