Screenshot is a used feature by teachers anyway. Another requested feature
is the ability to take a screenshot with the canvas only (probably with a
modifier like alt-shift-1). But the problem with a feature only accessed
by a hot key is the "discoverability".
I don't like using the camera icon to this feature...
