I can't believe all you can do is draw lines to make a triangle!  The you can't fill it!  Come on a triangle is a basic shape.  In the windows version there is a polygon tool at least!

Hi Scott,

Polygon tool is something we hope to add to Snagit on the mac. Unfortunately I don't have a time frame for it, however the more requests we get, the sooner we're likely to prioritize it.

Great News! Polygon tool was released today for mac! It's in our 2018.1.0 update, which is a free upgrade for anyone who already has version 2018, or has a maintenance agreement.

This is a selection tool, correct? How do you draw a filled triangle in Windows version?

But this (in my version anyway) only allows me to create a pre-set image size, not a blank canvas to add an image "to". I am perhaps mis-using the feature or trying to appropriate it for another purpose. But thanks anyway for the quick response.

we're talking Windows right?  You don't get these options?

Yes, cool! that worked, thank you! I misunderstood the original directions and had selected an image size that was too small. Thanks for the screen tips.

It may seem odd that the standard tools like callout boxes etc, don't include a triangle shape.  But there's a reason for that.  Triangles are a friggin' nightmare as the containers for text, unless your text has this kind of shape:
