Hi, I don’t need support, but do recommend that next edition of Snagit do not have hotkey for video or stop using shift command.

DON’T USE “shift + V” or “shift + S” or shift command in any other hotkey combination.

Be course it interfere with windows standard shift command in every other program, from standard office, to drawing / illustrations-programs etc.. that you can’t write big S or V, as my problem was.. when the Snagit program was open. I had to solve the problem with Microsoft, and we found out that Snagit overrule shift command in every other program used in windows. In some weeks until discovering the “sinner” I had to use caps lock and write majuscule S or V.

Make sure using commands that not often used in normal editing/writing in other programs.

Hopefully you are aware that you are able to open the preferences for SnagIt and configure the unwanted hotkeys to "None". Just clear the check mark and click the drop-down to choose None.



Cheers... Rick :)

Hi Rick, - yes off course, but after some month, and if you don’t use Snagit every day, you forget what command option you have set for hotkey., especially if you are +50 (but still young and strong :-))

Normally I use Snagit 2-3 times a week at least, and mostly as great tool for copying images and text for lecture or placed in my own library storage for future know how etc...

I think in my first message indicate that I know how to set commands for hotkey.

And as told: I DO NOT NEED HELP :-) :-)  the commend was for other users that might have the same or could have the same problem in the future.

Rick, many thanks for the answer, and the image.

Best regards from Denmark.
