The sample is the first sentence above.

You can print your creation directly. To save it digitally, you have to take a screen-shot (Use the Alt and Print-Screen combinations) then paste the result into some program, preferably, but not necessarily, a graphics editor.

Thanks to Katherine for the tip. Enjoy!
