@jan-ivar Am not certain what the issue, hesitancy and/or reluctance is with adding a constraint which provides a means to capture only part of a screen that will be shared? That is, if am gathering the hesitancy to add this constraint correctly from the responses so far in this issue.

This feature request is consistent with screen capture (still image and live stream) programs, and in fact, consistent with the concept of setting `width`, `height` and `resizeMode`. This proposal simply asks requests to further refine the screen to be captured.

It is reasonable to have the ability to select only part of a screen both by a selection tool to physically outline the portions of the screen to be captured and by setting `sx`, `sy`, `sWidth`, `sHeigh`t constraints.

Why should such functionality not be specified?
