To save the area to the clipboard, I have the default key combination Shift+Ctrl+Printscreen. Then I cut the area, but there is nothing in the clipboard (check via Ctrl+V). It happened a week ago.

I'm afraid we broke that in the last Gala release when we tried to remove a lag / freeze when making screenshots (See: PR).
We've solved the issue and it should be fixed with the next release of Gala.

Issue: https://github.com/elementary/gala/issues/474
Fix: https://github.com/elementary/gala/pull/481

Update: A new version of Gala was released which should include the fix:
Version: 0.3.2~r690+pkg45~ubuntu5.0.1
On: 2019-03-05

  • Hi. I still have this issue with 0.3.2~r698+pkg45~ubuntu5.0.1 May 24, 2019 at 6:18
