'Text Highlighter' his was a very valuable tool and feature to be able to highlight an area of text within a screen capture. No longer available in 2020.1.0. Tries using rectangle fill with opacity level options but it's just not the same.


Why was the highlighter tool removed?

Hi there,
You are correct... it was just moved. However, you can customize your toolbar so it stays at the top. At the bottom of the MORE menu, choose CUSTOMIZE (#3) and drag the highlight option there in the place you desire. The tool will appear on the toolbar now (#4).

Thanks for using Snagit!

Hi Dennis

I upgraded just yesterday and my highlighter tool is still there. So I am doubtful anything was removed.

Did you check the "More" drop-down?
