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.

We can't be the only ones asking ourselves: is it really November already? We've had a busy year, and as we push toward the end of 2008 and prepare for Macworld Expo in January, we're going to recuperate next week and celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States.

We won't be asleep the entire time, of course - we just can't help ourselves. We'll no doubt continue to post to the TidBITS Web site. Check back at the site or subscribe to the our RSS feed or Twitter stream to keep up with everything we're writing.
