I kinda lost track of what's being discussed here, but if there's a question of taking screen shots with VL 5.8 Standard, you have at least two options:
* Vector (Start) menu, Graphics, Shutterbug. Right-click on the bug in the upper left to find the options.
* The Gimp, File menu, Acquire, Screen Shot.
Both options let you set things like delays and whole screen or a window. Shutterbug has several more options.
If you install ImageMagick (it's in the VL repositories), you can use the import command-line utility, which has tons of options. Do man import after you install ImageMagick.
