'[EE]: eagle circuit to documentation'

What is the best way to get (a part of) an eagle circuit diagram into a
documentation (I use a word file)? I know how to export and paste into
the word document, but I think I get a less-than-optimal result: it
looks blurry in the details.

When you export, try a better resolution. For schematics, I use
300dpi (150dpi perhaps? I always forget, I usually try a few resolutions
between 150 and 300 and pick the best size/detail compromise)

Instead of pasting directly to your doc, you might try pasting in an
image editor (paint shop pro works great), crop the part you want
and then save to JPEG or something.

You want to theoretically export to a vector image format. I use the
Linux version and I can print to a postscript file. This file can then
be converted to my desired format.
Microsoft products don't usually play with PostScript directly. I
believe you would want to convert to a Windows Meta-File (wmf or emf?)
which works very well in Word.
I'm sorry I don't know if printing to a postscript file works in Windows.
If you can't get a vector format to work, you should figure out in
advance what resolution you need and convert to a raster image - PNG or
something.

How about a regular screenshot? If you're trying to cram a huge
schematic into a small space then there's a pretty good chance it'll
look fuzzy though.

I tried, a screenshot works *much* better. I think my problem is in a
scaling operation somewhere in the process, which uses an algorithm
which is OK for photos but bad for pixel art.

Now is there a way to get rid of the 'origin' crosses? In the PCB editor
they are on a separate layer, but in the circuit editor they seem to be
an unseparateable part of the component.

300 dpi with black and white.
It works even with huge sheets.

Not from the screen as far as I know.  That's one reason you want to do a
proper export, not a screen shot.
