I've noticed similar problems attempting to capture pulldown menus using
FrameMaker's built-in capture routine. Try running a shell script
which will capture everything on the display at a given moment.

The following script has worked for me. The script (ras_dump) uses the
SunOS command "screendump." ras_dump will only grab the display
from the does not work on X-terminals.

Good luck!

#ras_dump script
#Works on most suns-output file in sun rasterfile format-Frame readable
#Grabs entire screen from console-does not work on X-terminals
#Command line syntax: ras_dump "output_filename"
sleep 10 #"10" = 10 second delay, change to suit
echo ^G #bell rings once
screendump -c > $1.ras
echo ^G^G # bell rings twice when filecapture is complete
echo The rasterfile file has been created
