Delay before taking page screenshot

Pages: 1
Posted:  26 Feb 2009 12:52
When I am writing blog entries on software or bug reports, I often need to take screenshots of pull-down menus, but they disappear when I click on the icon etc.

It would be very nice if it was possible to take a screenshot with a delay of x seconds, so that I can reactivate the pull-down menu before the shot is taken.

Any chance of that feature being implemented?

Thank you for the plugin. I use it dozens of times each day.

In case of plugin for Firefox: what about hotkey (Ctrl + Alt + Z)?

Ah, I forgot that, because it is interrupted by another plugin, Zotero. However, having disabled Zotero, the FireShot hotkey does work, but it closes the pull-down menu before it takes the snapshot.

ScreenShot Studio does have a Take Screenshot in 5 Seconds, but it does not support my secondary monitor. Even if it did, it does close the pull-down menu as well (I tried it on my primary monitor).

Yes, I also need this feature: Take a screenshot with a delay.
Why does Screenshot Studio have this feature and Fireshot does not?

I was not sure about the purpose of this feature in FireShot. Can you suggest please?

A delay of X seconds is useful in capturing things like drop-down menus.

There are other times when a delay is useful; I just can't think of more right now.

Other screen capture software support variable delays; I hope FireShot will too.

Does Fireshot have a delay option?

I'm guessing no because there's no answer to this thread.

A delay is useful to capture drop-down menus.

I wonder if capturing via hotkey helps to perform this task?

I also find the feature of a delay important, because many users like me already have other tools with hotkeys that then overlay the one from FireShot. That's why I'm happy to support this request to make it available without a hotkey. Maybe you can put the delay in the settings and realize the function with or without delay as a menu item with checkmark? Then you can easily switch it on or off before capture.

This may work the following way: if a user clicks the command with the ALT key pressed, the delay is engaged according to the value provided in Options. If this looks good, we may introduce this feature in one of the ongoing updates.
