  • Updated 2 months ago

when i am moving mouse cursor it is not showing x,y coordinates anywhere as I move - previous versions did this - tech support said it's not there anymore - shocking that functionality would be removed!  please add it back asap!

not sure if this is on Mac too - if it's not on Mac either than please put it back there too!

I agree with you.  Why have they removed such a useful feature.

Just to ensure the dev team or whomever sees this thread down the road is fully understanding what you are referring to, is the image below what you are referring to? (Copied it from SnagIt 12 editor)

thanks for following up, but Im not sure, hard to see what you are referring to exactly.  i don't remember where it was exactly in the older version.  i just want to see the x, y coordinates wherever my mouse is when i move around the image..

In the status bar of the editor where the origination point of the superimposed image is. Looks like as the mouse moved, where you see 58,124 changed and likely represented the coordinates (as related to where the mouse pointer was on the image in the editor).

The 31x79 reflects the pixel size of the selected area.

I'm still not seeing coordinates. Here's the use case. I have an image 600x200. In it is the back of a football jersey. I'm going to overlay text onto that jersey to personalize it with someone's last name. I want to place my cursor in the center of that jersey and understand that it's exactly 250, 50

It's because they feature was removed. The image you see earlier in the thread was copied from an older version of SnagIt that offered that feature. It was posted in an effort to ensure this was what the thread was referring to. ;)

As far as the middle of an image, do the snap guides not help if you insert an object on the image?

I'm uploading the image into another platform where the image is overlayed. I need the coordinates to properly place it in another software entirely.
