There appears to be no such thread as "Arrow and Line Tails for Callouts." The link leads nowhere, and a search returns nothing.

Actually, the link seems to be to perhaps a hidden thread that is somehow restricted?

When I click the link, I see a bright red banner at the top of the page that reads:

I wish you would bring back pressing the 'enter' key to complete a capture. That used to save me a lot of time when creating documentation for steps in a process. 
Now, after I press 'PrtScn' and click and drag the desired area, I have to click the camera icon to complete the capture. In previous versions pressing the enter key would complete the process, if I did not want to use the 'video' feature which I could click on.

That's because you have all-in-one set as your default capture mode.  In this window, set it to image, with the default options you want, and you won't even have to press enter to complete the capture

This reply seems misplaced. I do recall a recent thread where discussion ensued about SnagIt's new ability to show thumbnail images for .SNAG file types. You may find some helpful information by looking at that thread.

Did my Resize Steps - add size property to step Quick Style make it to the top list? Some others voted for this feature idea in the past and it was listed as 'under consideration' https://feedback.techsmith.com/techsmith/topics/resize-steps-add-to-quick-styles


I'd like to vote for this feature with both hands!

none of them or only few but not badly...   The grayest wish would be to see the snag image in windows explorer (like for a jpeg) instead of snag logo.  Also being able to have "shape" in dot outlines would please me.

Hello!

We actually released your first request in 2019.0.0! With this build onward, you are able to see an image preview in Windows Explorer of your Snagit files:



As for your suggestion for a new shape type (dotted line)... I've added it to the team's backlog for consideration.

Thanks!

Nick

Can I request for One-Click-Save to Downloads folder (or any other folder) from the capture screen? I find myself doing capture-snagit editor-save as-pick download folder-save. Seems a lot of steps. Maybe there can be another button from the capture screen after we selected the capture area to immediately save (with default filename).

I can't speak for the Mac but for Windows, you can make a preset to do what you want.

Create a new image preset and "share it to file" with the settings that work for you.

To have the option for the capture to go to the folder you want you have to use
"Automatic file name" setting or "Fixed file name" setting for the "fixed folder" option to be available.



If you set the "Preview in Editor" option Off your capture will go directly to the folder you set.

If you have "Preview in Editor" ON then you can just click the Green Finish button to send the capture to your folder.

Sometimes multiple threads exist involving more or less the same matter. Are they then 'bundled'?

For example: "Searchable Library - Automatically OCR on text in images"  there is a similar thread titled: "GRAB TEXT Stored with images."

More than anything listed, I'd just like an option to 'pin' the Library Pane. I do a lot of 'hunt and peck' through time to look at past captures I've taken... and would LOVE it if i could preview images without having to keep opening/re-opening the library pane over and over and over again...

My biggest struggle with SnagIt is that the application windows don't rescale when moved to one of my two external monitors.  Older versions worked fine.  I've asked and searched and have yet to find a solution.  I'm running Windows 10 on my Surface Book 2 in 3240x2160 on the main display and 2560x1080 on my external displays.  As of a recent update, Camtasia now behaves the same way but nearly all other applications (such as Office apps) rescale when moved.

Hi Paul - since that is more of a fix than a new feature we didn't put it on this list for voting. But improved handling of mixed-DPI monitor setups is on our list of development priorities.

Dammit, I missed that this was missing!

Chris Larson said as recently as one month ago that this was definitely something that was going to be in a future release; but as the original request was made in 2017 instead of 2018, it looks like it didn't qualify for the 2018 roundup.

@Robert.  Given all the recent posts on this one, including Chris's comments, is it possible this could be added to the list please?

Hi Bill and Paul;

This feature is still under consideration / being investigated (as it's been requested before). Once we have more information on the topic, we'll be sure to share it out.

I would really, really like to be able to choose how many recent screen captures are in my tray.  Limiting the number to just 15 is cumbersome.  On occasion when I'm capturing a lot of screenshots at a time, I have to then hunt through my library to see what I might have missed.

I wonder what the difference is here. I just checked my own setup and sure enough, it's configured as a default to 10.



As you can see, if I click File > Open Recent only 10 files are listed.

But in my Recent Captures tray, I have a total of 24 files I can access.

