reasons I dislike the new version of snagit - anyone who has workarounds or tips for me please reply!
1) in the past all I had to do was hit the Print Screen button on my keyboard to activate snagit (1 click). I would highlight what I wanted copied (second click), it would automatically open up in snagit ready for me to right-click to copy (three clicks in total).
Now I have to first open up snagit because it won't activate just by clicking on print screen (1 click), then I have to wait for it to load, then I have to go to the top of my screen and click the red button, (2nd click) then I have to highlight what I want to take a screen shot of (third click), then I cant just go and paste it, I then have to hover over the camera icon and click on that to open the image in snag it (fourth click), and then I can copy it (fifth click and patience is officially lost because of how long everything takes to load and get to the point of pasting elsewhere.
2) in the past, if I wanted to expand the image's white space while editing the screen shot in snag it, I would just drag the white boxes in the corners of the image to expand the white space. Now some genius decided the extra white space should be a gray and white checker box design, therefore making your image look like it's sloppily copy/pasted. So now to avoid that because I played around and couldn't see any preference menu from whence I can remove the selection for the stupid checkerbox pattern so now I take the screen shot, copy then open up the paint program and paste there and expand white area there if needed.
I use snag it and now paint at least once a day for little things and I officially hate all the stupid "enhancements" that took an efficient tool and made it way less functional. Writing down this feedback in case anyone at snagit cares to see
