Steve Evanina asked:

Does anyone know the best way to capture UNIX X-Windows screens? The
final output will be via Word 6.0.

We have tried various UNIX programs with little to no success in
transferring them to Windows.

An approach not already mentioned but which I have used successfully in
converting a UNIX/Motif FrameMaker document to Word 6.0 is as follows:

1. Capture the X Windows screen using the FrameMaker capture utility or xwd
so that you have the image in an .xwd file.

2. Use the ImageMagick freeware "convert" command to convert the .xwd
file to a .tif file.

3. Import the .tif file into your Word 6.0 document.

You can ftp ImageMagick from ftp.x.org in the directory
contrib/applications/ImageMagick.
