Alpha Simulaor

Does any one know how to take screen shots on the Simulator for the Alpha?

Re: Alpha Simulaor

I couldn't get the Dev Alpha simulator to switch to landscape mode, so I would need to use my monitor in portrait mode to make a screenshoot using MS Windows controls "ALT GR + PRINT".


If possible I would recommend to use Ripple emulator in Chrome to switch easily between portrait and landscape mode and make screenshots the same way. After that you could use your prefered image software (eg. Photoshop, Ifranview,...) to cut the screenshot to your needs.

Hi Sergiosandoval,


Use snipping Tool..
using this tool you can take screen shot as much you want for width and height.

You can use the Command-Shift-4 if you're on a Mac. If you're on Windows you can just use the Snipping Tool that comes with Windows.


As far as I know both won't care if the app is bigger than the screen and they are just going to take the screenshot perfectly.
