How to automatically resize a captured image using Snagit for Mac via a preset

hello Snagit for Mac mavens

I'm a longtime SnagIt user who recently moved from a Thinkpad to a MacBook Pro.  I just purchased and installed SnagIt for Mac.

On my Thinkpad I use a Preset to automatically resize captured images to 800 x 800 and add a torn edge

On the Mac, I see how I can add a torn edge
However I do not see not how to resize the scale of the image to 800 x 800.

Is it possible and I'm just not seeing it on the Mac?

Under the edit menu in the editor, is a "Resize Image" option that will scale whatever you have to the new resolution.

Under the Tools Menu, there is an option to crop,  which lets you reduce the size of the image by discarding a portion of the top, bottom, left or right (or any combination).

I do not think there is a way to include the crop/resize in a preset, so you'll have to do these interactively.

darn.    Yes I've done it manually a ton but I'd love to do it via a preset like what I have on the PC version of SnagIT.

I see there is a hotkey though
