Another way is to implement the windows mousedown and drag events, then any
empty part of the window lets you drag it.

add dX, dY to window
mousedown... (store click point)
dX = X
dY = Y
return true
mousedrag... (move window so cursor's at same place)
Left = Left + X - dX
Top = Top + Y - dY

OK, thanks - yes, that's quite easy.

In other words, just make the app as big as I want, even if it's
"off-screen" then do Cmd-Shift-4-Space.

The hard part of that is how to put the things on the app that you
want, when it's so big. That was the nice thing about metal windows -
it drags using any part of the window. Now that I'm away from using
metal windows (now I use Document windows with a Silver background -
closet to Leopard look I can get), I needed a solution. Document
Windows only drag using the title bar.

So I made a little floating dialog that allows me to move the screen
by clicking a four-arrow graphic. I move the screen around using
that, set up the dialog, then make my screenshot.

Thanks for all your help! I knew there was an easy solution.

Hi,
Thats right, the main windows size - meaning when you run your
project, it'll be bigger than your screen. You wont be able to see
more than half your window, but you can still take a screenshot of it.
This works regardless of your computer's maximum resolution.

The original poster mentioned setting your "window" to the max size
you want (even if that size goes beyond your screen). Then, command-
shift-4 and the space bar will take a screenshot of your window (even
the part that is outside of the visible portion of the screen).

Thanks for the 3 suggestions, but none of them are adequate.

Probably a law of diminishing returns. Plus, it's not merely an issue
of lots of stuff, but of proportionality.

I mentioned that I'm already at the maximum size my Mac allows.

I'm using a Mac Mini which doesn't support multiple monitors. Plus, I
need the same amount of vertical depth as horizontal depth.

Perhaps I'm wondering why there has to be a maximum resolution
allowed on the Mac. Why not have some extreme thing like 2560x1680
allowed? In my case it would be unusable in day-to-day use, but for a
screenshot it would be great. The screenshot would capture what is
GOING INTO the monitor and wouldn't look crappy since the monitor is small.

Isn't there some type of general driver for the Mac that allows these
larger resolutions, despite on how it looks on the monitor?

Two monitors allow you to take a screen shot over two screens. I
recently used two 24" (an iMac plus an external screen) to create a
screen shot for an article in a magazine.

You can take several screenshots and build them to one big screenshot with a graphics app.

Like the user map I made where I toke 5 or 6 screenshots to get the whole map together.

Hi,
Can I recommend changing your default window size to the size you
want. Run the project and it'll be larger than your screen. Then hit
Apple+Shift+4 then hit Space and you'll get the lovely screenshot icon
and click that onto your app window and that should be it!
Give it a go - this is just a quick workaround which should give you
the results you're after.
Cheers,
Milton

[OT] Large Screenshots
Date: 30.11.09 04:29 (Sun, 29 Nov 2009 21:29:22 -0600)
From: Rubber Chicken Software Co.
For advertisement for my apps, I want to create a screenshot that has
the most amount of information on it. I see other apps do this and it
looks impressive.

I have a 22" monitor and I use 1680x1050 resolution. That is the most
my Mac gives me for my monitor. The screenshots I see are bigger then
that though.

Is there a way of creating a bigger screenshot without having to hook
up a bigger display? I'm looking at getting a bigger display soon
anyway but I want to do this now, and it would be nice to know how to
make better screenshots without relying 100% on the monitor.

(There is a HP 27" selling for around $370 right now.)

I could borrow a large monitor, but people tend to be so possessive.
=) Besides, I'd rather do it myself.
