Cannot see size of cutout when using the tool in Snagit 13.0.3

I have to frequently cut out a mid-section in screenshots. For consistency I want to always cutout a 100pixel section. When using the cut out tool there does not appear to be anywhere that shows me the size of the cutout as I drag it.
This would be a seemingly easy thing to add. Have the size appear just like it does when you're using the selection tool.ie. in the bottom right corner of the cutout area.

Hi there

I totally agree this could be a useful feature.

Have you developed any workaround for this? If so, that's awesome and perhaps you could share with us what you are doing to overcome this limitation.

If not, I will suggest one here. You could create an image that is exactly 100 pixels tall. Save it as a Stamp. Then add it to whatever image you need to obtain the precise 100 pixels. You then could flatten it and use it as a guide for removing the unwanted bits.

Cheers... Rick :)

Hi Rick,

I've been doing something similar as a workaround. I have been using the selection tool to cut a section of exactly 100px and then simply using Ctrl+X to cut it out. I use the Cutout tool to then remove the transparent section. Almost the same as what you're suggesting but I had not thought of the stamp idea. That's cool.

Either way, it's a few more clicks then it should be :)

Cheers

Anthony

Great idea! I'm adding it to the list of things to consider for the upcoming releases.

 Why I can not write in the program
When I write only the first letter and the rest of the lettering is not working
So I do writing in another program and copy and paste words in this program
That bothers me?
