The clipboard is a handy place to set aside images of interest. Once images are in the clipboard, you can do things such as export them to a different image format or create a video.  The presentation state of images captured in the clipboard is pretty much exactly the same as it was at the time of capture from the viewer.  This includes annotations, window/level, overlay visibility, etc.  So, when you export an image from the clipboard, it should appear exactly the same as it did in the viewer.

Important Note

In previous versions of the Vetstation, the text overlay was unconditionally turned off to avoid exporting patient information.  As mentioned above, this is no longer the case, and the visibility of the text overlay in exported images is the same as it was at the time of capture from the viewer.  You can determine whether or not the text overlay is on or off for an individual item in the clipboard by hovering over it with the mouse and inspecting the values in the tooltip.

 

To show the clipboard, simply click on the Show Clipboard button on the toolbar.

A few notes about this:

Most of the time, Image Number and Position are the same.  However, there are times when they're not.  For example, some older scanners will generate images with numbers like 1000, 2000, 3000, etc.
If you select Custom, you can enter custom ranges, like these:
