Take screenshots of sheets with Command-Shift-4
Authored by: serogers1970 on Oct 25, '12 04:06:29PM

This hint has been around for ages. I just tested it on a 10.3.9 eMac (yes, we still have those...UGH!) and I may have been using that trick even further back than that.
You can even capture individual pieces on the desktop (HD/app/file icons), the dock pieces (icons, or just the outline of the dock...although not sure why you'd want that), etc. Get the camera icon up and start moving around. Amazing what little bits and pieces you can grab in a screen shot.

Yea, except sheets weren't added until - I think - Leopard. So you don't have them in 10.3.

Any source for that claim? IIRC they where introduced with Mac OS X.

Sheets were indeed part of the original presentation of Aqua. So they were actually there even before the release of the first public version of Mac OS X.

However, the behavior of screen capture regarding sheets has evolved through the various versions of Mac OS X, which is what this hint is about.

My bad, that's correct. The behavior changed with Lion, I think, and prior to that they worked very differently with screen shots.