Cheers... Rick :)

Thanks Rick, I stand joyfully corrected.  In fact, I just captured 50 screenshots (Using numbers on a notepad to verify) and all remained in my "Recent" tray.  That's a welcome change that must have taken place recently.  For a while, I was limited to just 15 in the tray.  It was driving me nuts as I had to search through my library to verify I hadn't overlooked any files.

From the SnagIt capture window (the one with the big red button) click File > Capture preferences...

Then look at the Capture tab. There is a setting that governs whether SnagIt is hidden during capture or not.

Note that some dialogs you open from SnagIt are what is known as "modal" dialogs in Windows. And when SnagIt opens one of those, you are unable to capture them using SnagIt and you have to use something different, like the Windows Snipping Tool to grab those.

Note that Windows programs often produce modal dialogs. SnagIt can capture others just fine. I just cannot capture the ones that are produced from SnagIt.

Cheers... Rick :)

I had 52+ before deleting the test screenshots.

When I noticed the issue nine months ago (and posted on the SnagIt forum -something confirmed by other users), I had supposed that the "Recent Files" option in the settings (referenced in your screenshot above) was related to the maximum number of recent screenshots in the tray.  That is, I didn't see any other settings.  Perhaps the developers had linked the two functions together with the 2018 version???

I just upgraded to SnagIt 19.1 right after Thanksgiving, so perhaps that's what fixed the problem.

Thanks again for taking the time to post directions on capturing SnagIt stuff.  I remember toggling that at one time (perhaps years ago).

I should add that some of the new cut-and-paste functions that help with alignment easily make the 2019 upgrade worth the money.  I've been using those features daily.

Best, Peter

I really want to have the ability to share a screenshot directly to Skype returned to share options!
You had that a couple versions ago and then it disappeared.
It's absolutely essential for quickly showing people things in my team. 
Now, I have to save a screenshot to my desktop, find it, and then drag it to Skype. Multiple more steps.

Rick,

"

THANK you!

It is a simple solution, I know, but if a dummy like me doesn't think of it, he/she needs to use a 2nd screencapture tool to capture something that is within SnagItEditor, so as to combine that capture with other stuff within SnagItEditor, bla bla ... i.e. complicated workaround...

which is solved by just deselecting that feature.

Happy to help. But don't beat yourself up over it. I believe I myself at one point was unaware of it until another forum user pointed it out to me a long while back.

That's what this forum is for. All of us to help each other out!

One thing I would hope to see improved upon is the way the Auto-fill works. I love this feature since it was introduced. But the thing that drives me nuts about it is that it seems whatever I'm doing, the options are always set the opposite way from what I need for THIS capture. And I always find myself having to undo, then adjust the option for either Auto-fill or Transparent, then repeat the process. What would be nice would be if SnagIt remembered what it just did, then allowed me to click the tab I want to use and affect the area without first having to re-do it.

And since I'm on the subject of the Auto-fill, why are we seeing something that reads "Experimental" when configuring the Optimization options? I do note that I sometimes get different or better results when changing this, but it seems that perhaps this may be a holdover from a beta that didn't get cleaned up before release? Seems odd that it would be there intentionally.

I too always have autofill set incorrectly for the current use and i am not sure whether remembering the past setting would help in my use cases.

I'd prefer the option for transparent or autofill to be presented as I make the selection.  I'd accept the interruption to my workflow to get it right first time.

Note that I was not suggesting remembering the setting used.

What I was suggesting was remembering the AREA I had selected, then being able to just click the tab or the option so the same area would then become Transparent or filled with background without having to undo or do anything to re-select it.

Kind of like what SnagIt does when you have an object like an arrow selected and you change its color from the properties. ;)

I think the term Photo Quality"Experimental"is appropriate. Because it's performance is abysmal at best.
If I take this image of my dog. And move her off to the side with auto fill selected. Photo quality. I get 2 rectangles and 2 partial rectangles in her place.


The speed selection is no better. They should probably have experimental placed in its slot as well. However,you are left with just one long blurred rectangle as opposed to four opposing triangles. I think the speed setting is less obnoxious than the experimental photo quality one.

As far as I'm concerned, neither one of them are worthy of introduction..They're both so poorly developed I don't think they belong in the program at all. But that's my take on the issue.

I'll admit I'm prejudice because I'm a Photoshop user from years back. I understand how this feature should work. Let's take a peek at Photoshop Shall we.
In order for content aware moved to work I have to leave the tip of my dog's tail in the image. The original image is as follows
.


