Can we have an option to "silently screenshot" without the app opening after each one?

I am often taking several screenshots at a time, and I find it pretty annoying that the app opens up a couple seconds after each screenshot is taken.  I don't see a way to turn this off, while still saving system screenshots into SnagIt.  I am usually marking up screenshots using SnagIt so I do want them to appear in the application, but I don't want to window opening up every time I take one, because it makes it impossible to quickly take screenshots one after another due to having to pause to close the window after each one.

Hi,

This is possible, but it's a little hidden, so here's what you'll need to do:

The first step is to enable our older capture window



then you'll want to turn off preview in editor for the old window



Now Snagit won't open after taking a system screenshot, but the next time you launch Snagit, they'll all show up. I hope this helps!

Ah.  I didn't think to check in the upper menu bar..I almost never access the application that way :) I was looking in the SnagIt->Preferences options within the app.  Thanks!
