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.


OmniWeb 5.1.2 Released

Send Article to a Friend

OmniWeb 5.1.2 Released -- The Omni Group has released OmniWeb 5.1.2, a minor update aimed primarily at fixing bugs (see "OmniWeb 5.0: The Powerful Web Browser" in TidBITS-742 for a full review). New features in OmniWeb 5.1.2 include support for Fast User Switching and the Flash Player 8 plug-in. JavaScript alert() and prompt() dialogs now properly display the domain that initiated them and bring the initiating page or tab to the front, a useful security measure. Most of the changes, however, are bug fixes, ranging from the trivial, such as corrected tooltips, to the significant, including a variety of crashing bugs. See the release notes for a full list. OmniWeb 5.1.2 costs $30, and upgrades are free to registered users as a 6.0 MB (English) or 10.3 MB (internationalized) disk image. [ACE]
