Add Option to OneNote 2013 Integration to place Cursor After Image

The new OneNote 2013 integration is fantastic for working with online education and video.  I have one suggestion to really polish the workflow.

When inserting the image into the OneNote ... using the "at cursor" option ... once the image is inserted, place the cursor after the image rather than leaving it before the image.  This way, as I'm taking notes, I can annotate the slide or picture I've just taken without having to down arrow past the slide.  Small ... but it adds up over time.

Thanks for considering this option!

Thanks for the idea! We're constantly looking for ways to better integrate with products our customers are currently using. I'll pass this along to the development team!

Any movement on this?  It is such a small change that provides a big benefit.

If you want your images on the page in the order you captured them, you have to:

1) Capture an Image - I use the "repeat last capture" key;
2) Bring One Note forward;
3) Hit down arrow a few times to move the cursor *after* the image (or use your mouse);
4) Do your next capture.

It would be a small but very productive change to have the OneNote cursor positioned *after* the captured graphic in order to have your captures order on the page. Steps 2 and 3 are eliminated.

Or, open source the Add-In and I'll have at it ;>  I'm serious ...

This is still, for me,. the number one productivity killer in an otherwise great product ... and seemingly an easy fix.  Any chance?

Or ... I'm still serious ... open source this code and I'll fix it!

This is still a problem in 2018.  If you insert multiple captures, they appear in reverse order in the OneNote page. I'd have thought it would be a fairly simple fix to move the cursor down after inserting each capture.

Its been a couple paid upgrades since I asked for this change again.  It is the one productivity speed bump I have with the product and for whatever reason, it will not be prioritized.  

In other interactions with TechSmith, I'm generally told it isn't a priority.  I'm still willing to fix it if they would open source it!

I can understand it not being high on the priority list, but it's been on the list for 4 years. They should make an effort. I could understand if it were a resource-hungry fix, but it doesn't look more than a couple of hour's work.
