looking for specialized screen capture software
My wife has a counseling practice & uses specialized software to help her schedule and keep track of client billing. Most of the time, she just prints out a receipt for them after a session. Occasionally, she needs to e-mail clients receipts for her services & for their insurance needs.
This specialized software allows you to only print the receipts directly to your printer. There is no option or way to "save" the receipt to her PC (Word, PDF, etc.) so she can then attach it & e-mail it to clients. Therefore, if she needs to e-mail a receipt, she has to basically first print it out and then scan it back into the PC as a PDF file. She can then attach this PDF file to an e-mail and send it this way.
Is there any software out there that can somehow screen capture the receipt portion only on the computer and then save this as a certain file (Word, PDF, etc.). I thought about the screen capture feature within Windows XP, but this won't work as she doesn't need the whole screen to be included. Only the receipt part that is on the screen.
Basically, something that can take a pop-up window (the receipt) and make it some sort of file (Word, PDF, etc.) so it can then easily be e-mailed.

Hold down the ALT key while pressing the Print Screen button. Then just paste it into Paint and save it as a .jpg.
The ALT key tells the Print Screen button to only grab the active window.This signature intentionally left blank.

There's always CutePDF... (Free Download 3.83 MB)
It simply adds a Virtual printer to the list of available printers, so when you go to "print" you choose the cutePDF option and proceed as if printing, then instead of printing it out, it asks where to save the PDF file it produces...

Primo PDF was suggested on another board I posted to as well as CutePDF. I installed Primo and it works good for my needs, but CutePDF looks like it would work too & might give it a try as well. See which one works better between the two.
Thanks for the info.
