Extra padding around window shots via shots module - Enlightenment 0.24.0
Open, WishlistPublic


With the changes to the shot module, every window now has a padded region included that captures the desktop and any other windows. It would be nice to be able to control that padded region, like to not have it padded at all and just capture the window itself. Or ability to adjust the size, from zero to some other value. I am aware I can crop windows, but that does take extra time. If taking a lot of window shots, it can be cumbersome.

You can see the padding with this example shot, it should just be the window, rather than the padded region plus the window. It is pretty minor, but does make window shots bigger than they were before, and including unwanted or unnecessary stuff.

That previous shot is about twice its normal dimension due to the padding. The padding size seems to be the same regardless of the window size. With this exception, it is smaller on the left than the top/bottom or right. I did not use the crop feature of the shot module, that is just its default padding.

Thank you for your consideration of this issue!
