with WoW on a mac it is F13

She figured out that the only way to keep from being frozen was to stay in motion,
and long ago converted most of her flesh into liquid.
Now when she smells danger, she spills herself all over, like gasoline, and lights it.

Shift+Command+3 = screenshot

Shift+Command+4 = crosshair to select user defined area.

Shift+Command+4 ... then hit the spacebar, then click the mouse = camera icon appears. Move it over any icon, window or image to take a screenshot and then click.

...and don't forget that Preview will also take screen and/or window shots. Start up Preview and Select File -> Grab. It will even take a timed sequence of screen shots. Pretty neat.

I heard the shutter click when I captured my screen shot, but neither control V nor paste seem to place it in my Pages document.

kurt --

You're probably long gone but others searching for this answer may want to know. When Macs take a screenshot they don't copy it to the clipboard, they just save it as a .png on your desktop.

You can copy to clipboard by adding the "Control" button to any of the above button combinations. (ie Cmd + Ctrl + 3)
