Allow text without anti-aliasing

I recently upgraded to SnagIt 2019 after using SnagIt 11 (and earlier) for many years. I often add text to captured images of Windows dialog boxes, in order to ask our software developers to make changes. With the new "improved" version I have lost the ability to add text that has no anti-aliasing, so I can no longer create a mock-up that looks the same as the real dialog will look. See the "blurred" red text in the attached example. I want to add red text that matches the style of the black text, with no anti-aliasing. In older versions of SnagIt this was simple; it now seems to be not possible.

I see many other users complaining about this lost feature.

So many changes that are causing problems in this new version (2019) Snagit seem to be taking no notice of users anymore and need to get their act together, to avoid losing those users. The KISS principle needs to be remembered!  I will be going back to an older version until Snagit get this version sorted out!

I have been on this forum for over a year and have also noticed the increase in complaints regarding the loss or major change of functionality after each upgrade. In my opinion, This is very disappointing to those of us that use Snagit in our jobs because of specific functions. I do understand that it is a very complicated process to add new functionality without effecting the current functions but, the reason most people purchase Snagit is they have seen or know of functions in Snagit that are unique and would make there jobs much easier.  Please consider using well crafted surveys (as many other companies are now doing) to get feedback from current users to find out what functions they consider important.
