To add... Windows 7 also has a snipping tool.

So does Vista
You see things and say, why?
 But I dream things that never were; and I say,

Why not?

I think some people out there already know this, but here is another way to post a tab on the forum, if you cannot get to an image site or do not want to create an account.

(1) Make tab in fingering composer.
(2) Copy past tab onto your post. You will see letters instead of pictures, that's just what happens. It also helps to tell people which composer you used, because they each use different letters.
(3) include a link to the STL fingering composer, which is at http://stlocarina.com/fico.html

So the people just copy past the letters into the composer and Boom, tab.
___________________________________________________________________________________________________ _

If you want to print tab you find this way, then do this:

(1) Have your internet open to the window that the tab is on
(2) hit ctrl and printscreen. Printscreen is to the right of F12 on most computers
(3) Paste into windows paint, photoshop, etc. Most image editing programs will work.
(4) Crop the page if you want, and print away. You can also copy past the images into word processing software if you want to print more than one at a time

___________________________________________________________________________________________________ _

Hope this helps you guys
Go ahead and play your music. You never know, you just might make someones day.
And now for something completely off base, Kirby Dance!

Hi all. I have been able to save the picture tabs i create in fico using your above advice. However i find it impossible to post images of tabs on the boards here, best i can do is a link the file on an image sharing website. Can anyone offer me any help or advice on what i am doing wrong, or not doing as may be the case

Hey man, I noticed that you're with imageshack. I am too. The next time you go to copy and paste tabs, link the Forum Code (or something like that, it has the word "forum" in it) in your post. That way, the image will show up without a link to click on.

Hope this helps! :)
I <3 ocarina and sewing.
Music gives my days light and my heart, peace.

Heres whacha do.

Get the basic url of the image, lets say http://www.stuff.com/img.gif  (a hypothetical image at a hypothetical site)

then enter it with the bbcode like this

[img]http://www.stuff.com/img.gif[/img]  It should work then.

Most image hosting sites have a button you can click on that will give you this code so you only have to copy and paste it into the forum.
Go ahead and play your music. You never know, you just might make someones day.

You could do this or you could also hit the print button in the finger composer in the upper right corner to just print the tabs.
Ocarinas are cool!! You should be proud you know how to play one, not embarrassed because of it.

Yeah, provided that the tabs fit on 1 page. Already learned it doesn't print beyond that.

I'm assuming that people noticed that.

And it adds the ocarina logo in the PDF, which annoys the perfectionist in me. but with snipping tool, I don't think the CTRL Prt Scr method is really necesary. But if you don't have it, then I'd use it

Eh, figured it still deserve a non-assumed clarity of it. I had converted like 6 good sized music sheets in that to realize later it was only 1 page, basically wasted extra hours redoing them... Only reason I accepted it was the repeat process was good practice at the time. If I had to redo and hadn't felt a benefit from it I would of been extremely irritated.

Ouch. That does suck a bit.  I meant about the print button (I forgot to quote... derp), but the printing being limited to what's in the window is definitely worth mentioning. I found that out the hard way too...
