I'm enjoying your HyperCard pages! I'm a parent volunteer in schools and do lots with HyperCard.

I'd suggest a control panel called Flash-It so that you can capture the palettes and menus of HyperCard precisely. It's shareware and I'd be happy to send it to you if you want.

I work with ALL levels of students.....from first to 8th. I really like scripting in HyperCard with them all....it's the only IN CONTEXT spell checker I know...and gives them the sense of real POWER over the computer.

Here is Flash-It, the shareware I mentioned. Just drop it in your system and then restart. Its defaults should let you do this:

Cmd-3.........the cursor turns into crosshairs and then you can select the section of the screen you want to capture (works if you have a menu down...or a dialog box showing!). You will then be asked to name the PICT file that will be created.

Cmd-C......does same but puts it into the clipboard (so you can just PASTE it into your document.

Look at the control panel for other ideas.....it is quite powerful!

Enjoy.

Steve

(wrote Suzanne) "I looked at your site [http://www.halcyon.com/powell/] - very clean! nice. I am just getting Web access for the students in my classroom - your site will certainly be one of our bookmarks."

Many thanks.

I'm very interested in the concept of using the Web to improve communication in our community (looking IN as well as reaching OUT!) I think the pictures of teachers, staff, and parent volunteers can help all of this. My next focus is looking at parent volunteers who act as art docents....and from their pictures linking to sites that discuss the artists that they are teaching about.

(wrote Suzanne) "You have an impressive list of great links to go to. "

THAT is a bit of a mess right now, but soon....soon....
