add common commands to quick access toolbar

When I use SnagIt, I find myself doing the same things again and again.  Unfortunately, those things are all on separate tabs in the interface and there doesn't appear to be any way to add them to the Quick Access Toolbar. 

For example, I use the Torn Edge style all the time.  You can add the Torn Edge *Options* dialog to the quick access toolbar but you can't add a button to just apply that style. 

Basically, I'd like to be able to right-click something in a tab in the SnagIt Editor and be able to just add that to the Quick Access Toolbar.  Here are some of the other things that I'd add:

- Switch to Selection Tool

- Blur

- Copy All

- Draw a Rectangle using a Quick Access Style that I've created

- Draw an Arrow using a Quick Access Style that I've created



Thanks,

-Ben

You can't add specific effect styles or object styles or other tool styles to the Quick Access Toolbar.  However, if you have an arrow or other object configured the way you like, you can right click on it and click "Add to Quick Styles".  In the Torn Edge dialog you can also click on an "Add to Quick Styles" button: http://screencast.com/t/9bzydFc2UF

After that you can select it from the "Quick Styles" section in the gallery:

For the other things you mentioned, you SHOULD be able to right click the button you want and select "Add to Quick Access Toolbar".  Do you see that option?

I agree though -- it would be handy to be able to access everything you use frequently in one place without having to switch between tabs or tools. Thanks for the feedback.
