take snapshot of... Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
In the perspectives drop down menu there is a function "take snapshot of" which I assumed took an image shot of the current screen being displayed and saved it to the desktop for sharing etc. I tried it, heard the photo sound but found no image, can anyone advise on this??
No, that takes a "snapshot" of your current view settings and updates the current perspective. Type "take snapshot" into OmniFocus' help facility for more details.
To take a snapshot of the screen or a particular window on display, use the system-wide settings.

Command-shift-3 for the whole screen.
Command-shift-4 for crosshair selection of the content on the screen*.
Command-shift-4, with a release of those keys and then followed by a spacebar press to be able to snap the window you are mousing over.

Those will deposit screen shots on your desktop. If you just want them on the clipboard for pasting into another app without saving them to the desktop, include the control key in the mix.

* From Leopard onwards, some useful new features were added to the crosshair selection method:

1. If you hold down the shift key while sizing the crosshairs, you can limit the direction of the selection to the horizontal or vertical depending on which way you drag first (left or right for horizontal, up or down for vertical).
2. If you hold down the option key, the selection will size from the centre rather than from the edges.
3. If you want to move the selection area once you have sized it, hold space and you can drag it about the screen without it resizing.
