How do you folks make a screen shot of Snagit?

I just posted an answer to a question about Snagit and to do that I needed to take a screenshot of Snagit. (I'm currently using 2019.1.4, 94037) on a Mac with X.13.6)
I've tried this before and failed again because as soon as you try to take a screenshot of Snagit, Snagit is not visible. I am aware of two options: using the Mac's Shift-Command-4 to take a screen shot of a selected region or use Snapz Pro (which I still use for things like this).

So is there some mechanism to let one use Snagit to take a screenshot of Snagit or how do you folks do this?

There will be an option in the program preferences, uncheck the "Hide SnagIt before Capturing"

I'm not sure about Mac, but the Windows version of SnagIt has an option that governs whether its hidden when capturing.



But it doesn't work for everything. Like that dialog I captured. SnagIt let me capture that dialog on the left. but I had to use the Windows Snipping Tool to capture the dialog on the right.

Cheers... Rick :)

Ah, thanks Cyus & Rick. That was what I was looking for.
