Snipping tool


Hey everyone

Good Holiday Friday to everyone. A co-worker/cube mate was taking some jpeg shots of his ProE screen using a tool I had never seen before.

Windows7 has a tool called snipping, It is a cool little utility! In the start button in the tool bar do a search for snipping and it will show you where to find it as well as launch it for the first time. It has a red marking tool!

Have a great safe weekend. Pray for everyone out in the field protecting this country. I have one that just got back form the big sandbax and I have one that just went over. To all Serving where ever you are I salute you.

Our IT dept made Engineering go from Win XP 32 bit to Win 7 64 bit about
a year ago. Many problems with incompatible software, taking about 9
months or so to fix. Including losing preview thumbnails of .pdf's in
Windows Explorer.



BUT, the ONE thing I like about Win 7 is the Snipping tool. We use this
in our emails and/or PowerPoint presentations do convey design issues,
questions, enhancements, etc... to our customers with good success.



Other than this, I can see no reason to go to Win 7,

The reason to switch from XP to Win7 may not be compelling, but there is
one HUGE reason to switch, especially if you're on XP 32bit, and that's
moving to a 64 bit platform.



We've made the switch, and while I would have to admit that our computers
are not necessarily faster (maybe even slower comparing XP to Win 7), BUT
the gains that we have made with the ability to have HUGE models open has
been worth the slow down (if any). And the real gain there is not so much
the 64 bit, as it is the ability to have copious amounts of RAM. Our
current machines have 12GB of RAM in them, and we haven't ran out (yet.)



As software becomes more powerful, and more feature rich, having a 64 bit
OS is becoming paramount. More available RAM to more things, and do them
concurrently.

Does anyone know how to convert a edrawing .eprt file into some format that can
be imported into pro/engineer or solidworks for recreation or getting dimensions
off of it.

I look forward to the Snipping Tool! We are still waiting for all the older (smaller) engineering apps to have their issues resolved for Win 7

FYI. We are running XP 64 bit here. It did help a lot of our memory issues go away.

I prefer FASTSTONE SCREEN CAPTURE and it's editor.

There is a freeware version.

You get what you pay for...Snagit is my vote, for sure!!


Snagit is an incredibally powerful, feature rich, tool for graphics commincation tasks. One of the best parts, for me, is the library of my screen captures. Markup and other editing capabilities are also easy and powerful. Do the 30 day free trial and you'll have no problem spending the $50 for a license.

+1 for Snag-It. As mentioned, the library of captures is very useful.


We also use a template that stamps the image with date/time and throw in a company logo for good measure.
