Add SnagIt "Share to Program" Configurations to Toolbar

The ability to output from SnagIt to custom program destinations, and save configurations for those custom programs, is great!
However, it's a multi-step process, and this doesn't seem necessary.

Currentt State: 
We can put "Program" as a destination on the toolbar. This opens the list of custom program configurations we have, lets us choose from them in the list, and then click ok to actually output the image. This is a three step process.
Desired State: 
This could easily be shortened to one step. When adding the custom "Program" button to the toolbar, you could choose a specific program destination that you've already configured (just like you can do with built-in program destinations). The icon displayed is pulled from the .exe its configuration points to. Now you can click once, and it will output to that program, reducing three steps to 1.

If you use this feature often, having to click three times to output your Snagged image gets quite repetetive, especially if you have multiple custom program destinations configured, or destinations with different parameter sets.
This would eliminate those extra steps, using features that already exist inside the program, by allowing the "selection" step to take place when adding it to the toolbar instead of each time the button is clicked.

Your idea I'm guessing is for the Windows version of Snagit. The Mac version already has the ability to customize the toolbar for the one click thing you describe. Here's a screenshot of the choices that can be added to the toolbar. So you likely want something similar.  I support that.

One way to shortcut your share to a program is to setup a Capture preset.

Once you configure the program you want to share to in the "Program" option
it should be available as a "Share option on your capture preset setup settings.

Here I have a capture/share to Photoshop.
