Description gnumuthu 2005-10-21 18:50:54 UTC
I guess lot of people use, OO.o, its a great application, but lacks 
this feature for me. I do some software documentation, or technical graphs in
report writing, and I need to insert some screenshots, from my desktop directly
into OO.o applications. 

Right now theres a workaround, I use GIMP to capture the photo, and use 
Insert->Graphics->From File  in the menus to load the image.

Now I think its a waste of time, on the user. She would love it to happen
the other way:

"Open OO.o, do your simulation or test-software on the other screen, and 
make sure you can allow, them to capture the screen or window or a region
and paste it directly into the OO.o document.

Just say Insert->Graphics->Screenshot, and presto! OO.o the giant sledge hammer
will crack this nut. 

Our venerable user, has her time saved, listening to the iPod, and just finished
inserting several nice screenshots & documentation into the program, making
here some 5X faster, at work! 

Thank you OO.o.

Well Id like this USE case to become true.

I guess, you can add an API to do simple stuff, of capturing a window,
and rendering it into a PNG/JPG image, and putting that into the current
document, or at the mouse position.

Its really a great, thing Id like to see happen, because
it could ease lives, and also encourage people to write software documentation
bazillion times faster.

Thank You

Not sure if OOo has to provide everything,  especially as there are lots of
screenshot utilities for various platforms available. They probaly do their job
good enough and might even put the image in the clipboard so that you can easily
paste it. I see no need for it, but this is only my opinion...

ssa->bh: you handle rfe's, right ?

bh -> ssa: Yes, that is right, but that under the owner requirements, I've
created, as some other people from OOo marketing are evaluating also. Thanks for
the issue.
