<< I am one of two tech writers working on software documentation
manuals for a small company. Our dilemma has been quality
screen capture. We have tried several methods. Our software is
cross platform, so we are able to capture using workstations,
PC's or MAC's. The captures are pretty good, but when we bring
them into Framemaker, they get distorted, fuzzy and the text
looks terrible (stairstepped). What are others out there using
to get quality screen capture? >>

This may be off-the-mark, but I capture from mainframe to PC and I have
found that if I alt-enter to make the mainframe screen into a window and
use the edit/mark function (available when you double-click on the hyphen
in the upper-left corner of the window), the pasted version is as clear as
the original -- and you can change the font to suit your documentation

Good luck...
