Printing from Terminal-Like App

We use this custom application that pops up a 3270-like terminal screen and displays the information we need.  I want to be able to print that information.  There is no Print option in the program...

So if I ctrl-A and copy the text to wordpad, it is all green and completely mis-formatted.  Any ideas how I could get that text (and sometimes you have to scroll down to get it all so a Print Screen won't do it) and copy it for printing?

Much thanks.

Hello dougp23,

What about Screen copy (Windows Print Screen Key) ?

You press the Print Screen Key
Open Wordpad
Menu Edit -> Paste  (or right click and paste)

Generaly you've better printing with landscape.

Regards.

If you have to scroll down, you can print screen 2 times. Print screen first then scroll down and print screen again and merge those captured screen.

Sometimes the screen may return pages of info, so print screen would be way too cumbersome.  

We tried it though!

Some Ultra Editor allow you to auto arrange, pad column like UltraEdit : http://www.ultraedit.com
or Vedit (Pad lines to same length) : http://www.vedit.com/news.htm
