If the window you want to print is bigger that the screen, then you will get only the upper part of it using WinPrint.
To get the whole window, you should use WinPRT and WINPAN instead.

WINPOS ,,180. 40. ,,, MYWIN FPU
WINPAN 0. -999.
SCREEN.WAIT ; necessary to update the screen after WINPAN if executing within a PRACTICE script
WINPRT MYWIN ; print first part
WINPAN 0 40. ; scroll down
SCREEN.WAIT ; update screen
WINPRT MYWIN ; print second part
