[Help] How can I make Window snapshot scroll?

Postby Distro-Don on Wed Jan 01, 2014 5:16 pm

How do I take a snapshot of a window to upload to the Mint forum and have the scroll bar work? This is what I have now and it doesn't scroll, as you can see.
Thanks for any help.

Might supply WM used Mate? Cinnamon? KDE?,etc...
As each has their own default snapshot tools or ability to add a snapshot tool from the repo's.
That may support scrollable window capture.

As I use KDE and it's snapshot tool doesn't appear to have a scrollable window option.
http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=109&t=132081
But searching the repo's may show an alternative available.

Or alternative method would be capture top half window.
Then scroll down capture 2nd window. Would require merging two images.
Or in case of posting forums or emails then inline posting 2 images on top of each other.

I am using Mate. I also have installed ksnapshot. I have tried Prt Scr, Alt Prt Scr and anything else that I could think of and nothing does it for me. I have no ideaopf how to post one image on top of another. Thanks for trying though.

In forum use would be upload insert 1st image then right below upload and insert 2nd image so they are on top of each other.
Same for email when embedding images in email.

For other uses will be stuck with 2 separate images unless you merge them in a photo editing program that supports stitching.

Depends on your intended use which methods may be acceptable.

The forum images have a size limitations. And don't remember what they are.
You will have to be more specific what issues you are having and what forum as in here?

Find first image and then select upload attachment tab below.
Browse to image on your hardrive then click add the file.
Place cursor in body of message and select "Place inline"

First, Thank you for all this help. I am 79 years old so I need detailed instructions.
I can't seem to get this right for some reason. I can:
"Find first image and then select upload attachment tab below.
Browse to image on your hardrive then click add the file."
But I can't
Place cursor in body of message and select "Place inline"
because I need the cursor to be able to select "Place inline"
I assume I am to do the same for the second file.
Where do I place these?

Well not sure I understand

1) Click on browse button select image on your hardrive then click on "add the file" button to upload it to the forum.

2) Then place cursor in position where you want to insert the image in the body of text in the compose message box.
And then click Place inline button to insert it into body of message box.

As this dialog below shows I clicked on "Place Inline" button and it inserted the code where the cursors I placed before clicking.

I can get that far but can't overwrite the 1st image with the second image in order to be able to scroll.

They are two separate images captured and inserted separately and individually not made into one scrollable image.
So confused by "can't overwrite the 1st image with the second image in order to be able to scroll."

As you can't make one scrollable image just a stack of two separate images.
Each image uploaded and each inserted image code into message.
Two separate apart not merged. We are Stacking two boxes on top of each other.
Not merging two boxes into a bigger scrollable box.

This is as far as I can get so far.
Could you please upload a snapshot that can be scrolled. And if you can, please upload simple step by step instructions, from the start to the finish, on how you accomplished this. Thanks again! /don

Yep you uploaded them as attachments but did not insert them into the body of text.
The next step is to place cursor where you want image. Then look for place inline button will insert image into the body of text.
Then repeat for 2nd image place cursor where you want the image in the body of text before clicking on placing inline button.
Look at images I posted to see where the images are listed below the body text and there is two buttons place inline and delete.

Nope as I explained you cannot make a scrollable window. What you have presented is all there is.
Now instead of file managers. Do a copy of the browser window. In the browser capture the top half of page and save.
Then scroll the browser window down to present the bottom half of page then capture that as the 2nd capture.
Then you can post them one on top of other like your example above to cover the full content of the web page.
