12.1 The Capture Frame
The capture frame is the area of the screen that will be captured when taking a screen shot or recording an animation. The capture frame is not always visible, but can be displayed by selecting the View/Toggle Capture Frame from the menu. The same menu will hide it again. The capture frame can be shown by selecting the keypad-`0' shortcut. When visible, the capture frame can be moved and resized by selecting one of the borders and dragging the mouse button. To resize it, you must grab the little triangular area in the lower right corner of the capture frame. If you wish to specify the location and size more accurately, you can open the properties dialog box, by selecting the Edit/Properties menu or by double-clicking on one of its borders.
