If the workspace is in a zoom state, the snapshot image will be accordingly compressed or expanded. Click the Normal Size button on the Button Bar to show at scale.

A snapshot image is generated at the screen's pixel resolution. If you paste a snapshot image into a Word document, and then print the document, the image may look grainy, since the printer's pixel resolution is greater than the screen's. To correct this, zoom in to double the size, snapshot the larger image, then shrink it by 50% in Word. This will cause the image in Word to be stored at a higher resolution suitable for printing.
