CBG, more info is helpful.

Go to observer mode, press f8 until you see 'roaming' at the top of your screen. You move by arrow keys. Shift+keys, Cmd+keys and and Alt+keys also move you or rotate your image area. From there you can press f5 to take a screenie.

Personal suggestion: make radar and mousebox small, and take off the scoreboard so that the image area is not crowded. Just my 2 cents.
