Currently, the way to draw curved arrows in Snagit Windows is a bit cumbersome. You need to toggle the "Bezier curve" switch when on the Arrow tool.

Here's a quick video showing it: https://www.screencast.com/t/0S9QkzLnIu

We want to bring an easier way to draw curved arrows to Snagit Windows. Making it closer to Snagit Mac:

This would make it easier and allow for more than two curve control points in Snagit Windows.

This is one of those "No-Brainer" feature changes.

Just do it and quit asking us about it.It looks more like a stall tactic than  a serious question.

We’ve heard this on the forums and in conversations with customers several times recently. And certainly feel the pain ourselves when using arrows. But we were definitely surprised how much love this got. Which is great. That’s exactly why we do this, to hear your voice and learn. This is definitely something we’ll look at further and intend to make a reality. The sheer number of votes will kick this up ahead of some other things on the list. If you’re interested in beta testing functionality like this, respond here and I’ll add you to our beta candidate list.

Thank you!
