Please add the capability within Snagit to relocate the capture Library to another location. I work across a number of machines and I would like to store my Library in the cloud on my Google Drive or SkyDrive. It would make working across machines much more efficient,

You can do that with your saved captures. It's just the captures that Snagit saves automatically that go to a fixed location. If you save your captures, either manually or via a profile, you can accomplish working across the various machines until TS decides to allow the datastore to be relocatable and shared.

Manny,

Thanks for your response. I already save all my edited captures to my Google Drive, but that doesn't really address the topic. What I would like is for TechSmith to add is the ability to relocate the Snagit Library/datastore so that raw captures can also be automatically saved to the cloud.

Maybe for those who don't know, with version 12 it is now possible to move the library to whatever path on your machine. I like that new feature a lot... and thanks Manny in the years before I have been a silent reader and was grateful for your tips in that matter.

Sounds like good info. So, how do you move the library and change the path, in V12?

Thanks,

Sam
