text-only PrntScrn in Vista Business? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was just debugging a Delphi app, and I attempted to copy an error message window to the clipboard. I meant to use Alt+PrntScrn; however, I must have pressed the wrong key combination, because what I pasted into my Word document was a text-only version of the error message, namely:

     

    <quote>

    ---------------------------

    Microsoft Data Link Error

    ---------------------------

    Test connection failed because of an error in initializing provider. Cannot start your application. The workgroup information file is missing or opened exclusively by another user.

    ---------------------------

    OK  

    </quote>

     

    This is a feature I have wanted for years, for documenting code and reporting errors. It's great if it's actually been built in; unfortunately, I have been unable to reproduce the accidental key combination that activated it.

     

    Has anyone else seen this behaviour?

     

    Cheers!
