|Summary||0004069: Usability of "Annotation Screenshot"|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
Agreed. We decided at one point to use "screenshot" to refer to images and "sceneviews" to be bookmarks in the mrml scene since "snapshot" was ambiguous.
Providing another way to save images of the screen to files would be nice, since the current Annotation related screenshot feature has been reported to be nonintuitive.
Yes, there was a node name change a while back and I tried to change all of the snapshot wording to screenshot - I'll do another pass.
The way the screenshots are set up to be saved came out of Ron's push to have all the saving of data get consolidated to the save data dialog, the individual modules were providing too many places where you had to save different types of data individually. The set directory for all screenshots functionality is in the save data dialog already.
I like the idea of moving the screenshots out of Annotations, but they also need to be seriously updated to the new customisable layout that Slicer now provides (you can't for example take a screenshot of a second 3D window, of charts, or of more than the RGB slices).
