ARM Process support

I have been using Camtasia on my old PC and also on my Mac. Love it. 
I recently got rid of my old PC and purchased the new Surface Pro X which is equipped with an 64 bit ARM Processor (not supported by Camtasia at this time - did not see this one coming).
Since the market for more powerful tablet type PC is booming, I would highly recommend adding the support for such devices.

Co-signed! I can't buy the Surface Pro X as much as I want it, because of this issue.

I just requested that Articulate re-compile Storyline 360 for ARM also. I'd love if Techsmith got on board too with the future of computing, as ARM-based Windows 10 is the way to go! ARM devices have better battery life and are always connected like smartphones, as they run on powerful Snapdragon chipsets. Thank you!

+1 for this request. Just replaced my aging surface book with a surface pro x. Until techsmith recompiles snagit for arm, I'll have to resort to using Windows' snip & sketch.

I read recently re-compiling for ARM isn't all too much of a chore. Microsoft did a lot of the work in the background to make it easier for companies to get their apps ready for ARM devices, so I am curious if TechSmith, Articulate, etc. will pony up the resources to make it happen sometime in 2020.

I do agree with you, which keeps me optimistic towards the outcome TechnSmith will choose...  ;)
