What is Snipaste?
Snipaste is a simple but powerful screenshot tool that also allows you to paste screenshots back to the screen! Download and open Snipaste, press F1 to start screenshot, select "Copy to Clipboard", then press F2, the screenshot will be displayed on top of the desktop. It's that simple!
You can also convert text or color information in the clipboard into an image window. You can zoom, rotate these texture windows, or make them translucent, and even let the mouse penetrate them! If you are a programmer, designer, or spend most of your working time on a computer, I believe you can appreciate the efficiency improvements that Snipaste brings to you.
Snipaste is free software. It is also very secure. It has no ads, does not scan your hard drive, and does not upload user data. It only does what it should do.
Snipaste is simple to use, but also has some hidden features that can further improve your productivity. If you are interested, please read the documentation here carefully. This time investment is absolutely worthwhile.
Snipaste pursues intuition, and as far as I understand, it means:
There is no text on the software to indicate whether a feature exists, and you think it should exist, then it is likely to be
Such as revoking all labels
Shortcuts for a certain function of the software, in accordance with the hidden rules of software design or user interaction
For example, to undo all annotations, its shortcut is Ctrl + Shift + Z
Shortcut for a function of the software, you can infer how to call it
Such as undoing all labels, it has no buttons on the software. But to undo the last callout, it has a button on the toolbar, and its shortcut is Ctrl + Z, then you can probably infer that Shift + Undo button = Undo all callouts
In fact, good software is usually intuitive. This is also a pleasure to use good software, and is a tacit and spiritual communication between developers and users.
If you read the instructions all at once, you may be able to master Snipaste completely, but at the same time give up this fun.
The following sections describe the basic features of Snipaste.

In non-editing state, press the right mouse button
At any time, the windows of other programs are activated, such as pressing the Windows key to display the start menu. This is also why there is an option to block the Windows key in the option, which is to prevent you from accidentally pressing it, which causes the hard-working screenshot to disappear.

Here are some issues you might encounter when running Snipaste
After running it encountered the error api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll missing from your computer.
Please download and install the corresponding Microsoft Visual C ++ 2015 Redistributable Package according to the version of the operating system (32-bit / 64-bit).
After running, it prompts dll files such as Qt5Core.dll.
For the first time using Snipaste, download the full package, not the update package.
After running xp 32bit, it prompts that Snipaste.exe is not a valid Win32 application.
Please go to the official website download page to download the complete package or update package for XP system.
The toolbar is blank or the icons are garbled.
Please turn on your system's firewall.
Snipaste uses ttf fonts to store icons. If the system firewall is turned off, the system does not allow opening ttf font files, so the icons cannot be loaded, resulting in the toolbar icons not displaying properly. Note that Snipaste does not install fonts on your system, it just calls its built-in ttf font. As for why the ttf font is related to the system firewall, please ... ask Microsoft customer service.
After restarting Snipaste, the configuration file returned to the default state.
Please check your disk permissions issues.
Snipaste needs permission to read / write config.ini in the program directory. Note that this is not to say that you want to run Snipaste with administrator rights, Snipaste does not require administrator rights. But if your disk has a permission problem (usually caused by a system upgrade), Snipaste may not be able to write to the config.ini file, resulting in the configuration file always being the default state. As for how to solve the problem of disk permissions, please use your own search engine to search. If you can't solve it, a feasible solution is to run Snipaste with administrator privileges. Please be assured that if Snipaste is downloaded from the official website, it will not do superfluous things even if it has obtained administrator rights.
When taking a screenshot, the mouse will automatically exit the screenshot.
Please turn off word extraction, translation and other similar functions of the dictionary software.
To elaborate on the reason, the word-scratching function usually monitors your mouse operations or auxiliary key operations (Ctrl and these) globally (not to hack them, presumably the technical need for global word retrieval).
Unable to clear shortcuts.
Click the Ctrl key. Similarly, you can also click the Shift or Alt key.
After v1.4, you can use Backspace to clear shortcuts.
Cannot set screenshot shortcut to PrintScreen.
Snipaste calls QxtGlobalShortcut to implement global hotkeys. This module does not support capturing PrintScreen keystrokes and shortcut keys used by the system. I also do not plan to modify it to support it. If you insist on using these shortcuts, ask for help from third-party software such as AutoHotkey.
You cannot set shortcut keys to some normal key combinations (such as Ctrl + Alt + A).
This is because the key combination has been registered by other software, please cancel the shortcut key of other software first.
Cannot automatically select page elements of Chrome browser window when taking screenshots
Please enable Global accessibility mode at chrome: // accessibility /.
No additional settings are required for Firefox and Internet Explorer.
The window automatically recognized when taking a screenshot is enlarged.
The larger circle is usually the area occupied by the window shadow.
Recognizing windows and interface elements is a system interface (Microsoft Active Accessibility) called. If other programs implement this interface, shadows are considered as part of the window, and Snipaste can only count shadows. If you want to automatically remove this extra area, it is necessary to adapt the windows of various programs, which is unrealistic. QQ screenshot can accurately capture the range of the QQ related window, because when it detects that the window is QQ, it automatically subtracts the outer circle. Similarly, when the Snipaste screenshot automatically selects a window, it also adapts to its own texture window, which can automatically subtract the range of the shadow. You can try to select Snipaste's texture window with QQ screenshots, and you will find that it is selected one more circle, which is the principle.
The code editor has syntax highlighting code. After copying it, there is no syntax highlighting.
This is the code you copied without HTML formatting.
If you need this feature, use a code editor with HTML copy. It is recommended to use Visual Studio, install the Prodoctivity Power Tools plug-in, and then turn on the "HTML Copy" function, so that the pictures posted are the same as the editor rendering.
