Bug Description

There's already a decent xfce4-screenshooter for fast screenshots sharing and already two keyboard shortcuts for it in the default settings, namely:

xfce4-screenshooter -f | PrtScn
xfce4-screenshooter -w | Alt+PrtScn

There's an often scenario (I suppose, haven't done a real research) when one needs to capture a screenshot of a selected region of a screen. And xfce4-screenshooter already has that option: xfce4-screenshooter -r.

And adding it as

xfce4-screenshooter -r | Shift+PrtScn

worked like a bliss.

Why not add this as a default setting into the package?

Concerning the selection of Shift+PrtScn keys for the shortcut:

1. It's intuitive - first thing I did - I tried this combination - other screenshotting tools I used have similar shortcuts for this behavior
2. It's not in conflict with any other keyboard shortcut
3. People recommend this shortcut on askubuntu: https://askubuntu.com/questions/170163/how-do-i-set-a-shortcut-to-screenshot-a-selected-area

Thank you.

Required section, just in case:

Description: Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS
Release: 18.04

  Installed: 18.04.6
  Candidate: 18.04.6
  Version table:
 *** 18.04.6 500

        500 http://ru.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic/universe i386 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

I expect: Shift+PrtScn on a default installation runs screenshooter in "capture region" mode
What happened instead: nothing
