To take a snapshot of your screen, please use one of the following instructions below depending on the device you are using.
Ipad: Simultaneously press the on/off button and the center home button. You will notice a flash on-screen and you will hear the camera click sound if you have sound enabled. The image will appear in your library and can be shared in whatever way you choose.
Mac: Press and hold the following buttons on your computer: command-shift-4. A cross-hair cursor will appear on your screen. Click and drag the cursor across the stroke-risk chart. When you release the mouse button, the screen shot will automatically be saved on your desktop as a png or pdf file. The image can then be shared or stored in your photo library.
PC: 1) Make sure the risk chart is in the "active" window on your screen. This means it should be in front of all your other windows. 2) Then, hold down the "Alt" key and press "Print Screen." 3) Next go to "Start" MS Paint (or if you can't find it, click "start run" and type in MS Paint.) Then click enter. 4) Finally, click "control V" or use the menu to select "edit paste" and your image will appear. To save it, go to File, "Save As" and label your chart however you'd like. You may then share your image as you would share any other.
