Font size limit on mac

Since updating to Snagi 2018, the font size editor seems to max out at 300 pt. If I manually enter in a larger size, say 450 pt, it just reverts to 300 pt. Does anyone know how to work around this? It's happening with all fonts.

Hi,

Sorry about this! I don't think there's a workaround, but we should be able to raise the limit of how large a font can be. Do you have a rough idea of the largest font you might ever need?

I use Snagit to creat tshirt designs so a font size of up to 1000 pt would be great. The previous version of Snagit didn't have this limitation. Is this a bug or by design?

It was a design change that was made a few years ago (version 4.0 I think) when we re-did our font properties to be inside Snagit instead of using Apple's floating panel. As far as I know, this is the first time we've heard a need for larger fonts, but there's no reason to cap it at 300, so we can look into raising that number.

Hi,

We just pushed out an update to Snagit 2019 that allows for much larger fonts. We will be bringing this change to 2018, but I don't know when that update will go out.

Good news! The font limit has been raised in 2018 as well, as of the 2018.2.7 update.
