Add ability to toggle Time Delay with one click

In Snagit Capture, could you please add a one-click toggle, to the main window, for enabling/disabling Time Delay?

I am constantly forgetting to disable Time Delay after using it and then I have to either sit there and wait for timer to expire or hit ESC and THEN go disable the Time Delay. I know it doesn't seem like much but those extra clicks get really annoying when you are rushing to collect a bunch of screen captures.

It would be SUPER helpful if there was a toggle button for Time Delay on the main Snagit Capture window, just like there is for Capture Cursor and Copy to Clipboard, instead of burying it in it the Time Delay sub-menu.

I envision the "On >" button being replaced by a "settings" gear icon sitting just to the right of the toggle.  

For some reason, I have it in my mind that you might have it laid out this way in the past and changed it, but I could be mistaken.

Just make a capture preset that is for "With Timer" and use it when you need a timed capture.
You can set a keyboard shortcut for it to if you desire.

No need to jump back and forth to turn on/off the Time Delay capture option.
