Custom Trim Feature

Since SnagIt is prompting me via its messaging feature to ask for features I'd love to see added or improved, I'm posting this as a new thread that will hopefully be considered for the voting.

Back in 2015 when SnagIt 13 was all new and shiny, I had posted a question in the thread linked below that asked where the Custom Trim feature was.

As you will see in the thread, a TechSmith engineer named Tim suggested an alternate that was supposed to replace the Custom Trim feature.

Note that Custom Trim offered the following dialog and made it super easy to trim edges of the canvas using spin controls. The dialog looked like this:

And in earlier versions, there was even a check box that (when enabled) allowed all four sides to be affected by a single spin control. One pixel at a time.

Part of what made this so handy and unique was the fact that as you clicked the spin controls, you saw the canvas change immediately in real time. With the method proposed by Tim in that thread I linked, you can't see anything change until you click the OK button.

Hopefully others will find this to be a worthy request as well. So please vote. 

Cheers... Rick :)

+1 from me.

Trying to make 1px adjustments with the mouse is like threading a needle, and the suggested workaround doesn't cut it for me.  To use that you have to deduct the required trim from the existing dimension, and taking an unequal number of px's off each side is a PITA too
