Thanks for the response to my earlier question. I will let you know how that
I have two related questions which still reflect a relative lack of
understanding--newbie or not. I would like to create a webpage that contains
a plot view image of my entire mapped area showing owner names. Because of
the size of the area, the smallest resolution at which the owner names are
readable is .76 miles per inch at 600 dpi, which would be four pages if I
printed the full plot view.If I simply try to export the plot view using the
save as function, I can only save the area on the screen, rather than the
entire plot view. With luck and trial and error, I could presumably get four
.jpg files which I could place together on a single webpage. If I had the
right software or knew more about how to use what I have, I could probably
stitch these together into a single file and map. My question: is there a
simple way to create a single .jpg file of the entire plot view at the

JPG file, but
it's pretty easy to save multiple files. Here's a trick: Set
up the way you like, use File SaveAs to create a JPG file. Hold down the
Ctrl key and press the right arrow to move eastward exactly one whole
screen's worth. File SaveAs. Ctrl+down arrow moves you south a full
screen. File SaveAs. Ctrl+Left arrow moves you west a whole screen.

buttons that would move the user North, South, East, or West and show them a
Second question: is there a simple way to save the table view to a tab
delimited .txt or .rtf file so that it can be inserted into basic webpage
authoring software like Frontpage? I have kept a parallel Excel file that
has this information, although I have to "manually" udate it periodically to
reflect additional plats added to Deedmapper. I know I can easily insert an
.xls file for an Excel table into a Frontpage webpage. I just wondered if
there is way to do this without the extra step.

Excel 6 is pretty smart about pasting tabular text from the clipboard. It
will automatically format it into columns (see Paste Special). If you're
using Excel 5 you need to do a File Open on the text file, but there is a
"wizard" that allows you to format it into columns.
Note to Steve--it would be really cool if you could build webpage output
into the software itself, just like many of the genealogy programs do. I can
imagine plats proliferating on the web like family trees.
