Hi Guys,

Re: How to reduce gap between Callout shape and text within it.

How can I to reduce gap between Callout shape and text within it?

As you can see from the screenshot attached, Snagit has a big gap between the text and callout shape.  Is there any setting to control this?

Snagit 13.1.3

Example #2. Just drag the handles on the right to eat up the space. Am I understanding the issue?

 SnagIt has a bug. Some callouts won't allow the text to fill the callout from left to right.
That particular callout you have pictured in your image is one of those callouts.
If you changed it's shape to a similar one you can achieve closer to the desired results.



Make sure the padding is set to "0"
It appears to me you've already done that in your screen shot.

There's an existing thread that discusses this issue at length and I am not sure how that currently stands in the ranking of ideas to make it into the monthly roundups.  I will go look for it and link it here.  Then maybe you could add your vote for it?

Here is a link to the existing topic. Everybody seemed to think it is a bug and I had already reported it as such but I have no idea where we stand on a fix.  Maybe Chris Larson - Product Manager can advise us?
