I've asked for this minor enhancement several times! Other people want it, also.


In the editor, when selecting part of a graphic or creating a shape, please add the selection size at the bottom of the window. Currently SnagIt only shows the absolute X and Y but this is not very helpful.

For example, if I'm trying to highlight a 100 px x 100 px part of the graphic it would be much easier if I could see how big my selection is as I drag the cursor.

Snag it does do this when in capture mode just not in the editor.
