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.

 
 

A Trio of Radio Interviews

Send Article to a Friend

A Trio of Radio Interviews -- In conjunction with the 15th anniversary of TidBITS and the release of our Take Control ebooks about Tiger, I've been doing the radio show rounds. On 27-Apr-05 I took a break from tracking down a maddening bug to talk about the history of TidBITS and the Macintosh with Gene Steinberg of the Tech Night Owl Live. Then, on 30-Apr-05, I spent a snappy 10 minutes chatting to Scott Sheppard of Inside Mac Radio. And then late on 01-May-05, I had one of my always-enjoyable discussions with Chuck Joiner on the User Group Report. [ACE]
