Copy Excel Selection as a Picture

Want to show someone a chunk of an Excel spreadsheet via email or iChat? You could take a screenshot, but if you want to show just a portion of the Excel window and you don't use a utility like Snapz Pro, you can do this right from within Excel 2008. Make a selection, hold down the Shift key, and choose Copy Picture from the Edit menu. You can select whether the selection will be rendered as though it was shown on screen or as though it was printed. Then just switch to your desired destination and paste.

Hindsight Labs LLC has released Paprika 2.0.3, a small update that fixes the importing of .paprikarecipe files in the recipe manager (see “FunBITS: Paprika Recipe Manager for iPhone, iPad, and Mac,” 14 March 2014). The update also now correctly stores the name setting for an export calendar, makes tweaks to the MMF importer, improves the capability of dragging a subcategory out of its parent category to the top level, and fixes a printing issue when viewing a recipe through the meal planner. ($19.99 new from the Mac App Store, free update, 3.5 MB, 10.8+)
