fixed region on mac

  • Question
  • Updated 3 weeks ago
I cannot find a way to set a fixed region for a screen shot. I just purchased a mac and cannot find the option where it was on Windows. I used to have a windows laptop before this, and the option was available.

Does Mac not allow Snagit to use Fixed region feature?

Hi,

Snagit mac does not have fixed region yet, but we have seen a number of requests for it, so it is on our radar.

I too need this feature and consider it important. Please make it available on macOS. Thanks!

Hi,

Snagit Mac now has a repeat last capture feature, where you can make a selection and then hit control-shift-R to take the same capture again. Let us know if this solves your needs.

This is exactly what I've been looking for with this product. I spend the majority of my day deploying solutions for clients via remote sessions with their servers, and I document each step via screen captures. I've been having to manually outline regions for each capture, which takes time. When moving through a deployment wizard (as an example), the dialog boxes are consistently sized and located, so the Repeat Last Capture method works perfectly and significantly speeds up my documentation time! 

Thank you Luke.

You really need to add this feature to the Mac version. It's a very necessary feature for people who do lots of the same size screen shots. Without it - this app isn't very beneficial to me.

The only thing worse than not having a feature is having it, and it not being obvious. Sort of.

I need to make 16 versions of the SAME graph for a cookbook and bought SnagIt SPECIFICALLY to be able to capture the same region multiple times... and it's not there. Sort of.

Hi,

Sorry we don't have the full fixed region feature yet, it is something we'd like to add. I'm not sure what you mean by sort of, but have you found the Repeat Last Capture feature? You'll have to do the first screenshot manually, but then after that you can press control shift R to repeat that last capture. I hope this helps

Still no fixed region after 3 years now, we paid good money for this software, why is it so hard to sort this out?
