Allow us to set Snagit's default background color in OSX

Almost never do I think "I'm going to share this screenshot, and I'd really like the background to be a transparency grid!".  Rather, as I'm adding markup to the periphery of a screencap, I'd prefer a default of white.  Right now, that setting is only available in Windows--the fact that it's available there suggests that you already recognize the value of the option.  :)

But saving me several steps, several times a day, goes a long way toward integrating the tool into my daily activity.

Hi,

If you right click anywhere on your capture, you can select "Change Canvas Color.." and set it to anything you'd like.

Hi - This is a great idea, but when I tried this I don't have the "Change Canvas Colour" function enabled ???
I use a iMac with macOS Sierra 10.12.6 and the latest update of Snagit
Can anyone help?
Thanks, James

Another way to find this is to click on the Help menu in Snagit and type "change".
