suggestion: open the screen capture dialog in last location

Hi,

Apologies if you have another place that you prefer to take suggestions, I looked but could not find one. It would be most helpful, especially to those with multiple monitors, if you would open the screen capture dialog in the last place it was located. It is no fun having to drag it to other monitor every time I want to use it.

Thanks for considering this,

Bob

Hi Bob,

The capture tool always opens in the screen in which HelpXplain (or Help+Manual) is currently located. The host program always hides itself when you start, so it doesn't get in the way. If you're going to do multiple captures it's easier to have the program in the screen that you're going to use for capture. I know that may be a little less practical if you're working in multiple screens, but unfortunately that's the way it is at the moment.
