  1. Any chance you could add the iterator value as a Variable so we can define the entire file name ex: File-Name-$i or something.

  3. can you add retina menubar icon please? love this app thank you!

  4. Any chance you could have option in preference to 1. no dialog box to confirm when you click the discard button instead close the window 2. when you click save, it should auto save to the path you have chosen in preference and close the window.

  5. The only feature this is missing is copying to the clipboard. Such a pain in the ass to drag and drop my screenshot from the desktop into an email/messenger/word/etc etc. Once a screenshot is taken I should be able to just paste it Cmd+V like the snipping tool does on windows.

    Also, disabling the preview would be nice. Tired of closing it every time.

  6. +1 please automatic copy to clipboard after capture, it's essential or at least desirable as an option in preferences, eliminating need to "Edit in Preview" and CMD+C :)

    Also programmable shortcuts to save time would be a huge benefit.

    I understand now the Discard message, since captures are automatically saved this is a way to delete the file there after.
    When pressing ESC it closes the preview nicely, perhaps automatic saving could be a preference setting.

    Many thanks for releasing it FREE!
