Re: Screenshot links no longer working since installing Mojave

I have just tried uninstalling and re-installing the desktop app. It has not resolved the problem: my screenshots save to the dropbox folder, but it no longer copies the URL by default, I have to go to the folder, find my last screenshot, right click and copy the URL.

Hey, could you please try and set the screencapture setting to Save to Desktop, and see if that does the trick?

Hmmmm, so now I do get the screenshot URL copied to my clipboard, but I also get an error message that pops up every single time, which I'm not sure is any less annoying :/

This is the error message:

     Your screen shot can’t be saved.

     Cannot write file to intended destination.

Then I have to hit OK, and THEN I can use the screenshot URL.

Glad to hear that worked for you, @rickpoet
 
@Jessica D.20, could you please try rebooting your computer after trying out what I mentioned earlier?

If you have the MacOS screenshot app save the files to desktop, the copying to the specified Dropbox folder works and links are autogenerated. Links seem to be only autogenerated if the file is saved to the desktop and includes "Screen Shot" in the name. "Screen Recording" files do not trigger the behavior.

I've asked Dropbox support on Twitter to look into that.

I'm having the same issue. The screenshots save to Dropbox but it does not add a link to the file to my clipboard. I'm using the latest version of both Dropbox and Mojave.

Saving to desktop actually worked! I must have manually chosen the Dropbox folder to save screenshots. Thanks!

But it still only works for static images, not the screen recordings - due to their different file name prefix.
