  1. I can’t count the number of times we’ve had somebody ask “how do I make a copy of my hero?” This will be a useful set of instructionals, HK. Good job!

  2. You are good. thanks man

  3. What is the next item to be added to HM3?

  4. Still working on Coats. Got almost fifty of them and still converting over HM2.5 stuff. It’s a little weird because a lot of those were just vests, so I’ll probably end up with a TopsMaleVests at some point.

  5. @Jeff: Thanks!

  6. My extra tip is before you press print screen use your browsers zoom to maximise the image of your hero on the screen. Its usually located on the right hand side of the status bar at the bottom of your browser.

  7. Or, if you’re on a PC, press F11.

  8. for those using macs ive said it befoeTo capture the entire desktop, press Command-Shift-3. The screen shot will be automatically saved as a PNG file on your desktop.
    To capture a specific application window, press Command-Shift-4, then press the Spacebar. The cursor will change to a camera, and you can move it around the screen. just click the mouse button and the screen shot will be saved as a PNG file on your desktop.

  9. *blushes* i am a guilty culprit of asking how to do this, so i have no excuse for asking now!
