Worked: (optional)

When I try to export a snapshot preview for editing in an aplication like photoshop it gives the error "Operator bpy.ops.paint.image_from_view.poll() expected a view3d region". I may be doing something wrong, but in 2.79 I didn't got this message, worked like a charm; Here is the video explaining the issue:

Drop an object in the scene, go to paint mode; in the brush settings go to External rollout and press Quick Edit to send it to photoshop; returns an error message;

This seems to be a remnant of when the toolbar were tied to the 3D view. The quick edit operation still expects that it should be called from the 3D view region.

This is a duplicate, it's since been worked around (uses largest 3D view). Although this should really use the 3D view still since its currently guessing.
