How to Capture a Window
You start the Help Capture from the menu in the tray (bottom-right position
of the screen), and select the type of result you want:
'Generate Document, Drag Drop Captured Items, etcetera'. (This is somewhat different from other capture programs. )
- Click on the Help Capture icon in Windows System Tray - or use
Help Capture in Windows System Tray
The Help Capture menu pops up.
Help Capture menu
- Select the type of result you want, e.g. Generate Document.
A border appears above the window where the mouse cursor currently is
- Move cursor to indicate initial capture
Move it to a window area that closest corresponds to the area you want to
Drag right red border to change captured area
- (Optional) Drag borders: refine area you want to
Hover above the border you want to drag so that the mouse icon appearance
changes to a drag arrow . Now drag the border to where
it seems fit. You can change all borders this way. For example, hovering above
the Font combo box would select that area (control window) only. If you want to
include a description of Font Size, you can drag the right red border so
it gets included.
- To finish, press the [PrtScn] button on your
keyboard to capture selected area
or press [Esc] to abort capture.
The selected result (Generate Document or ...) appears.
Don't show this again
This dialog appears every time you do a capture until you check the "Don't
show this again" checkbox.
: Other Capture programs let you
select a type of area, because they only know one type of result, a screen
