I love Snagit, BUT... it sure would be handy if "Ballons" could have more than One Pointer. Some times I need to indicate or compare areas of my screenshot. Two Pointers from the Same Balloon could say "See how these compare"?

I have a mac and a windows computer. Having to switch to mac all the time just to easily add a tail is crazy. This has been on your radar for 7 years now. What is the matter with techsmith. Just add a tail option when you right click like on the mac. You obviously thought it was a good idea. I just upgraded to 2018 hoping to see this and still nothing. Each new version of the windows program is barley different, actually make a change and make upgrading worth while for 2+ tails. that one change alone is worth an upgrade. Rant over.

Can you believe 7 years ago Mike Curtis, Employee advised 'We hear you'.

The Mac version of Snagit actually does that.  I like the Mac way better where you can just right click and "add tail".

What I don't understand is everyone keeps giving the same workaround method for Windows, yet add tail is still a feature in the Mac version.

This is a bit disappointing as a very longtime user of snagit.  However,  I am in product management for a software product that has many thousands of UI feature enhancement requests and I work closely with development teams to bring those features to market every day.  I fully understand there are priorities and trade-offs to make when deciding what features to spend development dollars on.  I happen to use both a Mac and a PC in my job and use snagit equally on each so I'm frustrated as a user that there isn't parity between the two versions at least on this particular callout behavior.  

So, from one Product Manager to another, I send out a plea to the Techsmith PMs to please add this multi-tail callout feature in the name of parity if not just basic good will.
