Just to be clear, it's not possible to use global hotkeys when combo boxes or
context menus are open, gtk apps grab input devices so xfsettingsd can't
"listen" to the pressed keys. There are exceptions though, for instance
Firefox, it seems to not use the "native" windows for that, so Firefox just
dismisses them when focus is lost.
All in all, this a known limitation that can't be fixed on screenshooter's end.

If you are able to use global hotkeys while a combo box is open in whatever app
you're using, great, just bind a hotkey for "xfce4-screenshooter -f" or
"xfce4-screenshooter -w" and you will get the full screen or active window's
screenshot. The delay option may also be helpful.

Probably Qt apps don't grab input devices ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
