I know I can get them elsewhere but if I could right click a Tool button then "copy image" to paste into a document it would make things so much easier..
Get a good screen capture program. I use Gadwin PrintScreen 4.6 (Windows only) which is free and quite customizable. Direct link: http://www.gadwin.com/downl...
You hit the PrntScr key (or any other that you designate fo this purpose),
then click and drag a rectangle (which you may adjust before saving, and there is a magnifying tool that lets you select exactly which rows and columns you want or not),
then hit Enter. With the correct settings it will autosave the image as a file in a pre-designated folder, as well as putting a copy of it in the clipboard so that all you have to do then is to
paste it into your instructions.
You may wish to capture the most useful toolimages at once. Normally your wordprocessor will stay in the correct directory when inserting several images in one session so inserting pre-stored images is quite fast too.
But in principle - Yes, I agree it would be really neat to be able to do what you suggest. AND it would probably make things easier for teachers all around the world which use their schools centrally managed computers where you can't install programs. But Gadwin (or similar) is a good workaround for a lot of people.
try it here
or in GG do this
select a rectangle around the image, press crtl+mays+c for copying and then paste in another app.
you must see the help for toolimage command
For mathmagic's suggestion this page might help.
A screen capture program can do so much more than just tool images though...
I do all these things, depending on where I am. But if i could free myself from location dependent workarounds it would be a blessing.
