Potential Hotkeys Conflict

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. 

For now, Markup Hero doesn’t allow you to modify the hotkeys for screenshots (coming soon, we promise). So the workaround is to change the hotkey for the conflicting application. If you previously had a screenshot tool installed (boo) it’s probably that one. Go to the preferences of the conflicting application and change the hotkeys.

Linux Installation (Beta)
