Copy to clip board

Postby Gary Puckett » Wed, Jun 24 2009, 7:54AM

As I have told in the past, the camera feature does not work for me. So I thought I would try the copy to clipboard well that doesn't work either, unless I am doing something wrong.

I have a cabinet in the cabinet editor high light it go to the file tab and click copy. Then go to my desk top right click and the paste function does not show up.

Gary -- Do a PRINT SCREEN and then open Irfanview and PASTE. Then save as a jpeg and you can crop or highlight or do whatever you want with it.

Gary,

Open Irfanview
Go to Options then Capture/Screen shot
In the dialog box this opens select the Foreground Window Radio Button
Uncheck Include Mouse Cursor
Select the Save Captured Image as file
Choose jpg for your Save As type
Click the Browse Button and select a directory for your image to save to
Click Start
Now with your image on the screen press the ctr and F11 Keys to save the image
As long as this is running you can continue to press the hot keys and save images.

You will still have to crop the pictures manually.

I think this should work even on Vista.
Hopefully with Version 6 you won't have this problem anymore.

Wally,

We have given Gary such a hard time about Vista that it just isn't fun anymore. :D
