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.

 
 

Interarchy 4.0 Streamlines Look

Send Article to a Friend

Interarchy 4.0 Streamlines Look -- Stairways Software has released Interarchy 4.0, the latest version of the widely used Internet helper application formerly known as Anarchie. Interarchy 4.0 doesn't boast any new major features (though the previous free update to version 3.8 offered a number by incorporating a customizable interface builder, a TCP network traffic watcher, and numerous "friendly" daemons from Stairways's earlier software offerings). Instead, Interarchy 4.0 simplifies its setup and installation process and abandons the eldritch themes of runes, magic, and wands in favor of a streamlined default interface and an almost arid Web site built around 9-point Monaco - it's almost like having a flashback to the days of BBSes and 1200 bps modems. Interarchy 4.0 also includes numerous unspecified tweaks and enhancements to its underlying transfer engine. The program is a 2.2 MB download and $35 shareware; registered owners of previous versions of Anarchie and Interarchy can upgrade for $10. [GD]
