Cool tip. Thanks. Learned something new with that one. I can see how it would be useful. :-)

Someone mentioned Alt + PrintScreen as an alternative. In the application I'm documenting, this doesn't always work, so we end up having to crop most of our grabs. Also, if we take a grab with Alt + PrintScreen and try to use the graphic to paste over an existing SHG file in RoboHelp, we sometimes get artifacts, or bizarre color changes. It's not the color settings, we've checked.
