Snagit only show a limited number of recent thumbnails in the slide tray. How can I get it to show thumbnails of everything in the autosaved captures folder?

Hey Dave,

I made a quick video of how to view more thumbnails:

If that doesn't help, let me know!

I am unable to view the video. Whenever I open the link it says "We're sorry! We were unable to locate the requested page."
How can I increase the number of thumbnails in the bottom preview pane of Snagit Editor. Right now it is showing a maximum of 25 thumbnails only.
Thanks in advance for your answer.

Hey Logan,

I'm working on a mac and only using Snagit... I'm sorry I wasn't very clear. I can see that if I click on the folder icon above the slide tray that it takes me to the folder where the images are autosaved, I can then find one and clicking on it puts it onto the canvass where I can work on it, etc. Is there any way to expand the number of thumbnails that are available in the slide tray itself.

I'm using the latest Snagit for Mac (OSX 10.9.2) 

I agree with Dave. My issue is with the limited number of screen captures that Snagit stores in the scrolling tray at the bottom. I often need to go back and review past screen caps, but they are gone from the scrolling tray.

Here's what I'd love to see: 

In addition to the "recent" tray/slider, it would be great to have a BUILT-IN gallery viewer as well. I know how to click the folder icon to navigate to the saved directory in the Finder, but having that feature built-into Snagit would be a welcome addition, particular with some sort options.


And while I'm at it, please add the ability to rename Snagit .snagproj files from within Snagit. It's not at all helpful to scrolling through a bunch of filenames that are all dates.

Having the ability to rename the file before you output it would be good, too. Skitch does this, so you can name the file what you want before you drag it to the desktop or Finder.

Concur. Come on, this shouldn't be that hard. This could easily be a setting as far as how many thumbnails it shows. Just changing from 25 or so to 50 or 100 thumbnails would make my life 3x simpler. Going to the library is painful in comparison.
