Potential Hotkeys Conflict (Keyboard Shortcut Settings)

In rare cases you may have another program installed that uses the same hotkeys as Markup Hero. If this occurs you will find that taking screenshots doesn’t work quite right. Markup Hero allows you to modify the hotkeys for screenshots, just click the "Settings" button to set your preferred keyboard shortcuts. Alternatively, go to the preferences of the conflicting application and change the hotkeys there.

Linux Installation (Beta)

Instructions vary on the distro, please message support if you need help.
