Simulation Results - copy clean image to clipboard enhancement request

Simulation Results - copy clean image to clipboard enhancement request

The way I communicate the simulation results is most often to make a screen clipping and paste into a PowerPoint or email. Starting with 3.0 the results viewer is more difficult to capture a clean image out of.  The small on screen menu is distracting and clutters the image. The same for the "quantity & component" that are now in shaded boxes.

Also when doing screen captures it is difficult to always get the same size, area and not get the framing.  Autodesk MoldFlow Advisor has a very nice "copy to clipboard" button.  This captures the active window and puts a nice clean image out, so that if you paste 20 images into a report they are all the same size and shape - Much more professional looking results.  I would like to request a "copy to clipboard" button.

Additionally it might be nice to have a "copy to clipboard or save image as fixed size" button where you always get the image on screen at the preconfigured ~1200x800 pixels [you configure size].

I know you can save an image out with printing but it is a lot of steps and frames the image with blank areas.  Also you make a html report but that is even more steps.

below are images showing the current screen clippings and a couple versions showing how it could be cleaned up.
