Do you have SunPC on your Sun workstation? (SunPC is a DOS
emulator). Our product is a DOS app (not Windows) which we
can load and run within SunPC on the Sun. This way, we can use the
UNIX Snapshot utility program to do screen captures from our DOS
application. These import into Interleaf without a problem.
(This reply was constructed in a hurry, so if you want
clarification on anything, let me know.)
