Extend Mac OS X's Screenshots

Mac OS X has a variety of built in screenshot methods. Here's a look at a few that offer more versatility than the basic full-screen capture (Command-Shift-3):

• Press Command-Shift-4 and you'll get a crosshair cursor with which you can drag to select and capture a certain area of the screen.

• Press Command-Shift-4-Space to select the entire window that the cursor is over, clicking on the window will then capture it. The resulting screenshot will even get a nice drop shadow.

• Hold down the Space bar after dragging out a selection window to move your selection rectangle around on the screen.

• Hold down Shift after dragging out a selection to constrain the selection in either horizontal or vertical orientation, depending on the direction of your drag.

• Hold down Option after dragging out a selection to expand the selection window around a center point.

User Group 7.1 Pricing

Send Article to a Friend

All the hubbub about Apple charging for System 7.1 this fall actually did some good. Roger Heinen, Apple Senior Vice President and General Manager, announced that Apple is giving user group members a special promotional price on System 7.1 until 01-Feb-93. To take advantage of the 20% price reduction (that makes the price $27.95 instead of $34.95) you must:

  • Call 800/769-APPLE before 01-Feb-93.

  • Identify yourself as a user group member.

  • Provide the person chained to the telephone with the name of your registered Apple User Group.

  • And finally, provide mailing address and payment information.
