crosshair appears on import -screen

User does

Code: Select all

$ import -pause 11 -screen /tmp/file.jpg
A crosshair appears and the user is encouraged to draw a box just as if he used

Code: Select all

$ import -pause 11 /tmp/file.jpg
Alas all that is not going to affect the output. So please have no crosshair appear, etc.

Have you checked with the latest release

Seems like import does not work at all on Mac (Sierra) with XQuartz. The following command creates a totally black image:


Code: Select all

magick import -window root screen.png
same on IM

Code: Select all

import -window root screen.png
