Cut part of FH screen image

Post by TMG_refugee » 27 Oct 2020 16:20

This topic has probably been addressed before but I did not find any reference in the help or this forum.

When I have an issue that I would like to post to this forum it would be nice if I could cut/copy a portion of the FH screen to use to illustrate my problem.

I am using FH v 6.2.7 and windows 10 but so far my attempts at cutting a portion of an FH screen have not been successful.

Any help would be appreciated.

I've moved this to the Web Site Usage Forum that is more appropriate and in its Forum Usage Guide refers to the link below...
Yes, see info:forums#posting_topics|> Posting Topics.
You use one of the screengrab tools such as Windows 10 built-in Snip & Sketch or the Snipping Tool.
It is possible to add highlights, etc, and then save as a PNG or JPG file, etc.
They can be added as Attachments via the tab at the bottom of the Forum text box.

Mike that worked perfectly.

Windows key + Shift + S lets me highlight what I want to cut and then I can paste it to where ever.

Thank you for the suggestion
