Currently, SnagIt for Windows does not allow a capture to be saved to SnagIt Editor *and* automatically place in the clipboard. Please allow this feature.

A great product, THANKS!

Hi all- Great news! In the new Snagit 13 (Win) and Snagit 4 (Mac) released today there’s now an easy way to send a capture to the clipboard AND into the editor...without opening the editor. The new capture window has two simple toggles so you can set these options on the fly and change them whenever you like.

You can also bake the settings into a preset (what used to be called profile), which can be triggered by a hotkey, a click on the preset, or the big, red button. Here’s how to create presets in Snagit 13 and Snagit 4.

Thanks for sharing your suggestions and details about your workflow...and thanks for your patience! Personally, this is one of my favorite features of the new version because my most common workflow (capture-paste) is super fast but when I do need to edit or mark up, the capture is right there in Editor. Best of both worlds!
