Printing and Screenshots

In addition to the usual screenshot features provided by the operating system the MCS includes two functions to specifically capture the contents of its views. The first function is the Print feature, which outputs all currently visible views to a printer device. Which output devices are available depends on your system configuration. As all views use a dark background by default the MCS allows you to invert the colors used for printing, so color (and therefore ink/toner) usage for the background is minimized.

The other function is that each view contains a “Save Image” entry in its context menu. This will open a file selection dialog where you can specify an image file for creating a static snapshot of the current view.

Note that both functions do not simply create a 1:1 copy of the current screen, but will optimize the view for the chosen target. This may include a more (or less) detailed axis scaling for example.
