Bring back the Caption effect. The Capture Info effect is almost completely useless.

What could your programmers have been thinking? The Caption effect is essential.

Can you be more explicit? 

Are you referring to Camtasia, SnagIt, Jing?

Are you referring to Closed Captions in Camtasia perhaps? Callouts perhaps?

Sorry, but the original post is similar to wandering into a hospital and saying you don't feel well.

Cheers... Rick :)

SnagIt..................."Captions"..............."Capture Info".....................

You had a lot more control over "Capture Info" with the old version.

The new version gives you one location for placement. Font color choice only.Background color.

Yes, I also miss the rich settings of "Captions" found in former versions of Snagit, now called "Capture info". Especially the possibility to position a custom caption on top (like a title bar), and an automatic caption on bottom (like date, os, etc)

I upgraded these days from v11 to v19, and the direction this product takes reminds me in some cases rather to a "back to the future" :-) . PLEASE Techsmith re-add in Snagit the features we had with the former "caption" facility.

P.S. Same request here , for Snagit 2018, from user jasons
