Thanks Arlen

I guess my real question there a screen
capture utility that will capture in WMF or EMF
(aparently "extended" form of WMF) formats? I write this its dawning on me that perhaps
if its hard for a utility to convert a bitmap to
WMF that it might be just as hard to screen capture
in WMF...
