    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. ::looking into print-screen equivalent on mac keyboard::

      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.
