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.

Poll Results: Mac OS 9 Upgrade Plans

Poll Results: Mac OS 9 Upgrade Plans -- Last week's poll inquiring about your schedule for Mac OS 9 showed the TidBITS poll-going readership being more cautious than we had expected. Results were evenly split among those who planned to upgrade immediately (26 percent) and within 1 to 2 months (27 percent), with 3+ months being the most popular answer at 37 percent. Only 10 percent of readers had no plans to upgrade. Frankly, I would have expected more people to consider upgrading sooner - it's possible that people don't consider Mac OS 9's new features sufficiently compelling to upgrade before early adopters have identified any hidden problems and before compatible versions of popular utilities like RAM Doubler and StuffIt Deluxe are available.
