Here are two functions that you can use. I think you can also get a patch
from Symbolics for this.

;;; Lets you hardcopy a big window without getting a stack overflow.
;;; Note that you can give a screen (eg color:color-screen) instead
;;; of a window. Also note that it must be compiled, not interpreted,
;;; to avoid errors about using a special form as a function.
;;; Based on code from Symbolics S/W support: just changed hci::hardcopy-window
;;; to hci::kbd-hardcopy-sheet, because the hardcopy-window function
;;; clips the R edge of wide windows when printing out on our system.
(defun My-Hardcopy (window)
(let ((grown 2))
(cond ((zerop grown) nil)
(t (setq grown (1- grown))
(send trap ':proceed ':grow-pdl))))))
(hci::kbd-hardcopy-sheet window nil))))
;;; Hardcopies color screen in background using My-Hardcopy.
