The feature has been removed as of SnagIt version 12 and above.

 If you want text capture you can download and install SnagIt 11. You can activate it using your SnagIt 12 key. You can also have both versions installed on the same machine.

However, you can only have one version open and running at the same time.

You can download and install a new or an older version from this link.

Thanks for the post. We just upgraded from version 11 to 13 and was shocked that we lost the ability to capture text.

I understand the reasoning that you have listed from previous topics posted byTechsmith staff. Being able to use an older version is better than nothing so thanks for the link and the info

I would hope in the future that we can generate enough support to help bring this feature back in a future release of SnagIT.

For those following this thread, TechSmith is re-reviewing popular requests.  Hurry and re-vote on text capture here (ideally by June 9th) for it to be prioritized for implementation.
