  1. Windows Ink Snip n Sketch hangs after using it successfully


    First of all, great feature, much better than snipping tool in my opinion.

    But after using it, I cannot seem to close the window it creates. Is this a known bug/issue?

    :)

  2. Snip and sketch does not save snips or sketches.

    What about Win+w (Ink Workspace); is it still there? You might get a different symptom from trying to save a "Screen Sketch" made that way. Oh. Apparently "Snip and sketch" is just a new name for that? If so, you don't need to save anything, just
    use the Resume button.

    That would be new too. No sign that Ink Workspace is installable in 1803.

    FYI

  4. Windows Ink Snip n Sketch hangs after using it successfully

    Snip and Sketch Awkward

    Use Windows+shift+s to launch Snip and Sketch. Can snip a screenshot.

    Now the problem is this: after snipping the screen shot, it does not automatically appear in the Snip and Sketch app. So I open Snip and Sketch and there's nothing on it.

    So I have choose 'new' and snip the screen yet again.

    I recall using this once and taking a screenshot and voila! Snip and Sketch appeared with the screen shot duly in the app's workspace, ready for annotations and saving etc. This facility has disappeared. I have re-set it according to instructions, and even
    reinstalled it - yet the problem persists.

    Would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks
