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.

 
 

Anti-Virus Help

Send Article to a Friend

An alert reader suggested this article, and I think it's an excellent way for the Macintosh community to pay back someone who has devoted much time and effort to it. Here's the situation. Jeff Shulman of Shulman Software and author of the popular shareware Virus Detective recently found himself without gainful employment in West Virginia. Although I'm sure West Virginia is a nice place, it's not exactly a hotbed of high tech, and Jeff has relocated to California, a hotbed of many things high and low tech.

We see two ways in which you can help pay Jeff back for all the work he has put in creating Virus Detective and Virus Blockade II, the combination of which is one of the most sophisticated means of protection available. First, and this is the easiest, if you use these programs but have not paid your shareware fee, we encourage you to do so now. Second, if you know of any regular or contract employment for a skilled veteran Macintosh programmer in the South Bay area, it would be nice to drop Jeff a line about it. Shareware fees and other correspondence should go to:
