Capture screenshots stopped working



is there anybody who can tell me why it stopped working all of a sudden?

I was taking screenshots on my dev alpha and the first 2 worked fine and then it just stopped working.. (it only makes the sound)


I found some threads telling you to restart the device a couple of times (didn't work here).

Maybe you can also try hard reset. Press power button for 10 seconds ignore any message to reset the device.

Good good study, day day up

Re: Capture screenshots stopped working

i never used the simulator but i think you could use this:


on windows: select the simulator screen and press (alt + prtscreen (PrintScreen))
on Mac: cmd + shift + (3 or 4) 3 = fullscreen caputure 4 = crop selection
