Adapt font type/size of edited text to source text

Text editing of bitmap screenshots is a cool SnagIt 2018.

It would be great, if it would also detect and auto-adapt the font type/size (instead of defaulting to Arial font).

Gunnar, I would think you are referring to "keeping the source formatting" just like MS Office applications do when capturing text. I would say a screenshot would keep the source formatting since it is a picture.

Not so, if you change the text (which is a cool new SnagIt 2018 feature). It performs an OCR over your screenshot, and you can change the text. SnagIt then applies the text changes to the screenshot bitmap. Only the font is not properly adapted.

Hopefully, you are referring to SnagIt not retaining the original Font from the capture.

The font loses the integrity when you "Edit Text". It would be nice if SnagIt would adopt the original font face instead of the user reformatting the text to match the original.
