How can I keep my custom properties of the tools after a capture?

  • Updated 2 months ago
I'm using Snagit for more than 10 years and I am not very satisfied with the latest version of Snagit 2018.2.0.1511, because it doesn't keep the properties of the tools used last time. I was very used to having a Tool with my defined properties and now although you can set them up and save them in the Quick Styles, you must continuously open the properties tab to select the style you usually use.
Now every time a new capture is taken you need to change the properties of the Tool when with the previous version the tool kept the same setup of the last capture. This inconvenient and the fact that now you have to accept the capture with the new capture bar provoques loosing a lot of time. 
Is there any solution to those problems? For me this version is the worse I have used

This is a know program bug.

For now, the best thing to do is revert to 2018.1 as this Support Article suggests.  https://support.techsmith.com/hc/en-us/articles/360004952012-Snagit-Windows-Quick-Style-Is-Not-Remem...

Just for your information I want to inform you that 3 months ago I reported this problem and the answer of Techsmith Support was that I had a problem with the settings of my computer.
