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.

 
 

Macworld Expo NY 2003 Events

Send Article to a Friend

The official name appears to be "Macworld CreativePro Conference and Expo," so despite the waffling that was no doubt a result of heavy duty negotiations between Apple and IDG World Expo, we'll stick with calling the upcoming show "Macworld Expo" (but if we're feeling cranky we might revert to "the Conference Formerly Known as Macworld Expo"). Whatever the name or future location of the conference, for this year, it's show time in New York City in less than two weeks, from 16-Jul-03 through 18-Jul-03.

TidBITS Events -- I'll be attending the show and giving my usual complement of talks and other events. Please come by and say hello; meeting people is one of the best parts of trade shows.

  • For those in town early, you can find me at the Apple Store Soho in Manhattan at 6:30 PM Tuesday, July 15th. I'll be sharing iPhoto 2 tips and signing copies of my latest book, iPhoto 2 for Mac OS X: Visual QuickStart Guide. If you are planning to come and have some time afterwards, check out TidBITS Talk for another special event.

  • On Wednesday, July 16th, at 10:45 AM, I'll be giving a Level 1 session entitled "Getting Started with iPhoto" in room 1E20 that will provide an overview of iPhoto 2 along with a variety of useful tips and tricks. Since I always run out of time to answer everyone's questions, I'll be continuing the iPhoto discussions and signing books at Peachpit's booth (#536) at 1:00 PM after a break for lunch.

  • On Thursday, July 17th, at 10 AM, I'll be back at the Peachpit booth (#536) to answer any and all questions you may have about wireless networking and to sign copies of The Wireless Networking Starter Kit.

  • On Friday, July 18th, at 11 AM, come to the User Group Lounge in room 3D04 for a one hour discussion of TidBITS, the most interesting products of the show, and the Macintosh industry in general.

Netter's Dinner -- Despite this show's new focus on the creative professional, Al Tucker is forging ahead with the 6th Annual East Coast Macworld Netter's Dinner, to be held Wednesday, July 16th. People will start gathering at 6:00 PM near the statue in the lobby before walking over to the restaurant at 6:30.
