I am exporting map layouts in Pro 2.7 to jpg files for a publication. They require the legend to be supplied as a separate jpg file. One used to be able to simply copy the legend in ArcMap and paste into Word or a graphics application and save it to various formats from there. I can't find where Pro has this functionality, or at least I haven't been able to figure out a workaround.

Thank you!

Thanks for the tip on snip n sketch. Did not know about that one. Resolution of the resulting (png) image seems to be pretty good, or at least it's better than a screen capture.

I use Windows snip and sketch all the time to do screen catpures: https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/2019/04/08/windows-10-tip-snip-sketch/

If you need something more powerful, I really like SnagIt (not free, but inexpensive). Just the graphic editor would make it worth it to me!
