Snapshot of screen

This is a known bug in LC 6.5.1 and should be fixed soon, the bug report is [ http://quality.runrev.com/show_bug.cgi?id=11654 ].

There is an odd workaround, just set the focus to any field before issuing the 'import snapShot' command and it should work as you expect without pressing enter.

If you don't have any fields available on the card, just use something like…

on mouseUp
   create invisible field "tempField" --WORKAROUND *remove after LC6.5.1 update
   focus on field "tempField" --*
   import snapshot
   delete field "tempField" --*
end mouseUp

It is re-inforced by the fact that the cross-hair cursor is still displayed, though you can't select a new area of the screening by dragging a new rectangle.
