Making screenshots

Polypane lets you make screenshots of all your panes together, the visible viewports or of entire pages.

All panes

Click the camera icon ( ) in the address bar or press cmd/ctrl p to create a screenshot of all your panes. Screenshots are generated off-screen, so you can continue to use Polypane while a screenshot is generated in the background. A notification will let you know that it's generating a new screenshot, and a popup will let you save it to your file system.

Viewport and full page screenshots

In each pane header you will also find a camera icon ( ). If you click it two options will appear: one for full page and one for the viewport.

Viewport will create a screenshot for what you see in the current pane, scroll position included, whereas full page will create a screenshot of the entire length of the page. These screenshots are also generated off-screen, so you can continue to use Polypane while a screenshot is generated in the background. Full page screenshot are generally much better than other browsers.

Saved screenshots will show the url and pane name in the file name, as well as a timestamp.
