How to print a trend, without alarm bar or other information in 800xA?
Voted best answer
In 5.1 there exists two techniques to print screen content.
A) The old "tool based" method by which you can add a tool icon to application bar, or display bar, etc. and have the tool to print "Workplace", "Screen" or "Window" (I think its now called "Content").
The latest mode will, if invoked by a tool placed in the trend window just print this window's content.
B) The PG2 context menu's Print... command.
This will print the current display.
I'm not sure there is a verb written for printing...
In 5.1 the Printer Color Replacement feature does not work well with the A) option used on PG2 displays since we use Font Antialiasing to smooth the font characters on display. This smooting introduced in-between-colors that hardly can be predicted, nor replaced with the existing Printer Color Replacement feature.
The B) option above, uses an overlapping and temporary window (with Antialiasing disabled) to capture output which is possible to run via Printer Color Replacement function.
And then, we have option C) 3rd party software, e.g. I could not work one day without SnagIt from http://www.techsmith.com/
In Windows, "Print Screen" captures the entire screen space. Using "Alt" and "Print Screen" should capture only the active window, i.e. the Trend Pop Up Window. Depending on the version of 800xA, there may also be a "Print" button available on the trend window to use. Not sure if it is there automatically or if a System Engineering needs to make it active in order to be able to have it. That should only print the trend window also.
