Naming Capture files during edit phase

Naming Capture files during edit phase

Is there a way to name screenshots in Capture *while editing*? 

 

I use the keyboard shortcut to start a screen cap & have the markup window open automatically after I capture. I'm very happy with the editing tools and the ability to save & copy link or image -- but there's no way to give it a name other than date/time.

 

I see the option to go into the app that shows recent caps & click the pencil to rename there -- but that's a whole separate window to go find. And if I've taken several similar screenshots in a row, the thumbnail is too small for me to see the differences & know I'm renaming the files accurately.

As of a couple months ago, you can hover over the file name shown at the top of the screenshot markup window, and a pencil icon will appear that lets you edit the file name from within the screenshot markup window 🙂

Ah ha! Capture was showing last month's release notes but hadn't actually updated. One manual download & install later, I'm on v. 98 and I get the pencil on hover. Thanks!
