Use Screen Snapshot and Grab Screen Commands

Use the Screen Snapshot tool or the Grab Screen (-GS) command to capture a static image of the entire Presentation display. The new image is automatically associated with the item that is active at the time of capture. It appears in the Workbooks Explorer.

This feature is helpful when you need to save an exhibit marked up during trial by a witness as a new exhibit, or if you want to use it as part of another presentation or PowerPoint project. However, if you want to save the dynamic layout of your presentation (and walk back through the annotations using the Undo and Redo tools), use the Save Stage feature instead.

To capture the Presentation display

  1. On the Presentation Toolbar, open the Application Tools

  2. Click the Screen Snapshot tool

  3. -or-

  4. Type -GS

  5. Press ENTER

Note: See Edit Workbook Item Properties for details on how to edit Screen Snapshot properties.

  1. From the TRIAL DIRECTOR main menu, select EVIDENCE on the left navigation panel.

    A file explorer window appears.
