Printing under Win95

For security reasons, Java does not allow applet programs to control local resources, including printers. Therefore, to get a hard copy of a screen, do the following:

  1. Make the desired window the "currently selected" window.
  2. Hold down the "Alt" key while hitting the "Print Screen/Sys Rq" key
  3. (A picture of the window should now exist in the system clipboard.)
  4. Open your favorite graphics program [such as Paint].
  5. Select "Edit -> Paste". (If "Paste" is grayed, try the capture again.)
  6. Crop the picture, if possible and desired, and print it.

Printing under Macintosh

For security reasons, Java does not allow applet programs to control local resources, including printers. Therefore, to get a hard copy of a screen, do the following:

  1. Hold down the "Cmd" and "Shift" keys while hitting "3".
  2. (A file called "Picture <#>" should be created.)
  3. Double-clicking the file should open the bitmap in SimpleText.
  4. Crop the picture, if desired, and print it.
