Close button not in topmost right position on maximized Snagit Editor window

When the Snagit 13 Editor window is maximized, if you move/flick your mouse cursor to the top-right corner of your screen, as far as it will go, your attempted click on the close button will be unsuccessful. Snagit's close button, even on a maximized window, is located just inside the actual edge.

One of the basic principles of user interface design is that you can make use of the "infinite edge", (i.e. by very quickly moving the mouse cursor to an extreme corner of the screen) to quickly hit UI targets like the close button, without having to slowly and carefully position the cursor. The vast majority of applications honor this design principle (try it out yourself on several other maximized applications). For some reason, Snagit does not.

That's not the behaviour I see on my screen.  In full screen mode or 'minimized' but 1 px off maximised, the close button is completely accessible.

Is you system overscanning perhaps?

@Paul, I'm not sure we're on the same page. If you move your mouse cursor so far into the top-right corner of your screen that you can't even see the mouse cursor anymore (i.e. the infinite edge), then click the left mouse button, are you saying that it closes the window successfully?

For other applications, this will work fine. For Snagit, it does not.

OK, get you now, my bad.

Never used that feature before  - didn't even know it existed
