Cursor Disappears After Region Capture

I've been working with all the latest versions of Snag-It for years including the latest update and the Cursor capture function does not work on both my Mac and PC. I need it to work on Windows 10. When you use REGION capture, the cursor looks as if it will be a part of the capture and then disappears when the capture is finished. Yes, the Capture Cursor switch is on, I've toggled many display controls within Windows 10 as well as Snag-It. It is not a version thing since this behavior appears consistent for the last year.

Just an observation here, but it seems to me that region capture would always omit the cursor. I say this because at the time you begin the capture process, you move the cursor to the initial region start point, then click and drag until you have selected the region. So when you are clicking and dragging to select the region, you have effectively removed the cursor from the capture area.

Perhaps the workaround is to create a cursor stamp and add it to the capture once finished?

Cheers... Rick :)

No, Rick, cursor capture is a normal feature in SnagIt that used to work reliably in earlier versions. It's a specific option that can be set in Region capture.
