I'm using MadCap Flare 8.

I was preparing to change the colors used in an element of my HTML5 help project.
I wanted to remember the current settings, in case my revision looked even worse than I fear it will.

So, I took a screen capture.

Snipping tool caught the area in which I was interested, but the content of the Skin > Styles > Styles list, and the content of the Properties pane for the selected style were recorded as blank whiteness. Same if I use [Ctrl] [Alt] [Prtsc].

Is that Windows 7, or is it maybe .NET Framework?

What's a good, all-round screen-cap utility that will reliably capture this stuff?
