Two regressions that I've spotted running with latest KSG from master 

1/ as far as I can tell, the window is non resizable. KSnapshot is, and 
resizing the window ends up resizing the screenshot in it, which I find 
really useful.
2/ once you have selected Active Window + Take a new snapshot, the 
application waits for you to "click" somewhere, but as far as I can 
tell, the window on which you click does not matter, what you get in the 
screenshot is the window that was active *before* you click on "take a 
new snapshot".
This is very impractical: if you want to change active window you need 
first to select it (away from the ksg window, which is in fact the 
active one (hum: does that mean that the button is actually ill-named) ? 
, select an "active" window, then click back on kscreengenie (making 
this window the active one), then take a new snapshot.

Ksnapshot behaves differently: you select "take a new snapshot", you 
click on a window, the window becomes "active" and this is the one that 
gets a screenshot.

I have not tested how it works when you use a "delay".

Best regards,
