Spectacle/Tutorials/Invoking Spectacle with custom shortcuts

    From KDE UserBase Wiki

    The default way to capture your screen to a file is to press the PrintScreen key. The program Spectacle will pop up. It allows you to capture

    • the complete screen
    • single windows
    • a rectangular region on the screen

    However, some people want their screenshots to be stored without any further interaction. This can be useful during documentation work when you want to do a lot of screenshots without interrupting work. One solution is to set up Shift + PrintScreen to trigger a screenshot. To do this

    • start System Settings, navigate to Shortcuts -> Custom Shortcuts -> Take Full Screen Screenshot
    • click on Trigger -> Shortcut and press Shift + PrintScreen. Shift+Print should then appears in the button:
    Setting up Shift + PrintScreen as global shortcut
    Setting up Shift + PrintScreen as global shortcut
    • click on Apply

    Now whenever you press Shift + PrintScreen your screen will be saved to your Pictures folder with a timestamp in its name, e.g. Screenshot_20190107_224731.png.
