Hi guys it's been a while but I am back in Construct land.

I have been playing around with the canvas snapshot expression and its great, however it does not seem to be able to take a snapshot of a specific area of the canvas.

Lets say I am building an image editor of a sort in Construct. I have some form controls that let the user load some different bits of clipart and arrange them in layers by dragging them around. I would like to be able to take a snapshot of just the area of the canvas where the user has created their masterpiece.

Is this possible out the box?

I ran into this limitation with one of my projects. I got around it by changing the canvas size to match the image size, taking a snapshot, then going back to the normal canvas size.

Hi zatyka, I just had a look and it seems pretty seamless, I will see if I can adapt this technique to my needs!
