Cropping objects? No way?

Hello,
I am new to work with SnagIt. I am looking for a way to crop an object in the editor. Am I missing something? Even if I crop an document and put it into an other document, the already cropped image appears uncropped again.

It would be helpful if you were able to tell us exactly how you are trying to crop at the moment.

Hello, by selecting the object and looking how I could crop it with the handles, but I only can resize and distort, but not crop.

You need to make sure you choose the crop tool from the menu first.  This guide is still fairly accurate https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b4CaLB-5kW4&t=169s

Hi Matthew

I suspect that CB Crew has perhaps dropped a second image atop the first and perhaps wants to crop the floating image on the canvas. And the crop tool does not work for that. It only works for the overall canvas. ;)

Cheers... Rick :)

@Rick, thank you. You brought it to the point. I want to crop the second image atop, not the main image.
