I have SnagIt installed on two computers. I'm preparing for a trip and want my laptop to contain all of the contents of the SnagIt Library on my desktop. How do I do that?

Under File, Editor Preferences, Click the Library Tab. 
You will see the Library location.
Copy the contents of that location to the other computer in the same location by:
Under Library location you will see a Backup/Restore option.
Make a backup of the first location and do a Restore in the second computer.

Thank you. I found it under the Edit menu. I was able to export and import all of the files except for the JPG files.

Bob X 2, I use a sync program that always keeps my library locations folders on two devices up to date. in my case I store my backup file in "D:\Documents\Snagit\Datastore\".

Try a sync program that will allow you you to sync files and folders.

Bob Lewis, I have all the sync programs but my favorite is Allway Sync. It is cheap and fast. Buy the PRO version for the full functionality. It is one time fee with lifetime upgrades.
