    Hello colleagues,

    it is intended that:
    - SaveSnapshot() only saves if UseAspectRatio or UseWidthandHeight are True
    and saving only with Width and Height (and ,False,False) does not work?
    - SaveThumbnail() saves everytime a square thumb using the bigger value of width and height?

    Regards
    Stefan

    The API says:

    bUseCanvasAspectRatio (Optional)
    Type: System. Boolean
    If true, the greater of the values passed for width/height will be used with the aspect ratio of the current display canvas to determine the size of the snapshot.

    bUseCanvasWidthAndHeight (Optional)
    Type: System. Boolean
    If true, other parameters are overridden and the current width and height of the graphic canvas are used.

    SaveThumbnail saves a copy of the image thumbnail that you can see in Windows Explorer for AD files. I am not sure of the limitations of this - e.g. max size. In general if you want an image of your part then use SaveSnapshot.
