How do I display archive access button on the quick access tray in the newest version (like it is in Mac V2.3)?

I like being able to click the access archive button from the quick access tray that brings up a list of all past snagits where I can enlarge the preview and quickly scroll through the list until I find the one I want to bring back into the editor. 

I don't see this button in the most recent mac version, is there a way to choose to have it display in the new version?

Hi!

In version 4.1.1, you can right-click on any of the unsaved capture thumbnails in the recent captures tray and choose "Reveal in Finder". This will open Finder to Snagit's auto-save directory like the button you pointed to in versions 1-3. 

Let me know if you have any additional questions!

That'll work (assuming I can remember that).

I take it I cant add a button to the space above the capture tray that will do the same thing?

Thank you

I suggested this feedback to our product owner such that you would be able to add the "Reveal in Finder" button to the top toolbar as an option. But correct, currently there isn't a way to get that exact functionality back. I'll keep you posted if/when this ability is added in. And as Doug mentions, you can use the new library to access auto-saved captures with their associated metadata and location. 

Thanks!

Version 4.x.x added a Library button to the toolbar that displays a complete view of that same directory within Snagit. From the 4.0.0 release notes:
New Library
  • Browse, search, organize, and tag captures
  • Batch export images