So I selected her and moved her all all the way off screen. With the exception of the tip of her tail, on the far right of the image.
After allowing the transformation to take place. There is some smudging and defects. The worst highlighted in purple.The dogs tail is highlighted in red. There are other defects as well. It is not a perfect extraction.


However, a very brief session with the clone stamp tool. Completed the transformation.



I realize that SnagIt will never be Photoshop. But they shouldn't Introduce tools as defective as Photo Quality auto fill. What's the point?
It only reflects poorly on the product.

Regards, Joe

For what it does, I'm more than satisfied with the behavior of the tool. Then again, I'm not sure I'd ever expect SnagIt to do something like perfectly remove elements from a photograph. To me, that's clearly beyond the realm of expectation from a screen capture tool. But it sure seems to do a fine job with manipulating screen captures!

So what do you think Photo Quality auto fill would be used for Rick?

Is it to create photo quality documents and print them to photo paper.

My 2 cents.

Adding features with "Photo   Quality" labels could fuel an expectation that SnagIt has photo editing capabilities, which just muddies the waters.  If you want to autofill a photo, there are plenty of better ways.

Rather than experimenting with features that don't really belong, I'd rather TechSmith concentrated on making the autofill work better on screenshots.  One recurring irritation for me is that if you use it in a situation where there is, for example, text or a contrasting coloured object in close proximity to the cut-out, the autofill becomes smeared with artifacts from the proximate object.

Please TechSmith can you fix that?  One suggestion I made was to have it work a bit like edge effects, where you can click on bevels around the image to select/deselect the sides you want included.  Something similar to choose the sides you do/don't want sampled would be great.

Here's my take on it Paul.
The auto fill tool IS content aware fill. It fills the area you select by sampling the area around it. That's why anything within close proximity of it. Is detected by the tool, incorporated into the auto fill, and creates the smearing that you're complaining about.

That's Photoshop's content aware fill in a nutshell. And that's how Photoshop works. Except Photoshop is a much more highly refined tool.

SnagIt's auto fill feature is what it is. A highly unrefined version of content aware fill. They added this tool to SnagIt version 13.1 in January 2017. I don't think it's improved a lick since it's been introduced.
I have little doubt and could be wrong. That they fully intended to refine this tool to work with photos. That's why they named it photo quality. And that's why they dubbed it experimental. They just never bothered to do anything else with it. And they should probably drop it from the menu.

In many cases you're better off making a selection. And using the fill tool to fill the selection. And avoiding the auto fill tool altogether.

Making selections using the magic wand can be helpful in some situations, as opposed to manual selections. As you can make complex selections and fill those selections.

Since content aware samples the area around it. It will always be prone to creating the smearing that you dislike Paul.
The same thing would occur in similar situations if you were to apply it in Photoshop. It's actually the wrong tool for the job in many situations.
TechSmith isn't going to be able to fix that. It's baked into the tool. TechSmith didn't invent the tool, they mimicked the technology.

In SnagIt, your best move is the art of creative selections, and fill.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Here's a little follow-up to my previous post Paul.

I came across a posting where TechSmith was introducing auto fill to the community.https://feedback.techsmith.com/techsmith/topics/auto-fill-in-13-1-4-1

In this little introduction they were discussing what photo quality fill was all about. I'll include that paragraph below.

On Windows (coming soon on Mac), we also have an experimental auto-fill setting that’s called Photo Quality. It does a more in-depth analysis of the image before filling and we are working on improving it going forward. It's intended for photos and complex backgrounds. If you choose to give it a try and have any recommended settings that you’ve found work, please feel free to share those with the community here. We will continue to improve it.

So as you can see, it is intended for photos. It just doesn't work.

I get what you're saying but I'm not sure I agree with all of it.

Yes auto-fill is content-aware - I get that.  But  since this is not a photo editing app, that needs to be a more focused version. 

Using a selection from elsewhere and pasting it over the errant section is one solution but it doesn't cut it every time - particularly if the screen shot in question has a gradient or textured fill, in which case matching the effect can be difficult, and can result in  a very obvious edge to the pasted section.  Blurring that is not easy without leaving a smudge in place of the line.

In this case, auto-fill is preferable, hence ny suggestion to have control over which edge(s) to exclude from sampling,  Why?

