Crosshair - Zoomed-in View Finder

  • Question
  • Updated 2 years ago
I may have mistakenly disabled the function/option of having the "circled zoomed in area" (with the crosshairs) when capturing an image.  How would I go about getting that option back? I've attached what I'm referring.  Thanks!

I don't see the attachment, but mine is gone as well (Snagit 4.0.7)
Also, have you seen the keyboard tweek bug?
You're supposed to be able to 'fine tune' the start and end corners by using the arrow keys to 'nudge' your selection start and end points, but when I do this for the start point it messes up the capture. (works on the end point)

Hi,

The zoomed in view, or Magnifier, can be toggled by pressing the 'M' key when you have the crosshairs visible. If you press 'H' when the crosshairs are visible, it will show you a few helpful keys.

Hey Luke that's great! 

Somewhere along the line, I missed that shortcut! Great to have that functionality back!

Thanks for posting this!

I'm a new user to Snagit, so, I'm learning.  I just uploaded the attachment I'm referring.

Awesome, Luke!  That did it...that is, pressing the "M."

Thank you very much!
