Hello

Is there a tool in Word that allows a 'picture' of a selected part of a page

to be taken, which then allows it to be pasted into another document (e.g.

Excel or Powerpoint)?

Something similar to the 'snapshot' tool in Adobe?

Regards

    • Use the PrtScn button on your keyboard. Or for more capability, get Snagit

      from www.techsmith.com.

      Hope this helps.

    • You can use the poor man's screen capture (PrintScreen or Alt+PrintScreen),

      which copies the screen (or active window) to the Clipboard, whence you can

      paste it into Windows Paint or another graphics editor. Or you can select

      part of the page and Copy, then Paste Special as Picture. For anything more

      sophisticated, you will need a dedicated screen capture application such as

      SnagIt (www.techsmith.com), which I highly recommend.
