I just upgraded to version 18 on windows 10 and have had almost all versions since the beginning. Thanks so much for bringing the text capture back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

Please consider implementing Item (2) sometime soon.


I create the PowerPoint presentation for my church announcements and after the bulletin secretary sends me the bulletin, I have to capture the front page information, which needs to be the same size week after week for the PowerPoint. Once I create a space for the picture captured, I need to have each weeks capture the same size (same proportions also).

If I had the right size set up to capture, it would be nice if the user could (1) save that W x H numbers (and name the settings) to use again and again and (2) If I could adjust the capture frame with the arrow keys in small increments after moving the frame with the mouse to the general area. Genealogy captures would also be useful for the same request and anything else that a person has to capture repeatedly. I know I could adjust it in the editor, but that makes it a two step process and a waste of time. Snagit editor does not do a good job yet as to doing this so have to load Photoshop to get it done. Being able to use the arrow keys for very small movements up, down, right and left would be an answer to the problem, but being able to set certain frame sizes, save them,  name then and recall them for that field would be so useful.

In short, only item 2, micro movement with arrow keys would be the most important change. I have waited and hoped for (2) to be built in and still waiting and hoping. :-)

1. Go to open capture window and under selection make sure region is selected and click the gear tab and select fixed region and set to whatever you desire.

Then click the +preset at the bottom left and select new preset from current settings and name it what you desire so you will know what it is later.

2. Hold down the Ctrl key when moving and will move in micro increments.
