Bug Description

The keyboard shortcut to take a screenshot (Prt Scrn and ALT+Prt Scrn) is missing from the keyboard shortcut wallpaper.

We should add this common shortcut to the list.

Contact Rosie for the visual design to make sure we get the layout correct before implementing this change

What do I need to add to remove this bug from the incomplete status?

I can explain, just from having seen this process before. This isn't the more common kind of Incomplete, where you need to provide more info.

This question is marked for Unity design review. That's the 'Ayatana Design' component of the bug (which still has the original name of the project that led to Unity). Most any question about the UI look and behavior will go through this process.

The bug's state in Ayatana Design gets used to reflect where we are with the question "Do we want Unity to do this?" That's still at New; it hasn't been looked at yet. The 'Unity' component of the bug is Incomplete while waiting for that decision.

Hope that clarifies a little. Thanks.

Well explained, thank you Edward!

Yes, we definitely want to add that hotkey to the help overlay, so if
you have permission to approve the design task on this, go ahead and do
so. I'm writing this offline or would do it myself.

Thanks,
Mark

Ok, it let me do so. And, thanks, sabdfl. ;)

It could be good to automate some 'awaiting design review' message, on these incompletes. Maybe I can make a launchpad feature request about that.
