I used to change the background of grayscale images to white and the other lines, text, arcs, etc. on the drawing were black so the drawing image will print out and the copy is clear, mostly, if not all, black and white, and readable. How is this done with Snagit version 2019.01?

Hi there

Perhaps try opening the Effects tab (lower right of the SnagIt editor) and choosing Filters, then Invert Colors?

To add to Rick's suggestion above, after you invert the colors go to the Color Adjustment filter
and play with the Brightness, Contrast and Gamma settings to further fine to it.
