Allow the creation of multiple "pointers" from the Snagit callout shape

Very often I have  need to highlight parts of an image with a callout. The parts may have the same text in the callout, but require pointers to different parts of the image. Currently I create a callout and then copy and paste the callout precisely on the copied callout.


The result "looks like" a single callout (sort of!) with two pointers.

Is this a Windows SnagIt Question?
If so, You should have posted this directly to the Windows forum.

However, theres already an antiquated Windows post for this very feature.
And unfortunately, this request dates back 8 years. I voted for it again anyway.https://feedback.techsmith.com/techsmith/topics/balloons-19ptvr

If your a MAC user with the newest version.Its a hidden feature. MAC users have had it for years.Why TechSmith refuses to add such a simple feature to the Windows versions is a mystery.
You can see how to access it here.https://feedback.techsmith.com/techsmith/topics/what-happened-to-preset-callout-box-with-double-poin...

+1 from me, again, yawn.  It does get monotonous though.
