I just upgraded from version 2018.0.2 to 2018.1.0. Where do I find what is new and how to use the new features? I tried "Help/What's New" and tapped on the "What's New" tab, but found nothing new.

Hello Bob,
You can find some information in our online Snagit Help (Windows) topics discussing how to turn Canvas Snapping on or off.  

It is located under #2 Canvas - Tips for Working on the Canvashttps://support.techsmith.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000743351-Introduction-to-Snagit-Editor 

Once Snapping is enabled (should be on by default), you will see guide lines appear as you move your objects around the Canvas when Snagit recognizes an opportunity to align it to other objects on the Canvas.

Changes to how Snagit auto-selects Microsoft Word and Microsoft Powerpoint windows during capture is a software improvement that cannot be enabled or disabled but should assist our users who have experienced issues with this in the past.
