Description Arfrever Frehtes Taifersar Arahesis 2018-05-21 05:12:44 UTC
When "Include mouse pointer" is used with "Rectangular Region" capture mode, then location and appearance of mouse pointer are captured at the time of pressing Enter, but the reasonable behavior would be to capture these data at the time of capturing other part of screenshot.

Thanks for the report. The problem is already being worked on in https://phabricator.kde.org/D12626 (might take a while, though).

Port QML Rectangle cropper to QWidget + QPainter

1. Port QML canvas based screenshot cropper to QWidget + QPainter based cropper
2. Fix minor bugs with cropper while porting, like system font not being set for size indicator
3. "Include mouse pointer" setting now blends the cursor into the screenshot right away, letting the user see it while cropping, rather than blending it in after cropping

Related: bug 374009

Test Plan: Compare with original cropper and check if I missed something
