copy frame to clipboard

Sometimes if all I want to do is to capture a drop down, I do a video simply for the ability to capture a window.

Give me the ability to just copy the frame.  Two options I can see
  1. Just select the frame in the canvas, and select "Copy"--which is currently there but is a no-op when pasting into an email
  2. Add it as an option on the "Share" menu

If you have the program, SnagIt has the ability to capture only the drop down. You can also catch images with a time delay.

Ahh, yes-that is true--but, I was trying to document a suggestion IN Snagit itself, so I couldn't do it.  
love Snagit, in a software kind of a way.

Ah!  Yes, that is a bit circular.  Nice solution!!!

Bruce, thanks for your suggestion.

To capture Snagit with Snagit, there's a preference for "Hide Snagit while capturing" on the capture tab. You can uncheck this and Snagit will remain visible during the capture. https://support.techsmith.com/hc/en-u...

Another option, not as automatic, is SnippingTool.  On my system (Win 10 pro 64-bit) it is located in folder C:/Windows/System32/.  If what you want is in a drop down, use the Delay menu in SnippingTool.

For capturing many images (I capture to Word) SnagIt is great!
