    Copy a chart as a picture and paste outside of NT8?

    Good morning,
    I have gotten used to being able to copy a chart as a picture and paste it into an MS Word document on another platform I use. I use this to create detailed documents for strategy and trading plan development. I've only found the functionality to right click the chart, pull down to "save chart image," save it to my desktop, reopen it with Photos or some other image editing program, then copy from there and finally paste into my Word document. It works out okay but is pretty clumsy. Is there a way to directly copy the chart window and paste directly into Word?

    Thx, Scott Johnson

    Hello miracleworker,

    Thanks for your post.

    You can (left click on chart to bring it into windows focus) then use Ctrl-shift and PrtScr to print a screenshot of the chart which loads the picture into memory where you can directly paste into word. This is not a NinjaTrader8 action but a windows capability.

    The windows "snipping" tool that comes with Windows will also work here and can be very handy if you only want to save a part of a window.

      Thx Paul. I really should have figured that out myself. Forgot about that function. :-)
