Your help is most appreciated!

Now I`v stumbled upon a new difficulty: I need to scroll capure not an entire web page, but a region within, which also shows the full text only by using the scroll bar on the right... My task is to save the text of personal messages on the mobility platform, which will be shut down and completely deleted by the end of January 2016 already!

I see you have posted in this other post: that explains we do not offer Custom Region Scroll in Snagit on the Mac OS.  However, for others who might find this post, I will add some of that content here along with links for getting more help.


No, custom scrolling is not available in Snagit Mac. As for your
original question, no there isn't a way to capture only the selected
text on a web page. Scrolling capture works by taking a series of
captures while scrolling down the page and tying them all together, or
by grabbing the entire page at once (as is the case with Firefox).

If you only want to capture a portion of the page and it all fits within
the window, the best thing to do is take a region capture by clicking
and dragging out the area you want to capture like this:

If it doesn't fit on a single page, then unfortunately we don't have any
feature that's going to accomplish that for you other than scrolling
capture. If scrolling capture is getting more than you want, however,
you can crop out the unwanted areas or select, copy, and paste the
wanted areas to a new canvas. Like this:

That is the first time that has ever described. I and I guess a million others Though that you clicked on the Command the you started scrolling and would capture everything you scrolled to. The way you describe You can do about the same thing as Shift-control-copy. It might take you 50 tries to get everything.
