Selecting the Screenshot Button Screenshot.png will save a full image of what is shown on screen to the inserted SD card. If the screenshot has been saved successfully, the LEDs will illuminate yellow in sequence from left to right to display the progress of writing to the SD card. When screen capture is complete, MFD Touch will emit an audible confirmation notification. If the screenshot has been saved unsuccessfully, for example no SD card is inserted or the card is full, the SD Card Icon at the top of the screen will flash 3 times and MFD Touch will emit an audible error notification.

A captured image is saved as a 1.5 MB bitmap image, orientated at 90° to the original screen image, with the prefix 'screenshot'.


IMPORTANT – NEVER remove the SD card when a screenshot is being taken, it could cause the unit to crash!
