How to Create a Screenshot for SixBit

Fixing some bugs is easier if we can see what you see. Therefore, we may ask you for a screenshot while SixBit is running.

If you aren't familiar with creating screenshots, then please follow these instructions:

Windows XP/Vista:

1. Load SixBit to the screen or error message that you want to create a screenshot image from.
2. Press and hold the Ctrl key and press the PrtScrn key on your keyboard. This will place the screenshot on the clipboard.
3. Open Microsoft Paint (or your image program of choice) by choosing Start|All Programs|Accessories|Paint in your Windows Start Menu.
4. Click Edit|Paste from the Paint menu.
5. Click File|Save As from the Paint menu.
6. Enter a name for the screenshot, and choose JPEG as the file type, and save the file to your "My Documents" folder (or folder of your choice).
7. To post on the discussion board, use the "Click to Attach Files" button in the Attachments section below the Topic editor to upload your screenshot image to the board.  To send with a ticket, just click "Browse" at the bottom of the submit ticket window and point to the newly created file.

 

Windows 7/8:

1. Open Snipping Tool by clicking the Start button. In the search box, type Snipping Tool, and then, in the list of results, click Snipping Tool.

2. Click the arrow next to the New button, select Free-form Snip, Rectangular Snip, Window Snip, or Full-screen Snip from the list, and then select the area of your screen that you want to capture.
3.After you capture a snip, click the Save Snip button in the mark-up window.
4. In the Save As dialog box, enter a name for the snip, choose a location where to save the snip, and then click Save
5. To post on the discussion board, use the "Click to Attach Files" button in the Attachments section below the Topic editor to upload your screenshot image to the board.  To send with a ticket, just click "Browse" at the bottom of the submit ticket window and point to the newly created file.

 

Mac:


1. Hold down Command-Shift-3 at the same time. You will hear a "camera sound" and the screenshot will appear on your desktop as a PNG file. If you are using 2 screens then it will create a PNG screenshot for each screen.
