i captured(recorded) several pages from left to right through the panomaric view. I manually pressed the arrow to get to the next page. The output i get, is only the first page. Anyone who can help me with this? is it somehow possible to capture pages from left to right besides capturing 400 times the region i need?

What are you capturing? If it is a web page panoramic will do the job but it sounds like you are capturing something else. If a web page can you provide a link and let us look at it?

If the pages are all side by side and yo can scroll through them, panoramic should work but if you have to change pages manually ... it may not be suitable for that as it's purpose is to scroll through a continuous area. But ... someone in here may have a work around

Yeah, panoramic requires you to use mouse control to move around the screen and you must do all the movement on either the x or y axis before doing the other.  So I am not sure whether panaomaic will work for your use case.

You can create a "Fixed Region" Profile.

Start by setting up custom a profile with "Image & Fixed Region" selected.



Then, open the the drop down menu to get to the settings.


Select the area you want to capture.



Assign a keyboard shortcut is easiest.You will be saving them one image at a time.
Maybe you shouldn't  let them open in the editor?
Save them to a folder.
It all depends on what your doing with them, how many captures you're taking and all that.

What's nice about fixed regions and I forgot to mention.
You can change/update the area at any time.
Just  "Re-select" Select Region, make the selection and it's ready to go. So if you saved a custom profile, it's a quick process.

I TAKE IT BACK,  change the selected region at your own risk.

I just did that, crashed SnagIt 6 or 7 times. No big deal. Well, it locked up and wouldn't do anything.
It turned my desktop wallpaper image to black & white while it sat there doing nothing.Odd.

So I tried the Esc key and I got cross hairs.Selected a random area and got a new selected area.
All seemed well. Closed the Manage Profiles Window and a there was a large black rectangle burned into my wallpaper the size of the editing window. I had to restart my computer to get it to go away.
My other monitor was fine. They share the same image.

I don't know what's up with that profile.But it doesn't like being modified.

You can capture the first page using region capture, click the "next" arrow in your content, then hit CTRL-Shift-R to repeat the last capture. Toggling off "Preview in Editor" in Snagit's capture window will also speed this task.

Another option: use Snagit to record a video as you page through the content. Then in Snagit editor, scrub to each of the frames you want and click the PNG button to save out that frame to your tray as a PNG:
