Give the Gift of Giving -- It's a tradition. At the end of every calendar year, we collect gift suggestions from TidBITS readers and staff, assemble them into semi-consistent categories, and publish the results as a special TidBITS issue. And, every year, TidBITS readers reveal themselves to be a creative, resourceful, thoughtful, funny, and thoroughly generous bunch of people. No matter what holidays you may celebrate - if any at all - we hope you find these suggestions useful for bringing a measure of joy to the lives of others. And we'd like to extend a hearty thank-you to TidBITS readers for their support and readership during 2001 - without you, none of this is possible.
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.
