Hi, I figured out how to save a screenshot and everything. But when saving the screenshot it doesn't correctly save, position-wise how I want it to. I used a capx from another topic theirs worked but my isn't and I'm wondering why.
Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.

I have been trying to set the size of the image when saving. I don't know if you download the capx from the other topic I linked at the start of my post. That's why it might look confusing on what I was trying to do
I'm assuming the Paster works would it be
Paster >> Paste object(if so what object)
or something else?
You can change Paster resolution (Set Resolution action), then paste objects or layers on it, then save Paster image. It will be saved with selected resolution.
Your original code doesn't need Paster at all. You use System action "Take Snapshot", which copies the entire window. That's why you have to resize and scroll it first.. It's messy and difficult. Much easier to make a snapshot of the area with Paster.
