It will be nice to have the ability to customize keyboard shortcuts, and for each shortcut choose :

- if the screenshot should be saved
- if the screenshot should be copied to clipboard
- or both

And choose capture mode (fullscreen, rectangle, etc...)

You can do so by adding custom keyboard shortcuts in the system setting which run spectacle with flags:

-c to add it to clipboard
-f somefile.jpg to save it.

Thanks for the info about doing a custom shortcut with flags, that works great.

Would be ideal to have this as a simple toggle in Spectacle settings, seems much more user friendly that way.

The capture mode can be selected; there are separate keyboard shortcuts configurable (from Spectacle -> *Configure* -> *Shortcuts* pane) for fullscreen, active window, ...

That doesn't get you the specific options for that kind of screenshot, though.
