[protege-discussion] Making Protege screenshots for documentation on Mac

Thank you for your help Thomas,

I found the problem (don't ask how may ways I've tried for making the 
screenshots and formats…).
Somewhere in the process of the PDF generation all images where 
downsampled, which resulted in unreadable screenshots. I found the 
culprit and now the screenshots look okay on screen and print 
surprisingly good.

Again, thanks
