I am creating a User Guide for a software application. Often, a screenshot of the full screen is useless, because it's so small in printed documentation. I typically don't do this, but only add a partial screenshot that highlights the text describing it. Are there any rules for indicating that the screenshot is partial? I don't like the look of a jagged edge, but wonder what other folks do in this situation.
