Sometimes you need to take a snapshot to show what is occurring on the screen during a mouse over. Normally, you would click on the camera icon to take a screenshot. As this would move the mouse, it would not have the desired effect. There is a hotkey tied to the snapshot ‘camera’ button, Alt P, for use in this very case. To use it, you need to follow some very specific steps:
- The outer part of the console window must have focus. Click somewhere in the top grey bar in the console to give it focus.
- Put your mouse over the area you want to capture in the snapshot, but do not click in this area or the focus will be shifted.
- Hit Alt-p to take the snapshot.
