Hotkey to Capture to Clipboard Only

I'd like to use a hotkey to copy my capture to the clipboard. I rarely use the SnagIt editor. Is there a way to do this. I'm not seeing a way to set the destination of capture. I'm using v2018.1.1 purchased just a few weeks ago.

Thx.

Hey there, you sure can. When you bring up SnagIt, go to Manage Presets (you can see I've set one up called "Copy Image." Now, all I have to do is select that instead of the red button, and it is automatically set to copy whatever I capture the clipboard, ready for me to paste into an email, a word doc, a slide, wherever. 

In Manage Presets, you can set several "automatic" functions with the capture button, including copy to clipboard. And you can add a hotkey to any of these - whatever you'd like it to be.


Happy capturing!

I have it set up to go to the clipboard and reduce to 500 px tall (which suits my purposes)
I have found that yes, it bypasses the editor but when you open the editor all those captures are there

Figured it out. Need to add the keyboard shortcut here:



The presets are not immediately visible. UI is getting better but could still use a few tweeks.
