Understanding Fireshot - Bitmap or Text..

Just starting to use Fireshot. I'm trying to understand if Fireshot just captures a bitmap image? For example if I capture a screen displaying text and an image will the text be retained as text or will the whole be captured as a single bitmap image? If I save something to PDF can I then search, index and/or extract text content?

Hi martini, FireShot captures only to bitmaps. No text capabilities when saved to PDF.

Thanks. Understood. I appreciate this would be difficult to achieve but it limits the usefulness of saved information.
