How to create a profile that only copies to the clipboard?

I used to have a profile to take a screenshot that is copied to the clipboard without being saved in Snagit. I used the as a replacement for the “Print” key, with the ability of easily targeting portions of the screen with Snagit's selection tool.

After switching to a new computer, I'm unable to set up such a profile again. I can easily get Snagit to copy the image to the clipboard, but how can I prevent these pictures from showing up in the Snagit Editor?

If you create a preset to only capture to the clipboard and NOT "Preview in Editor"

Than the capture will not be in Snagit.

I just created the preset I shown above and it doesn't get saved in Snagit anywhere for me. Not even in the library or Recent tray.

I do have Automatically save options Un-checked in the Editor preferences.
Which do not always obey that choice though.



Maybe see if those are on and Un-check them to see if that makes a difference.
