  • (2017-01-21) Apollonia Helm: Could not get it to save the whole area of the capture.
  • (2016-12-04) rach: Only a small corner of the area I select for my screenshot ever actually saves? I do like the way that the screenshot guidelines work, and this app would probably be very useful if it saved the whole selected area.

  • (2020-04-17, v:0.2.2) Janet Prundl: stopped working
    When you click on the extension nothing happens. Tried to uninstall and reinstall and couldn't do that either. It's like it's frozen.
  • (2020-02-08, v:0.2.2) STEPHANIE WILSON: my snip.
    it stopped working. i keep getting ''errors''
  • (2019-06-11, v:0.2.2) elizabeth j: cropped pictures
    50% or more of the pictures that I frame with your tool are cropped off...usually the bottom half...
  • (2019-06-10, v:0.2.2) Vanessa Ciavarri: Cropping image
    As a teacher, I like to crop images from work sheets that I have scanned to my email. Although it appears as if I am able to crop my entire image with the ssssnip tool, it cuts off roughly the right 25% of my paper. Any images past the mid-line to the right only show half the image. Is this a change in settings?
  • (2018-02-17, v:0.2.2) Chris K: Cropped image is faaaaaaaar bigger than the original crop????
    Cropped image is faaaaaaaar bigger than the original crop???? Should be exactly 100% surely?
  • (2016-09-16, v:0.2.2) Cropping
    After making my selection, the image pops up for me to save or retry but it is greatly cropped. What is the fix for this problem?
  • (2015-01-30, v:0.2.2) Dan Seminara: Screenshotting menus
    When trying to take a screenshot of certain menu items (e.g. Google Docs), the act of clicking to take the screenshot de-focuses the menu and a screenshot is instead taken of whatever was behind the menu.
