Feature Request: I want any screenshots to SAVE to SNAGIT, but I don't want to have to SEE it right then. (Keep Snagit in the background so I can keep working, then look at the screenshots in Snagit later).

This is already in the product, I’m not near my Mac right now, but from memory look for the snag it capture window, then look at the bottom, you can save capture profiles and assign a keyboard shortcut to them.

For that profile be sure to turn off the ‘show editor’ slider.

Here's a screenshot of  a profile edit (this one is from windows)
Note you can choose the selection type, apply an effect like a border, auto copy to clipboard, and my favorite: the share option can auto save to a file, paste your screencap to a MS word document, upload it to a service, etc...

Unfortunately this doesn't do what I need it to do. I'd spoken with support yesterday & they said after I tried this option that I'd have to create a feature request because it doesn't exist. You'd think it would, but I'm not sure if it's because I use a key combination to take a screenshot of a specific selected area & then it goes through apples screenshot protocol, then moves on to snagit or what, but it still opens it in Editor after it has taken the screenshot. Thanks though & if anyone else has a trick for me to try I'd love to hear it.
