Grabbing Only A Part of the Window

Sometimes it makes sense only to grab a certain area of a window. To do so you can set up crop marks from each edge. By clicking on the action gear button you will get a preview of the grabbed window. The red border shows the area to grab. You can drag the red handles to only get a certain area of the window. At the top there are three buttons to control the zoom stage of the preview. Zoom in to have pixel-accurate control.
