if you go to the ~/.config/TheHive directory, I think you can find a HotShot.conf and a HotShots.conf. The previous preferences files hasn't the right name and was change. I completely forgot about this change but I think this is your problem.

2,arrow with line
3,arrow with dotted curved line

Hotshot isn't a real vector editor, just an annotation editor, so I don't want to support all the inkscape features ...

P.S.: your snapshot is a bit unreadable ...

i dont expect hotshots to be a vector editor. but an arrow with curved line is a common need, at least for me.

for example, i open editor and start to add annotations, i add a simple straight line into it, and then i try to undo this just added line by clicking ctrl+z. but this does work right now.

i really like this qt-app, its better than ksnapshot.

hotshots:2.1.0
os:openSUSE 13.1
kde:4.11.5
after an image having been uploaded to canardpc, i expect the uploaded image's url is automatically copied into clipboard, but it doesn't. i have already checked copy uploaded file url to clipboard in preferences -> network.
if i check launch default internet browser when done, it does open it.

hotshots version:2.1.0
i found the following uploaders freeimagehosting,imgur, imageshack can not work, the logs are here:

CanardPC works.
it seems all these online image hosting do not allow anonymous upload. please support authoriszed uploading with username and password.
and it's better if user can add any favorite image host.

The problem is that free services change their parameters occasionally, and it's very painful to follow each services. Use services with credential is a bit more complicated but it's in the todo list ...

Disregard my post, I found the problem, it was a broken symlink in X11

Just a note to let you know that the last three builds I've done, the hotshots.desktop is in /usr/share/application, that should be applications, it's only that I install over the top of old builds why I didn't notice.

Thank you for feedback. The problem is in the .pro file and is not new, I've updated the src archive in SF.
