Ask A Cartographer

In ArcEditor desktop, and document properties, I see a check box to save a thumbnail image with the map. How do I find where those thumbs are stored, and how do I extract them for use in another application?

Mapping Center Answer:

These thumbnails appear in ArcCatalog on the Contents tab when you choose the Thumbnails display mode (as opposed to large icons, list, or details) on the Standard toolbar.  The only way I know to use them anywhere else is to take a screenshot (Alt-PrintScreen) of ArcCatalog and paste the result into Paint and then you can copy and paste from that into other applications.
