    I had some fabulous stats yesterday and am trying to take a screencap, but Shift, Print Screen doesn’t actually do anything much. I can’t just paste that into Paint; it doesn’t show up as saved. I can’t paste into Word either. I can save it as a PDF, but the actual GRAPH is missing, which sucks, because it looks like a skyscraper on a prairie. Mere numbers don’t have that impact. Would this have something to do with me running Adblock Plus? I can see the graph fine on the page, but it just won’t show in the PDF. Anyone know a workaround? Any staff care to make a screencap for me? Halp!

    I typically just hit print screen (without shift) and then open paint or something with a new blank document and then hit ctrl-v. It’s been a while since I mucked with it on Windows.

    If I hit it without hitting Shift, I just get Print. I print to PDF and get everything except the graph. It’s weird.

    It might have something to do with the fact that the graph is displayed by Flash. (That shouldn’t be a problem, but who knows).

    For the record, on a Mac: command-shift-4, then click and drag over the area you want. It’ll save a png file to your desktop.

    Thanks, I’m going to bookmark this thread, because it’s a handy tool I basically can’t use at all right now.

    I forgot to mention that Jing will capture the graph.

    Works on Mac & Windows
