Add lines or arrows to Step Tool

Most of the time, when I need to number steps in a screen capture, I also need to draw a line or arrow pointing to the specific part of the image.  It would be incredibly helpful to have an enhanced Step Tool that has a node on each "Step" that can easily be dragged to form that kind of a pointer.  For example, if you look at the Step Tool page in the Snag It Help system, every "step" in the accompanying image has just that type of attached line!

Great feedback and a nice example showing its use. I can see how this type of feature could be very helpful. I'll pass this along to the the team.

Has this basic feature been implemented yet?
If so, what version of Snagit did it first appear?
That image from the help page is so misleading!!

Hi there

No changes have occurred to the step tool to include lines. Sorry

Perhaps it will be implemented in the next release? Only TechSmith knows for sure.

Cheers... Rick :)
