>On capturing screen shots:
>For Windows, I used to simply do a PrintScreen (which doesn't really send
it to the printer), open up Paint, and Paste it. This crops off any part of
the image larger than the displayed work area, which was becoming a problem.
>I just found a new utility, called Professional Capture Systems, which
enables a hot-key combination to capture whatever you have it set up to
capture (ie. window, full screen, object, etc.) and print, save to disk,
etc. It also has a DOS capture feature. I am thrilled with this little gem
- it just came in the mail this week.
>It cost me $39.00. The package says it's for Windows 3.x, Windows 95 and
DOS. Granted, it only does the capture, so you will have to save your image
to disk (BMP, PCX, TIFF) and edit elsewhere if you need to modifiy it. DOS
captures saved are PCX only.
