The Screen Capture Tool

Help+Manual has an integrated screen capture tool that includes all the functions you need to make attractive screenshots quickly and efficiently. The tool will automatically select windows, controls and menus and you can also select fixed size regions or freely-defined rectangular regions of applications or the desktop.

In addition to simple screenshots you can also add shapes, shadows and background colors and automatically resize your screenshots with a choice of high-quality scaling filters.

For more control over effects and appearance you can create and edit your screenshot with Impict, the screenshot editing and enhancement program included with Help+Manual. In Impict edits are non-destructive, which means you can always go back and change something if you need to.

If you have a dual-monitor display the window you are capturing and Help+Manual must both be in the same monitor for captures to work. On some systems captures may only work correctly in the primary monitor.

 

Note: Turning on Windows DPI virtualization for devices with ultra high resolution displays disables the Help+Manual screen capture tool, because objects on the scaled screen can no longer be identified normally. The Windows Snipping Tool will be started instead in this mode.
