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.

TidBITS 2002 Holiday Hiatus -- This marks our last issue of 2002, and we're all looking forward to a few weeks off with friends and family during the holiday season. As always, my heartfelt thanks to the many people who make our mission with TidBITS possible: Tonya, Geoff, Jeff, Matt, and Mark; our corporate sponsors and Internet hosts; our authors and contributors; our selfless volunteer translators, everyone who participates in TidBITS Talk, and most important, everyone who reads TidBITS regularly and thus gives meaning to our work. The next issue will appear 06-Jan-03, as many of us gather in San Francisco for Macworld Expo. Let me leave you, then, with the hope that your holidays live up to all that you wish them to be.
