Automate Word destination location



I've been using Greenshot for quite a while now, and as part of application install/config to our servers, we record screenshots step-by-step, for future reference.

These screenshots are sent to a Word document directly, but every time I take a new shot, I have to select whether this is going to the open document, say 'Document1' (the default name of a new doc), or to a new document altogether 'Microsoft Word'.

I'd like to ask for the option to be able to disable this feature and have Greenshot direct the screenshots to Document1 by default each time, without being prompted.

Would this be at all possible, or better still... is this feature already available somewhere and I've overlooked it?!

Many thanks and keep up the good work.

Hello Tom,

Currently this is not possible.
Although the change to the code to work like that would be easy, it currently is very time consuming to add a switch to the settings GUI for it. And we would need a switch, not everybody wants the word export to behave like that.

Currently we have decided to wait with changes to the settings, as we are completely rewriting Greenshot and have a new settings concept. Greenshot 1.2, which should come soon, has a few more tools in the editor but no changes to the settings.

As soon as we finish rewriting Greenshot, this would be Greenshot 2, we will add some new features. We are considering session captures, all go to the same destination. Or a history where one can export multiple captures to one destination.

Best wishes,

I would also like to see this feature. I've been a long time user of Snagit but just switched to Greenshot. I like everything except I miss the ability to capture to MS Word without the extra click each time to choose the document. Please don't forget about this in a future version.

I would like to be able to auto save directly to word AND pdf.

We're trying to get our company to convert from SnagSh*t to Greenshot and noticed one person out of a few hundred is using this feature, not sure how many more there are lurking. Any snags like this will hinder my argument to make the switch
