Hey Bradford (and other Stella listserv people),

I just remembered a feature I was longing for in the next release of 
Stella, so I thought I'd get it out.  I don't know what the condition of 
this feature is on other versions (any answers, folks?  I know we touched 
on this briefly before), but it's awful tough to get a good screenshot on 
MacStella 0.7.

To take a pic of the screen on a Mac, you simply hold down the "Apple" 
key (also known as the "cloverleaf" key), shift, and 3.  Unfortunately 
this also activiates the interlaced screen display within Stella, 
creating lines through your screenshot.  I can't think of a good way 
around this other than making the interlaced display Apple-4 and just 
leaving the Apple-3 cmd out.  

Of course I can go to the finder and snap a pic, but the lines are there 
whenever I leave Stella 0.7 as well.

Thanks a lot, and thanks a TON for the Mac port.  I hate to think what 
this would be like with just the Activision ActPac emu!  :P
