An excellent way to do screen captures is to run DOS in a window on a
Macintosh (SoftPC or Soft Windows programs, and there are add-in boards that
do this, too). If you have a Macintosh available this is fast and easy.
Command-Shift-3 writes the screen to a PICT file. You can size the DOS
window as you would like. You can then use any number of utilities (I use
GraphicConverter or MacLink)to bring the captured screens back to your DOS
machine (if you need to).

I have used this to generate illustrations for DOS/Windows instructions and
to capture everything from Word Processor to CADD examples.

If this sounds like an answer and you would like more details, please e-mail
me directly.
