You could change your colors etc.. and save to a Client Access session that 
would be used only for clipboard purposes.  Within your current  lient 
Access session - change yoru colors, Click File, click Save As..., and 
enter for example - screenshots.ws .  Then create a shortcut to this 
session on your desktop and change the default view to your snapshot 
session (in properties, click tap default view).  Now you will have a 
customized session for just screenshots that does not affect your default 
view.  Hope that helps!

Subject:        Clipboard copy for including Client Access 5250 screens 
in      documentation



I am in the process of creating documentation for a new application.  The
documentation is to include 5250 screen shots.  My normal Client Access 
screen
setup is having the black background and, using the clipboard to transfer 
the
image into a Word document, it looks pretty nasty.  I could fiddle with the
color pallette temporarily to make it a white background and change all of 
the
other foreground colors, but then I lose my original settings.

Several years ago, I was in a shop that used Client Access on an OS/2 PC 
and
they had a shareware clipboard utility that was perfect for this, it seemed 
to
be written for these type of 5250 screen shots.  It allowed you to set the 
image
negatively, which is exactly what I need now.  It also featured some basic
graphics editing, such that I was able to clip the toolbar out of the 
image.

Alas, now I'm on Win95.  I downloaded several shareware utilities last 
week, but
none of them had either of the features I mentioned above.

Is there anyone out there using something that has these features?

Thanks,
Dan Bale
