I bought version 11.  I skipped version 12.  I bought version 13 (BIG mistake)

But I have had enough of version 13's s***e and TechSmith's deafness to user demand

With the licences I have can I downgrade to version 12 which seems by what I have read here to be the last usable release?  Or will I have to drop to version 11

A version 13 key will activate version 12 and any version before that. It's all above board and legal to use it for that purpose as well.

You can download and install a new or an older version from this link.

Paul, stick to 11.4.1. Techsmith has screwed up the new releases so I reverted back to the best version which lets me text capture and is still working good. I bought version 12 on 5/21/2014 but uninstalled it whenTechsmith decides that we did not need the features that exists in the older version. They did some kind of a survey that prompted them to take the useful features out. Techsmith has failed to listen to their users that is apparent by the complains from the users.

I have used SnagIt since it's infancy days but am truly disappointed for them not listening to their loyal users.
