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: Apple of Your iFuture?

Poll Results: Apple of Your iFuture? Although many Macworld Expo attendees were expecting Steve Jobs to make hardware announcements (even the attendees not swayed by rumor sites), the major news turned out to be Apple's suite of new Internet services such as iTools and iCards. Despite the undeniable fact that Apple's new Internet services certainly aren't perfect (and we'll be looking at more of the concerns in a future issue), we've been impressed with their overall design and integration. So when we asked, "Do you plan to use any of Apple's new Internet services?" we weren't surprised to see that 82 percent of respondents answered yes. Apple has grabbed the interest of a lot of people with these Internet tools; let's hope they continue to polish the existing tools and offer new ones as well. [JLC]
