Is there anyway to grab an image of a notebook without it visibly opening? CurrentNotebookImage[nb] seems to force the notebook nb to become visible.

    $\begingroup$ @b3m2a1 Not really, Rasterize will capture an image of the entire notebook, whereas CurrentNotebookImage will grab what fits on screen if it was opened - which is what I was wanting. $\endgroup$
