I used to have this issue also. There is another way which might work for you. A shortcut key is available to grab part of the screen - it's set to Win+w by default, but can be changed in the Hotkeys tab of Options.

What happens if you hold shift as you click the screen area grab button? Does that affect what happens please?

Same thing.

The crosshair vanishes away as soon as I move the mouse.

Later we'll see what Tom has to say about it. In the meantime, here's a little workaround. Instead of the screen area, use the screenshot option. When a new image sticky is created containing a picture of your entire screen, select the portion of the picture you want and choose the command "crop to selection" from the right-click menu of the image sticky. Voila, a sticky containing the screen area you wanted all along.

Hello Cynthia,

This is a nice workaround indeed. Much appreciated. It works!

Just wonder why I did not think about this myself huh

Regards

P.S.: One thing worthy of mention. The crosshair does appear but the screen does not dim (as it should happen ref. Sticky help).
