Hi,

 

Can anyone advise me on how I upload a RR & Co track layout screen onto the Forum ? it doesn't let me open the file and convert to a photograph or screen dump.

cheers

Hi Tom

Open the TC file and set up the screen to where you want it to show.

Then take a screen shot (Win 7 has a Snipping Tool), which gives you a PNG file.

Upload it the same way as a .jpeg

Is that what you're after?

Hi Max,

Sounds like it. I've just shut the laptop down and I'm in IPad mode now as I lie in my kip but when I open it up in the morning, I'll give it a bash.

I have done a simple layout plan for Breadalbane and want to try using it as a springboard for tackling the R & GLR when the time comes. I have a question or two to ask but will wait until I have the screen shot up as it will be easier to follow.

:thumbs thanks for the instructions I'll give it a bash

Cheers

Toto

I'm not really Oh Faye with iPads, Toto.  Wendy is all Mac, but she says snipping photos with Apple is really easy.

I think the pads are a bit limited compared to the Mac Books and desk tops, but it should work.

Tom,

Press the start button on the front and the on/off button on the side of the IPad together and it will take a photo of the screen.
The photo is saved in the photo library just like any other photo.
I've downloaded the photo bucket app and use that to get photos from the IPad to photo bucket and then onto the forum.
Works for me.

Cheers

Marty

G`day Toto & Folks,

You can copy any screen on a laptop or pc by simply pressing the " PrtSc  SysRq " button on the keyboard.
A copy of the screen is saved to the clip board in the system.
Open a program like Paint and then PASTE the image into Paint. You can resize it to suit this forum and then save it in your usual location as a JPEG file.




I copied the start up screen and pasted it into paint where it`s ready to be modified and saved



:cheers  Gormo

Use 'CTRL' Max. Hold it down and press 'PrntScr'

Now there's a thing, in Ubuntu your just press the 'PrntScr' and it ask if you want to save it as a file or copy it to the clipboard.

Very odd Max.

Ctrl + Prntscr used to be a fairly standard way of getting a screen dump on most PCs.

But of course that was before they started changing things to be more suitable for tablets and smartphones (did somebody mention Windows 10).

Anyway, despite our ramblings Toto, did you manage to get a screen dump of RR&C ?


Ed

Hi Ed,

I've been full time in the shed really so not tried it yet but I will. I didn't want to take time out at the moment as if I get the points sorted out, the finish line will be so much closer. Just really programming after that.

So my appreciation to all who have made suggestions, and I am not ignoring the answers. Just need to finish the task in hand before I get round to trying the above suggestions out.

I'm fighting on a few fronts at the moment.:mutley

Cheers

Toto
