I want to print out all the drills I have learnt so far... Will I have to draw a pool table with Adobe Photoshop, or is there some easier way to print out a pool drill? The Wei tables cant be saved as jpegs, Ive tried...

When you have the Wei table up press <Ctrl> and <Print Screen> at the same time. Open MS Paint and click Edit > Paste and then crop it to just the table. From there you can save it as whatever file type you want.

Also, as an FYI, you can press <Alt> and <Print Screen> and that will copy just the active window instead of the entire screen like if you have a pop up message or want to just have the active window. If you don't have the window "maximized" then this would probably be the way to go.

thanks, it worked! but how do you move those arrows around? I can make them longer or shorter, but i cant drag and place them on the wei table,...

You have to grab the arrows by the narrow end to place them. It takes pretty accurate mouse control, but it can be done. Grabbing the arrow head end just extends it as you have already figured out.

If you want to draw out the drills by hand, you can print blank, gridded pool table diagrams (drawn precisely to scale) from www.engr.colostate.edu/pool/ (http://www.engr.colostate.edu/~dga/pool/). Links to several varieties are available below the book, DVD, and CD images.

For more information, see the instructional diagram thread (http://www.billiardsdigest.com/ccboard/showthreaded.php?Cat=&amp;Board=ccb&amp;Number=186250&amp;page =0&amp;view=collapsed&amp;sb=5&amp;o=&amp;fpart=&amp;vc=&amp;PHPSESSID=).

Happy drawing,
Dr. Dave

PS: If you have the Adobe Acrobat software, you can add graphics (e.g., balls, lines, and text) to the diagram files before printing, because they are stored as PDF files.
