I'm looking for a way to scan images into SnagIt but haven't found one. Does this capability exist?

One other thing. Assuming you manage to get the scanner talking to SnagIt, you cannot simply do it directly from the editor. You have to go through the main capture interface, then ensure that the option to Preview in Editor is enabled.

The solution Rick pointed to works. I have Snagit 13 installed on my Windows tablet and have created a preset that captures the image from the scanner. I assigned a hot key to it so requires only that I press Ctrl + Alt + s to launch. A popup opens that allows me to select the generic Windows scanner interface or the manufacturer supplied interface where I make adjustments to the scan settings and then initiate. A bit cumbersome but does get the job done.
