This was an actual email thread that went out today at work. I teach at a large public school. SASI is the software we use for grading and attendance. At this point, we're mostly a PC campus--those of us with Macs are either stuck machines using OS 8.6 or sneaking our own laptops to campus.
One of my colleagues responded with:Hello colleagues,
Once again I invade your desktops uninvited with a piece of information I found very useful.
I wanted to print my seating charts from SASI and was very disappointed to find there is no option within the SASI program to do so.
I found a workaround that allowed me to do so using the features built in on my PC. Mac users will have to ask the cute kid who tells all the lies in the TV commercials how to do it. For PCs it's a cinch (really).
1) Have the seating chart screen up in SASI.
2) Press the Print Screen key in the top row of your keyboard.
3) Ue the Start button to open Programs/Accessories/Paint. This opens the free Paint program that comes with every PC.
4) Press Control-V which will paste the seating chart screen into the Paint program.
5) Print the page from the Paint program by using its Print button.
Gotta love it!I just had to respond to your dig at Macs!!!! (I'm a Mac-person till I die.) It's even easier to do in a Mac. All you have to do is press "shift-command-3", and a "Picture1" file appears on your hard disk. You just print the "Picture1" file. HA!
