    So GrabText is the only other
    program beside HyperSnap that is
    able to capture text at the current
    time?

    Default Try this.

    Try the PrintScreen button ( PrtScn ) of your keyboard.Paste the image with Irfanview (free ).Go to Edit ---> Paste.Then open the image by going to Open ---> Open with external editor ( I use OpenOffice ) OR

    use an image editing software ( there are many free out there, google it ).Hope this helps!

    You need an OCR to get text from image. I don't think there is such function in OpenOffice.Org, but it's worth checking

    By the way, if you have a printer device that is able to scan, you should have one in the bundle of crap that is installed with the drivers.

    I have Grabtext installed & that will do exactly as you want.

    For some reason you cannot purchase Grabtext from their website the shop's been closed for several months now.

    The trial is still available to download, it's worth trying the trial to see if it still has a time limit?

    why don't you just try "Ctrl + C" works for most standard message boxes (i assume you want the text from the message box that is)...
