Screenshots in Layout Editor only of Design view?

Posted by: admin November 1, 2017 Leave a comment


When in the Layout Editor of Android Studio 2.3.3, I can take screenshots of the Design view, but neither of the Blueprint view nor of both views simultaneously.

This behavior is independent from my selection of the Show Design, Show Blueprint, Show Design + Blueprint buttons. When Show Blueprint is selected and I take a screenshot by right click on the Blueprint view and Save Screenshot, I will still get a screenshot of the Design view.

Since on SO single screenshots with both views are abounding, I am led to believe that this is a function inherent to Android Studio. How can I, too, take screenshots of both views simultaneously, relying solely on tools built into Android Studio?