Because the edge next to the object that causes the smearing is less likely to be an issue with gradient / textured fills since the proximate object will draw the eye away from the background effect.  This is, after all, a screenshot not a photo.

I understand what you're asking for.
However, the tool is much more complex than the simplicity of your proposed solution.

Perhaps a deeper understanding of how the tool works could help you see how impossible it is to implement what you're asking for?
The most important thing to remember is this. SnagIt's version of this tool is a stripped down bare-bones version. For starters, you cannot modify anything or improve your selections. That being said.

This video is by Jesus Ramirez. He's an excellent Photoshop tutorial creator on YouTube. The video I'm attaching is an advanced video on content aware fill. A couple minutes into the video is the part I want you to pay the most attention to.


Granted, this example is extreme. But the point is this. What auto filled is influenced by is what is surrounding the selection. And you can't change that.No matter how many times you request it. This isn't something the tool is built for.

You can only refine the selection technique, to get the tool to do what you want it to do.

 SnagIt doesn’t have Photoshop's advanced selection techniques/tools. Not to mention it would be too much work and to many steps to simply touch up a document.

Joe, thanks for the info and explanations, but I think we will have to agree to disagree.

This is software.  As my CTO at work said (I am product manager for a software house), "It's software - we can do anything."

Currently, content-aware fills the space by sampling 360 degrees from a datum point.  It doesn't appear to be a circular fill, otherwise the smearing effect from adjacent objects would be more sever  I am simply suggesting that the algorithm be adjusted to exclude a side from the equation - a 270 degree sampling.

Like this:



It's just software - where's there's a will there's a way.

So, if I'm understanding, because the mighty Photoshop doesn't offer the feature, and to quote a line from a different thread: all image editing software is really Photoshop under the hood. We are concluding that it's simply not possible to achieve?

I rather like Paul's idea and would hope TechSmith would look into implementing it.

Just a general musing on these new replies as well as others that I've seen time and again.

I have to wonder how much amusement the TechSmith development team gets from reading threads like this where absolutely nobody honestly knows what it would take to implement or change something, yet are all making statements like "this is a no brainer!".

I'm not a sports fan, but have heard the term "armchair quarterback". Seems it would describe this nicely.

Cheers... Rick :)

My "no brainer" remark applied solely to the usefulness/need of the feature. There was nothing to indicate that it applied to its implementation.

LOL, I hadn't noticed it was you that made the no brainer remark. My musing was intended as a general observation of quite a growing number of folks.

I lump them all into the same category. As an analogy, I think of my wife wanting me to hang a picture. But the wall is sheet rock. And sure, once it's hung, it stays fairly well. But when she says, you know, it could stand to be perhaps just a quarter of an inch higher, she really has no clue that disturbing the sheet rock a quarter of an inch from the initial place could prove disastrous.

Likewise, with code, I am aware that any disturbance often has unforseen consequences with other bits of code. 

Cheers... Rick :)

Hang on to that optimism. Let me know when TechSmith drops everything and brings this feature to you will you?
I'm still waiting for a simpler way to draw curved arrows. Maybe when they get done reinventing content aware fill. There find a new and efficient way for Rick to hang pictures on the wall? Because it's just like writing code isn't it?

I just finished working with a thread here that made me recall a feature that was removed a few versions back that I'd personally LOVE to see revived. The feature was known as "Custom Trim" and the thread linked below talks about it.

https://feedback.techsmith.com/techsmith/topics/please-dont-tell-me-you-killed-off-one-of-my-favorit...

The proposed replacement method described by TechSmith developer Tim simply doesn't seem to work remotely like what was removed and becomes so much guesswork and frustration that I've simply learned to live without what we once had. But even today I miss the Custom Trim feature greatly. It was just so darn handy.

How about professional looking callouts and text.  The existing ones are embarrassing.  I regularly need to import the image into PowerPoint and then create my callouts and highlights from there.

What would be helpful would be if you were able to post some examples of what you hoped to see for these. ;)

This could be interesting, but buried here in the 2018 roundup thread it will never make it.  Please could you raise it as a separate idea so we can all contribute and vote.

1. After taking GIF / videos, it'll be great if we can blur some part of the screen.

2. Magnify tool should have square magnification in addition to the existing circle magnification.

I dunno. I'm logged in, but the button with the heart says "Like", not "Vote". Is the survey over?
