Greetings -- The thread on whole vs. partial screen shots reminded me of
something I did in a manual a while back. For partial shots -- individual
buttons, adjustment bars, and such -- I kept just enough of the surrounding
material to make it easy for the reader to find the main item in an actual
display; then I recolored the surrounding material so it would come out a
fuzzy but readable gray in the hard copy. I kept the main item as close to
the center as possible and made sure it printed out nice and sharp. Took
some doing, but the effect was worth it. Was kinda proud of that.
