Screenshot Tool: ability to add a note!


The screenshot tool is nifty, and I'd use it all the time if I could also add a small text blub that gets posted to the case. Ooooh, that'd be schweet.

Better yet, a callout on the image itself.

If you can afford $39.95, you can use SnagIt as your FogBugz screen captures,

Using my free little mashup widget,

Basically my widget uses SnagIt's COM server to capture the image and then display the capture in SnagIt's editor for annotation. When you are done annotating, my widget sends the annotated capture to FogBugz.

To address Ken's original post, I guess I'm confused - when you post a screenshot to FogBugz, you can add a text note to the case at the same time.  That won't let you add annotations to the image itself as Andy and John are suggesting, but I'm not sure I understand the original request.

Unless I have an outdated version (I downloaded it from my FB 6.0.39 installation), I see no place to attach a note with the FB Snapshot tool! Check out a screen shot of the screen shot tool:

Am I missing something?

Oh, what I want to do is add a snapshot to a case, and an entry as well, such as,

"As you can see from the screenshot, the cat on the upper-left hand corner is blue. It needs to be red after pressing the button."

Add that as a BugEvent entry.

Press "Send to FogBugz" and a case screen will come up allowing you to add your bug event note.
