Please note that if you are viewing the local copy of published map, opening any remote url address will be blocked by the browser for security reason. This will work correctly after upload the map to server.

“command+shift+4” and click to pull the mouse. The image will be captured directly in the desktop
“command+shift+3” can capture the whole screen.
For Window Vista or Window 7 users, you can press Print Screen button or use Snipping Tool to cut the image easily.
You can publish the map to share with others by:
1. upload the published map to your website
2. zip the necessary files and email the zip file to people you want to share the map with. So they can unzip the published file and open the html file (interactive map image) in the browser.
This is caused by the difference between the resolution of the medium. A
computer monitor usually have a 72-96 DPI resolution, which means there are
72 to 96 dots within 1 inch of length. While for a normal printing quality,
it normally requires at least 300 DPI. So if you tried to make a screen
capture of things displayed on your monitor (low resolution) and print it
out directly, everything will go blur.
To solve this problem you should either reduce the output size, or increase the image size on screen . For example, if your monitor is 72DPI and your original map is 200x100 px, if you want to print it to the same size as displayed on your monitor while maintaining a print quality of 300DPI, you should change the original map size to : (200*300/72)px x (100*300/72)px, which is around 833x417 px.
Please note the PC version (http://www.imapbuilder.com) and the
