    Nobody knows? This is pretty urgent.

    Do you mean exporting the schematic capture in an image format?

    With the schematic open, click on File, then Export, then Image.

    You can either give it a filename, or click the "Clipboard" box.
    A resolution of 150 winds up being large, but is quite legible.
    75 is about as small as you'd want to go.

    I prefer to export the image to the clipboard, and paste it into MS Paint, and then save it in .PNG format. That way, the file winds up being pretty small, but doesn't lose quality like .JPG format does.

    That's in frames.lbr

    The first thing I do when starting a schematic capture is select a frame, then drop it in the schematic placing the lower left corner at 0,0. This will keep all x,y displacements in the schematic positive, which makes it easier to find problems (like the output from Erc).

    I usually use FRAME_A_L for smaller projects. I like having the letters/numbers around the edges to help people zero in more quickly on the area of the schematic under discussion. The landscape format fits the screen better while working on it.
