Subject: Creating snapshots

You create a snapshot by saving the current view as a snapshot. A snapshot does not include any entities on layers that are not currently visible. The contents of the snap­shot also depend on the current drawing space. In model space, the snapshot shows only the current viewport. In paper space, the snapshot contains all visible viewports.

To create a snapshot

   1   Display the drawing exactly as you want to capture it as a snapshot.

   2   Do one of the following to choose Make Snapshot ():

   On the ribbon, choose Tools > Make Snapshot (in Manage).

   On the menu, choose Tools > Make Snapshot.

   On the Tools toolbar, click the Make Snapshot tool.

   Type msnapshot and then press Enter.

   3   In the Create Snapshot dialog box, specify the name of the snapshot file you want to create.

   4   From the Files Of Types list, choose either *.emf, *.wmf, or *.sld.

   5   Click Save.

The current drawing remains on the screen, and the snapshot is saved to the directory that you specify.
