    Hi,

    Print screen used to copy MP10 screen to clipboard, but now it only copies
    its frame and a hole, no image. What is going on?

    Jay.

  2. Turn off hardware video acceleration (buried in Options dialog).

    Mike,
    Thanks a lot for the hint. Worked nicely. Can you also describe what that
    acceleration does. Appreciate your efforts.

    Jay.

  4. The video is sent directly to hardware(for peformance), and there is no
    intermediate "buffer" in RAM from which PrtScr and many other
    screen-capture tools can read.
