Looking at the current Spectacle settings, I'd like to suggest a few changes and maybe additions.
- Move Copy file location to clipboard after saving to the General settings tab in the "After taking screenshot" section, instead of where it is now in the Save settings tab. Change the behavior of the checkboxes: When both Autosave the image to the default location & Copy file location to clipboard after saving are active, disable the checkbox Copy image to clipboard. When Copy image to clipboard & Autosave the image to the default location are active, disable Copy file location to clipboard after saving. Reason: One can't have both the image AND the file location in the clipboard after taking and saving (using autosave) a Screenshot.
- Considering this bug: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=420477 , and my first suboptimal approach to fix it in D29596 , I'd suggest multiple solutions (even tho I know we want to have less options and not exaggerate with options):
a) in the Shortcuts tab add an option to override the default settings so shortcuts have their own settings (see mockup): b) If 1. is implemented, move the "After taking screenshot" section outside of "When Sspectacle is Running" section so it becomes clear that these settings are also valid for screenshots that are taken with Shortcuts.
Considering 2. I'd personally prefer b), assuming that users would understand that the "After taking screenshot" settings are also valid if Spectacle was not running but has been launched with Shortcuts. Also 2. b) means less new options, whereas 2.a) would mean more flexibility.
I hope that 'Tasks' is an adequate place to ask/make suggestions before someone starts coding and his code ends up in the abyss because it's not wanted/required :)
