Is there any way in 4.6 of taking a screen shot of the current patch or even of the entire screen? or do i need some other program in windows xp to be able to do this?

If you own Jitter you could use jit.desktop: "The jit.desktop object grabs the contents of the computer display, taking a screen shot of whatever lies at the specified screen coordinates and placing that data into a Jitter matrix."

in windows, pressing the print screen key will capture the screen to
the clipboard as an image.

I don’t know of any way without Jitter. It makes sense though, Jitter is the visual add-on for Max.

ok so this is where it gets tricky… i’m running windows xp of a macbook so i don’t have a print-screen button.

And if you’re on a mac you can use the Grab application.

command(apple)-shift-3

but…not sure if that’ll translate into windows-land on your mac (probably not).

I’ve found a good way of doing this. Under start menu in windows, click ‘programs,’ then ‘accessories,’ then ‘accessibility,’ then ‘on-screen keyboard.’ the on-screen keyboard has the ‘psc’ or ‘print-screen’ key.

hey Jay, that’s a great hack, hehe.

I’ve been running autohotkeys in the background as a keyboard conversion
script – will work well for heavier use.
