'call out's in editor spawn pesky font selection trays which obstruct your view of the image! : )

'call out's automatically generate font selection tools which are obstructing my view of the text (or image) without fail. I use this feature every day for flash card creation in medical school. It would change my day for the better to opt-into minimizing or re-position this "font-selection tray" (or whatever it's supposed to be called).

thank you for reading, 

great product : )

+1 on a handle to move it
But if you hit escape it goes away until you click back into the callout to add text

In SnagIt 12 you have to right click to bring up the floating menu.  But the menu disappears with every change you click to apply a change.
However, you have a menu at the top if you want to make several changes.


I don't understand the need for the pop up menu staying on screen the entire time your typing.

the problem is that while you're typing the tray is obstructing the image that informs what i am supposed to be typing into the "call-out"

kind regs,

I wonder why they never considered contextual tool bars?  Most graphics programs use them just to avoid issues like this
