Unable to trigger capture through RDP when window has focus

Description

Hi,

I'm having a question regarding capturing a region through an RDP session.
It might be I'm unable to find how or it might not be possible to do this right now. (then this might be a feature request)

When I open a Remote Desktop Connection (RDP) to another system I am unable to capture a screenshot (region or otherwise) when the RDP windows has focus or is in fullscreen (which would mean it also has focus). It seems that my RDP session interprets my hotkey instead of Greenshot picking it up.

I would like to be able to open an RDP session and have my hotkey be picked up by Greenshot instead of the host I'm connecting to. In the past I was able to do this with other tools by having some sort of option window hovering in "always on top" mode where I could click and trigger my screenshot tool that way. Since Greenshot does not seem to provide this I am forced to resize my RDP in to windowed mode and set my focus on a different window.

I'm using the latest available stable version. (1.1.6 build 2779 64bit)

Thank you in advance for you feedback.
Regards,
Dirk
