Window 7’s Snipping Tool – The Subversive Copy Editor Blog

How to use Windows 7’s snipping tool as a copyediting tool.

 

 

The snipping tool can capture anything on your screen (the image above is a snip I took of my screen saver), but my favorite use of this tool is to grab a chunk of redlined text from MS Word or part of a PDF of page proof to paste into an e-mail when communicating with a writer. If you’ve ever tried to paste actual redlining into an e-mail, you know that even if the results look good at your end (unlikely), they’re completely unpredictable at the other end. Likewise trying to grab just part of a PDF without jumping through a lot of hoops.
