Saving Text and Graphics

To Save Text:

1. To save Text, select SAVE AS under the FILE menu.

2. Locate the folder or disk into which you want to save and click OPEN to place it at the top of the SAVE window. If you want to save on disk, you may have to click on PLACES in order to see the disk, select it, and then click OPEN.

Note: Graphics will not be saved with the text. If you need a printed copy with text and graphics together, you must print while on line.

To Save a Graphic Image:

Hold the mouse button down as you select a graphic image. Select save image as from the pop-up menu and choose a folder on your computer to save it in. These images may be viewed in Netscape at a later time. To view a saved graphic, select OPEN FILE under the EDIT menu and then select the graphic file that you want to open.

Note: The graphic will either be saved as a Jpg or gif format file. It is helpful to save the image with the name .jpg or .gif , whichever it suggests, so that Netscape will be able to recognize it later as a graphic either on a Mac or PC.

To Print a single graphic:

Hold the mouse button down as you select a graphic image. If you select View this Image , you will get just that graphic loaded on a page. You can then select PRINT and just that graphic will print.

To View Local Files of Saved Text or Graphics in Netscape:

1. Start Netscape and select Open File under the File menu.
2. Locate the file on the disk or in your folder on the server. Note: You may need to click on Places to find the disk.
3. Double click on the file to open it, or click once on the file and then click Open .
Note: This is a good way to show graphics or text to students without using a live connection to the Internet. This will be especially useful in the Portables or in rooms without network connections.
