This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Text Capture

 The text capture feature has been removed from SnagIt 12. I'm looking for a
suggestion for an alternative. I periodically find the text capture feature useful. SnagIt was the only way I knew how to capture text. For example I would use it to capture and then manipulate file lists from Windows Explorer or a list of database queries. 

Suggestions for an alternative would be appreciated.   Thanks

Thank you for your continued feedback and interest in Snagit.  We originally made the decision to drop text capture based on a variety of reasons.  The biggest driver was that continued changes in OS support caused the feature to degrade despite significant efforts to try to maintain it.  In the intervening time since that decision, things have not changed significantly.  At this time there are no plans to bring back text capture.  That being said, we are listening, and hear the value this feature offered.  We are continuing to consider alternative approaches that could allow us to bring this feature back, but as of yet we have not found a suitable alternative.
As always, thanks for your feedback!
