Good functionality; mediocre usability and support options

This application comes closed to the Windows Snipping Tool from Microsoft Windows that I have found so far. The preferences screen is a little confusing, and there are some rough edges when using it But for my main use case — copying aerbitrary part sof my screen to my clipboard — it’s wonderful.

I tried to contact support to give feedback, but the feedback is lined to having a QQ Mail account, which I don’t have (and don’t want to sign up for). My feedback would have been:

• Include x-axis and y-axis (perhaps an option) so that when I'm selecting a rectangular area around an odd shape (e.g. a circle), I can easily tell where to place my corners by where the axes extend across the screen.

• Alternatively, if there were a way (perhaps a modifier key) that after placing my original selection, I could adjust the edges before the capture is taken. That way I could slightly adjust the edges to be just how I want.

• Alternatively, if there was a way to crop a snip after it's been capture but before it's saved (to clipboard or file), then I could just snip a larger area and them crop it down after it's captured.

good but missing one click entire screen shot

it’s a good tool, small, light and easy to use. I have two problem with this tool. One is this app just stopped open one day, don’t know what happen, still have icon on my computer but actually, app is no longer exist. go to apple store install again fix the problem. just hope this issue won’t happen again. Another problem is this snip no longer have entire screen shot. I would like to caputure entire screen with one click to save thime, rather than drag it to select the box when I don’t need too. Please add that feature back. It is avaliable before with older version still love to have it with this one.

Almost as good as the one on my office (windows) laptop

I wanted a clipping tool on my MacBook like the one on my office pc. I searched around and this one got the most favorable reviews. The reason I gave it 4 stars insteat of 5 have already been mentioned here but I’ll mention them again. The tool is not intuitive. You can’t have your choice of download site and the biggest one for me is there are no border lines being drawn as you drag the pointer from one corner to the other corner of what you want to snip.
