Bug Description

The gnome-screenshot utility should have a button to make a new screenshot.

Background: if I want to make an image of a single window (happens quite often), I can't use the "Print Screen" button, but have to start the screenshot app via Applications -> Accessories -> Make Screenshot ; and even then I only have "one shot": if the created screenshot doesn't look good, I have to start the screenshot app _again_! That's very unhandy. If there would be a button like "Make another screenshot" that would be easier; and also I could launch the app with the "Print Screen" button and then ignore the created fullscreen-shot and hit "New shot" and select the desired options.

You can make a screenshot of only the currently active window with «Alt + Impr Pant».

Thanks for the hint! Alt + PrintScreen seems to solve all use cases described. It might still be nice to have a "New shot" button, but it's less important now with this trick :-)
