I created a lovely "dozy embrace" passage, but couldn't master the screencap technique.   >:(

I have a thing on my mac called "Grab" that is easy to use.  I don't know how to advise someone who doesn't have that.  I want to see your art, Paul!

What you could try is "Save as ..." with the whole site, with a bit luck, you get a screen cap of everything, then you could cut out the art with a picture editing programm. I haven't tried it myself with the Wordle page yet, but I've done it with other websites.

Guess it's similar to Elle's "Grab" function.

Cool, Fran.  In reading a little more of the advanced stuff on the site, I saw that if you put a tilda between two words you want to stick together, like "Del~Mar", it will come out looking like "Del Mar," not "Del" one place, and "Mar" another.




Yes, yes and yes!!!! That's exactly what I was looking for. Thanks so much :-*

Is this one yours?


If so, very nice, Paul.

I was following the ABC game rules, where "del" and "Mar" are treated as separate words.   ;D

Seriously, Elle, thanks for the tip.  Here's the re-do:

Those two are wonderful juxtaposed with each other.  One, just coping, the other, the best moment ever.

Wow, yes!  Thanks for finding it, Fran.  I think you Mac users have an easier time!

Maybe this will help you figure out the screen caps:

It has a video tutorial, which I bet will be an enormous help.  Good luck.
