Hello,
We use Greeshot in our administration and we switched our Office Suite to LibreOffice.
What would be the way to make Greenshot interact with LibreOffice to generate files in the opendocument format?
regards

Hi BMO,
I know this is probably a day late and a dollar short, but you can add Libreoffice exporting manually using the external command with greenshot.Please see this Help article here

In my example, I added C:\Program Files\LibreOffice\program\swriter.exe as the command, and just kept the "{0}" which populates as the default argument.

However I did vote this issue up, as I would like greenshot which is free and open source to support another great free and open source program by default.

Hi Jake and BMO,

I have also tried the same for my Libre Office Writer.

Followed, http://getgreenshot.org/2013/01/28/how-to-use-the-external-command-plugin-to-send-screenshots-to-other-applications/ and took help from your example but I am facing an issue here.

After taking a screenshot I am able to see my Libre Office Writer but when I am selecting it so that the screenshot get copies there it is opening Libre Draw.
Same tested with Open Office, it is opening Draw instead of Writer.

Can someone help me here.

Regards,
Quaseem

Hi Jake,
With delay I come to answer your message.
Thank you very much for your solution.
I can now redirect my screenshots to LibreOfficeDraw. it's a very good solution.
Quaseem, I think it is normal for LibreOffice Draw to open because the copy is an image. In these conditions, as in LibreOffice the image editor is LibreOffice Draw, it is this tool that opens.
Cordially.
And big thanks to Jake for this great tool.

Hi BMO, Thanks for sharing this status. Yes I can understand but it doesn't happens in case of MS Word. After taking screenshot from greenshot we can directly select MS Word and it gets copy there. In the same way I am expecting swriter to work.
