Beware if you do a fresh install.....

As you may know if you have been following  my posts about various weird behaviours I have been seeing, a completely fresh install was suggested.  I took the uninstall option to save all settings. The latter does not work so it was just as well I took the precaution of screenshotting my preferences

On reinstall only a few options were remembered. I had to go through capture and editor preferences and reset everything manually. If I had not taken screenshots I would have been annoyed.

The following items were particularly galling:

- If you change library location, SnagIt restarts and loses any preference changes you had made on other tabs.

- And it won't accept the new library location being one that was already used, creating a new one instead. I got round it eventually

- Always shrink to fit reenabled, which would have screwed up the resolution on dragged images.  

Why offer an option to preserve user settings if you then ignore them?
