Description

I sometimes want to take a couple of screenshots in reasonably rapid succession. But ever since https://github.com/scummvm/scummvm/commit/df1341ae6ad1f54bf892269118270f6b0c88a50a each screenshot can now contain the OSD message from a previous screenshot.

Would it be reasonable to clear the OSD message before taking the screenshot? Of course, that's no good if you actually want a screenshot that includes the OSD message, but...

sev added the disable_saved_screenshot_osd config option so maybe this could be closed?

Maybe, but it's not easily discoverable. I think you have to manually edit the ScummVM config file to set it? That's why I thought it would have been nice if it would clear the OSD message - or at least OSD messages about screenshots - automatically.

But I don't know if there even is a function to immediately remove the OSD message at the moment. It seems to be handled differently in different backends.
