Brush Tool Missing, is the editor in v2020 missing a "brush" tool? An editor without a "brush" tool is technically useless. Please do not tell me to use another editor because there a lot of them out there with the "brush" tool. Please Let me know if my eyes are playing tricks on me.

I don't recall an actual brush tool in SnagIt.
Theres line and pen tools.
Some drawing tools don't appear on the Menu unless you drag them from the "More" menu to the toolbar.

Joe, I understand the two tools you are talking about but a brush is a brush. I have submitted Snagit screen shots and videos of toolbar buttons go missing in the "windowed" and "maximized" environment. They have not been able to figure it out. samples attached. All my drivers are updated and have done a very clean install twice. the toolbar buttons still disappear today but only in a "maximized" environment, weird. Thanx for your help. I have a ticket with them that is temporarily on

Perhaps I misunderstood your post?
To the best of my knowledge, SnagIt has never had a brush tool. So technically, its missing from the program.I thought you were looking for a tool you used to use.My bad.

I agree that SnagIt could benefit from a brush tool.

 Is it possible that we are talking about the AIRBrush tool that SnagIt 8 had?

Actually, I stand corrected.
There is/was a Paintbrush tool.



The UI changed with the release SnagIt 9.
It appears thats when the Brush Tool & Air  Brush pulled a disappearing act.

Plus, the vector based editable Pen Tool arrived.

Joe / Rick, yes I think the paint brush tool disappeared after version 8. I wish they would put it back. There were nice tools in the old versions. Keep on writing, perhaps one day we will see our tools back if not in the standard toolbar and at least available to customize our toolbar. If Techsmith wants to make their editor great, they must learn from the other editors to make Snagit a one stop shop.

Thank you guys for your help.
