There is a way to create a jpg right from DeedMapper. In the Plot View,
choose File, Save As, and change the file type from mbl to bmp, tif, or jpg.
Once you do that, you have to close and reopen your file though.

Subject: Re: [DMU] plat to word
How do I copy a plat produced in DeedMapper to a document in
I just try copy, only the description transfers, not the plat.
There is no provision within DeedMapper (that I know of) to do what
you want. But there are a number of ways this can be done. Probably
the easiest is to Copy/Paste using PrntScrn and Windows Clipboard to
the Paint program (or your favorite graphic editing program). In
Paint or whatever, you will want to crop the result to eliminate the
extraneous part of the screen (Menus, Toolbars, Status Bar and Task
Bar). Save the cropped view to file (I prefer BMP or TIF in case I
need to further edit the image further). Then just Insert that file
into your Word document.
Another is print to paper and scan the result, again using your
graphic editing program to crop it as needed. This seems to add a
step or two, but should give about the same results. However, test
just now don't give the same result as the scanned images are not as
sharp probably due to the fact that the lines are rather
thin. However, I only scanned at 300 dpi; so perhaps scanning at a
higher resolution may give better results.
Hopefully, Steve will include this provision in a future release. <g>
Hope this helps -
