When using Microsoft Word for DOS version 5.0 or 5.5 to capture a graphics screen (such as, Word in graphics mode) after you press SHIFT+PRINT SCREEN to invoke capture, it appears that nothing happens. Pressing SHIFT+PRINT SCREEN twice, followed by pressing ENTER, causes the system to lock.
Please note that this problem occurs only if you use a Hercules graphics card and you configure Capture/s under the following conditions:
- The Enable Clipping option is selected.
- The display type is number “5.”
If these conditions exist, your system locks up. You must cold boot your system.
You can avoid this problem by pressing SHIFT+PRINT SCREEN only once. Wait for the program to complete. If you press SHIFT+PRINT SCREEN a second time, you can also press ESC to escape out of the second capture routine.
