I found that just using the built-in screen shot capability of the
Mac produces acceptable results.  Resolution for printing will always
be an issue, since the pixels just aren't there, but the built-in
stuff always worked for me.

I find that Command-Shift-4 and dragging the box around the part of
the Protege interface you want to capture does a good job.  I think
that in 10.3 the format for screenshots is already PDF, so you only
need a way to include PDF screenshots in your document.

Unfortunately, if you happen to be using MS Word to write your
documentation, then you are a bit out of luck, since Word doesn't
support the import of PDF files.  You will have to convert them to
a format that Word does support such as TIFF or PNG or GIF.
