Hi all guy´s. I want to convert files from DOS edit.com to some kind of image (pg, bmp, etc). I know that with ctrol+print screen I can do such a job, but only with the text entering in the current dos box. I want to convert all the file entirely. Happens that I make electrical circuits with such a tool, using ASCII extended character (128 to 255). I want to paste them in a mail or forum, but with cut and paste, such characters disappears.

I have a capture of such image, but I don´t see how to add to this post.

Best regards. Thanks in advance.

If there is a possibility of several things going wrong, the one that will cause the most damage will be the one to go wrong.

Try Snag-It. It has the option to capture a scrolling window. It suggests a scrolling window such as a webpage but I just tried it in a command prompt window and it did scroll scroll down and capture all the text.

THX 1138: thanks for your suggestion. I could install this stuff, but when I open the dos edit whit the image I want to do, I cant make edit scroll, so capture all the image.

How may I post a screenshot of my question?

Ok launch Snagit, then open the DOS Edit window. Go to the SnagIt program and select the scrolling window option. Press the Capture button, then click in the DOS Edit window. It should start the capture and automaticly start scrolling. When the capture is done, the SnagIt editor should open up with the screen capture.

Hi guy, I can´t do that edit scroll, I can only capture the screen that in this moment edit is displaying, but the part that is out of this screen doesn´t appear.

Once again, how to paste a screen shot in this thread??

To past a screenshot you need to post the picture on a site that hosts photos such as Google Picasa or Photobucket.

What happens when you select the scrolling window option then click on the DOS Edit window?

Nothing, simply creates a picture with the part of the screen actually in the view, the part under it, the rest that is not being viewed, doesn´t appear.

If you want, write me a PM to oszappa@gmail.com or oszappa@yahoo.com, I can send you a screenshot of I want to do, and what really happens.

Interesting, perhaps the DOS Edit program is not compatable. What OS are you running?

Hey just as a test to see if SnagIt is working properly, go to Start, Run & type in cmd. In the command prompt window, type in

ipconfig /all

That will fill up the window with enough info to have to scroll to see it all. Then try SnagIt on the command prompt window.

Yes, surely DOS edit.com would be not compatible. The system I have is running win XP spanish.

And respect the las suggestion, briefly I´ll try it.

Thank you very much.

With a pure DOS screen like your suggestion, it works OK, so may be an incompatibility with the edit.com

Very tanks to you, boy.
