Ever since I updated to Skype 22.214.171.124, I can no longer find a single button to click on to take a video snapshot in the call window.
The only buttons that show up in the call window are Hide Contacts, Hide IM, Mute Your Microphone, Add particpants send files and more, End Call, Call Quality Information, and Screen options for this call.
If I want to take a video snapshot, now the only way I can find to do this is through the menu: Call > Video > Video Snapshot (requiring two hovers and one click, which takes a lot of time and meanwhile blocks my view of the caller's video because the menus are so large).
Am I missing something? Is there any way to reactivate having a single, easy-to-find, one-click button (or keyboard shortcut) to quickly and unobtrusively take a video snapshot?
Please refer to the screenshot below. just click the "+" button, then select Take a Picture to take a snapshot.
the menu pops up in the middle of the video - right over the other caller's face
this is one of several similar changes to the worse. (further, the "check yours speakers" warning also pops up right over the remote video).
you may reduce this nuisance by resizing the video window to maximal height. so the menu will pop up into the wasted space below the callers image.
srsly...the worst thing ever happened after installing this new version...well i hv movd back to the older version.jus coz of this reason that the snapshot button is no more on the screen..n atleast u skype R&D guys..plz atleast put a keyboard shortcut..but btr will be that u guys put back the button on screen itslf...
do fix it soon..
Really hope Skype could fix this, I loved the Snapshot Button so much... I am now keep updating to see whether there is any change, now I have 126.96.36.199 still not there, not even a hotkey... planning to use the version earlier than 188.8.131.52... sad....
