    Thank you, both Björn and Thomas.  After following your instructions the
    built-in Skymap screen grab now works fine for me.
    Perhaps this feature was already explained in the Skymap documentation
    and I missed it, but hopefully this thread was helpful to other users
    Thanks again.

    No, standard screen grabs don't work in XP for DOS boxes.
    Rob has built a "C" command for capture - it produces a BMP file
    (which you may want to convert to .gif or .jpg to make it smaller)

    Björn neglected to mention that to use the screen capture feature, you
    must have
    the "cursor" on the screen, by pressing one of the arrow keys, or + or
    -. Then
    you press c.
    I also use SnagIt (practically every day), but as you've found out, it
    capture a DOS screen.
