Regarding the annotating, drop-down menus are mentioned, but what about 
pop-up menus? For example, how would you like the screenshot of the 
mixer window to look? With the popup menus that occur when one 
right-clicks the Strips or Groups pane, and/or the popups when one 
clicks the Input and Output buttons, or the space for plug-ins? If too 
many of the popups are visible, the screenshot for the window will be 
obscured and perhaps too many areas covered up.

I'm just trying to get an idea of how to do this, and the answers may be 
helpful to others who may consider the idea of making a screenshot or two.

Best wishes,
New Mexico, US
