Card SnapShot from Negative Rect?

Scott,

I don't know of any way to designate multiple objects for one snapshot.

Maybe instead of rearranging the objects then relayer etc. you could make
multiple snapshots that you place relative to each other in a temporary
(invisible) group and then snapshot the group? You could probably even use
the rects of the objects for placing the images of the objects. Since for
your final snapshot negative rects would not matter.

Of course this is not as fast as one snapshot but saves you from
rearranging.

(not tested)

Kind regards
Bernd
