    I would like to select certain areas of my world to work with in detail in CC3 as pngs. I can blow them up, but saving the selection I end up with a blank white area surrounded by black as my 'file'. What am I doing wrong?

    Save as rectangular png.

    1) ctrl-A to get the save as menu.

    2) select rectangular png and type in a filename. Click save.

    3) click left mouse button upper left corner of area you want.

    4) move mouse pointer to lower right of area you want to save. click left again.

    file saves. Look in folder you saved to.

    Thanks but ctrl-A doesn't do anything. If I skip that and choose the rectangular selection button and make a selection clicking ctrl-A then makes the selection go away. What step am I missing?

    Ctrl+A is just the shortcut key for File -> Save As to bring up the save dialog.

    Doesn't work on my latest version, Monsen. In fact going to file all the shortcuts are there but Save As doesn't show one.

    Ctrl-A works for me. It shouldn't matter if you have the newest update or not. I've been using this since CC2.

    I tried the above steps on a different map, works for me.

    Are you accidently touching other keys at the same time ? I do that as well.

    Finally did it. Had to go into the folder and add .png to the file as FT doesn't do that for me. Nope. Just checked. FT saved the entire map NOT the selection.

    Uh, you asked about CC3above, so those are the instructions I used. FT3 would be different.

    I just checked in FT3, and the 'save as rectangular png' isn't available.

    Save the entire map in FT3 to your hard drive.

    Ah, I see the problem. You never stated that you were working with FT here. Both me and Jim thought you wanted to save a selection of a CC3+ map.

    When saving a png from FT, you just need to zoom in to the area to export, it doesn't use the selection, but instead the current view.

    Figured it out. 1 when saving as you have to physically enter .png in your file name. 2. You have to use the zoom window tool not the selection tool. THEN CC3 will be able to see the selection you made.
