Capturing Farm Works Screens (for Icons)

Search Discussion Boards
There is no way within Farm Works to print out your icons. However, Windows provides you with a way to "capture" what is being displayed on your computer screen. You can then change and/or print the image from the screen. To do this:

1. Get a group of icons displayed on the screen.
2. Hold down the "Alt" and "Print Screen" keys on your keyboard. This will "capture" whatever is displayed on the screen.
3. Run a program such as "Paint" or "Photo Shop" (Paint is included with Windows).
4. Inside that program go to the Edit menu and choose the option to "Paste".
5. You will now have your Farm Works screen displayed.
6. You can use the different functions of the program (such as Paint) to cut away any parts of the picture that you may not want (in this case you could cut out everything but the icons).
7. You can also Print what is displayed (in Paint you can choose Print from the File menu).

You can repeat these steps as necessary to print out all of your icons.

These procedures can be followed for any type of Farm Works Screen. I've seen a number of users follow these steps to save their maps in a Bitmap format so that they can use them in their letterhead in their favorite word processors.

I hope this helps!
