I want set alt+print as shortcut to capture active window but shorcuts kcm does allow.
Spectacle 17.08.2 on Arch
Sorry, I meant "... does NOT allow".
By the way "Win" key is not available as modifier too. But Kde menus are still activated by this combination
I still have this problem with:
KDE Plasma Version: 5.14.3
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.52.0
Qt Version: 5.11.2

Still a problem in the new KCM, and not fixed with https://phabricator.kde.org/D29292. Other shortcuts with Alt as the only modifier key seem to work, but Alt+Print does not.
Maybe an issue with KKeySequence's focus?
That's probably because alt+print is mapped as sysrq
Perhaps we should disallow setting that shortcut in the KCM, then?
Disallow? I mean it is currently not possible
So I guess we just need some kind of notification so the user knows why it's not allowed, or else they think it's a bug.

I just had a look again and I get after releasing one of they key a delayed KeyPress and KeyRelease event with Key=SysRq as nativeVirtualKey.
So it might be possible to show a warning or info box, just have to think about the best way to do this.

Is there any way this can be made to work? Loving KDE and trying to port over my "Windows shortcut instincts" and really this is the only thing I couldn't replicate near perfectly!
Is the reason that it's mapped to sysrq as one comment mentions? (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magic_SysRq_key)
PS: WinKey+PrintScreen at least is a close workaround and no longer opens the KDE menu when used for it.
PPS: If this bug matters to you, please VOTE for it!
Is there maybe a way to manually edit the shortcut from Alt+SysReq to Alt+Print in Spectacle? For me, it looks like just an issue of the shortcut recorder, and maybe if it's written correct, it will work? Please suggest where this shortcut is saved to try to edit it manually.
