For what purpose?

Also, Konsole is moving to GitLab:

Any chance you can re-submit this there?

@ngraham Today, users can only copy the text of the current content of Konsole.

And if they want to show the content as an image, they need to use an external screen print tool.

So it would be nice for them if Konsole could generate an image directly.

An external screenshot tool is pretty trivial to activate and use though. Meta+++Print will use spectacle to take a screenshot of the current app that appears in a nice notification, which can be dragged-and-dropped anywhere. It's super fast and super nice and it works in any app, so you don't need to learn an app-specific feature.

I'm not necessarily opposed to this, but I feel like we need to probe the expected use case a bit more and make sure we're actually improving the workflow.

I don't think that duplicating functions already provided by external tools on all supported platforms is good. Each feature means more code and more possible things to break.

Caio, while understand the usecase I do agree with the rest of the reviews.
