adding EXPORTing of all opened greenshot screens INTO THE SAME EXCEL FILE (Word, PDF) (Excel is priority)
I would give an example when this feature as needed.
Today, I had a online ZOOM lecture at my job.
During the presentation, I made a screenshot of every slide shown.
So, I got about 50 greenshot screenshots opened in editor mode (at the same time I saved them).
I want to save them all into one file, say, Excel file at the same time, so later I can open it and read them in one document instead of opening each file saved.
Another situation. I work as software developer. I make changes in different parts of the system developed.
It could be 30-50 during a day. I make greenshot screenshots of every change I made and add comments to it by using text, highlighting, arrows. It would comprise a log of the job done during a day.
When there are 50-70 screenshots opened and I want to review last screenshot, I have to hover a mouse over Greenshot icon in the toolbar which shows all opened greenshot screenshots.
But the list is limited to 30 or 40 of them. So, I had to scroll down to the last one by pressing arrow down key. It takes about 10-20 seconds to get to the last one each time.
If I would be able to save all of opened screenshot and close currently opened, it would show only several last ones, so I can easy open and review them.
Currently, at the end of each day, I copy all opened greenshot screenshots and insert it into Excel file.
It take about half an hour or more depending on how many files are opened.
If I would be able to save all of them at once, it would be a big help.
I prefer saving screenshots into Excel, because I can move them around and resize them, or say put several screen next to each other, make a new screenshot and add comments or arrows to show relationship between parts of the combined screenshots. I can put several screenshots horizontally in Excel, there is no space bounds to the right. This is not a case for a Word page.
Saving order in Excel, Word, or PDF should be based on time screenshot was created, it is shown in the screenshot title bar according to a file naming set in preferences.
I understand, it could be difficult to export into Excel, since a cell below of last exported screenshot is needed to export next image.
If the new feature would be implemented only for saving in Word, it would be fine, since I can easily copy and paste all of the screenshots into Excel.
Can you describe this in more details?
This sounds like an edge case, maybe something one needs every now and than. I myself can’t think of a reason where I would like to have such a thing.
Especially, how should Greenshot know where to export it (in the excel) and in what order?
Exporting an image to Excel is actually quite weird, as it doesn’t really sit in a cell.
For Word I can image, as you can type around it and do formatting yourself
But when we talk about PDF, what do you expect there? A screenshot per “page”?
Please describe as much as you can, about what you expect.
