Hello,

whith the old KDE4 screenshot utility (ksnapshot) you could press the "print" key, switch to your program and hit it again and another time. When you was done screen shooting you could care for the pictures. You never needed to save one image first in order to do another screenshot.
Now with the new spectacle (KDE5 screenshot utility) you can not, right? You have to handle (save/edit) one screenshot first before you can take the next screenshot.
Is there a setting somewhere that allows to have more than one instance running? Maybe there is a checkbox I don't know about…

thanks in advance

PS: Does something like a KDE4-emulator exist? ;)

I use for my i3wm environment the following command

Code:
scrot '%d-%m-%Y_%H:%M:%S_screenshot.png' -e 'mv $f ~/Screenshots/'


example of my i3 config

Code:
grep scrot .i3/config
bindsym Print exec "scrot '%d-%m-%Y_%H:%M:%S_screenshot.png' -e 'mv $f ~/Screenshots/'"


Constraints.
------

Only one screenshot per second. I have no idea if there are any smaller time frames for the bash possible? milliseconds or nanoseconds??
There have to be a directory called Screenshots in my home directory which i have created before.
