I have three suggestions (not that I'm certain any of them will

1. I assume from your mention of SnagIt that you are running this on
Windows. If you can run the services via telnet or some other service
in a command (DOS) window, you can redirect the output to a text
file. <command> > <text file> works as well in windows as it does in
a UNIX shell. For example, I often use

C:\> dir /s producthelp > helpdir.txt

to get a text file listing of the entire help directory.

2. Failing that, perhaps does the FullShot screen capture utility
have better text capture capabilities? Their trial version is fully
functional, so you can try it out.

3. Just click in the terminal window and highlight some text to pause
the scrolling. Then select all the text and Ctrl-C. Painful, but

Good luck,

Hi, guys...I'm looking at a series of interfaces that doesn't have
functionality. They are custom Computer Management consoles for
running on a range of servers, similar to what you'd find by right
My Computer -> Manage -> Services and Applications -> Services, but
something called Cluster Administrator.

I want to capture the list of services for inclusion into tables as
text and
I'd rather not handle each one individually, since there are "many".

I tried using Snag-It's text capture, but since Cluster Administrator
doesn't allow selecting more than one, I only get a line at a time.

I'm looking for ideas on how I can capture all the lines at once when
application doesn't have print functionality, and to make matters
worse, I'm
connecting to the servers using Terminal Client.

Any ideas?
