can we stop getting too much information cannot screen shoot?

Examples:

map hive, das shlass, clandemonium.....

there is no purpose in having the tools if map is too big; therefore this should be revised in map -foundry consideration, or somehow screen shoots should be available

First post is there for what reason?

He's talking about BOB not correctly taking snapshots sometimes. It's happened to me a couple of times too. I don't know if this belongs in suggestions though. The way he's talking makes it sound like Map Foundry, but It seems like it might be more of a Tools/Enhancements type thing.

On the largest maps, it is not currently possible to take a snapshot in chat. This is because chat lines have a maximum length and there is just too much information to encode for those maps with large numbers of territories. The other type of snapshot still works (I believe -- I have not used them lately) but unfortunately these are stored on the computer where they were taken and not easily shared with team members or transported to other computers (from home to work, from school to smartphone, etc.).
