Quick and easy ways to take screenshots

by Oct 28, 2022Featured, All Articles, Education

A couple of short videos this week on how to take screenshots – very useful when copying to an email, document, or social media post.

  • Using the ALT+P keyboard shortcut
  • Using a custom toolbar button
  • Minimize/hide History Slider
  • Disable watermark/footer when printing
  • Automatically add details to the chart using Chart Element tool (such as the name, timeframe, sector, or script value)

(NOTE: Enterprise Services clients – or those with the Publishing module – can also add Chart Headers and Footers.)
