I am trying to capture a cascading menu on Siemens NX 9.0 using Snagit 12.2.2 but it does not work. I just upgraded to Windows 8 and Snagit seems to have lots of problems. Does anyone have an answer?

You should be able to open the cascading menu to the point that you want to make the capture. Then just hit the "Print Screen"  key and select your capture area.

Assigning a keyboard Short cut to the Image capture profile will do the same. That way you could also select weather you want to capture the cursor in the Image  or not. 

Regards, Joe

You can assign the "Print Screen" command to the default image capture profile. Just follow the steps in the image below, Click to enlarge.
Following steps 3 through 7 will allow you to assign the "Hot Key" of your choice to the Image capture profile.

OMG..I love you! This has been making me crazy in v. 12!!! It doesn't work like the old version and I could not figure it out! Thank you!!!! Not sure why they changed it; it is not an improvement.

This has been very helpful. Why does the Delayed Menu Capture profile not work?

You should be able to navigate to the  'Delayed Menu Capture" profile. Click on it and that will start a 5 second countdown to capture. See Image Below, Click to Enlarge.
The BIG RED Button only does one capture style. All other profiles are either selected or have keyboard shortcuts assigned to them.

I have tried this, but SnagIt doesn't allow me to then take the image that I want; it decides what image on the screen should be captured. I did use the Print Screen answer and that worked for me, but I don't think that is how this should work, personally.

I've tried it many times and all it does is count down and then displays a Unable to capture error message.

My problem is that it would just "decide" what it wanted to capture, instead of allowing me to take the shot I wanted. The Print Screen works, but not a logical step at all. Fix this, Tech Smith!!!

Hi,
There are a couple of tricks or nuances to this cature.

  1. I think you might not have the timer set. I have the timer set to 5 second delay to give me time to open the menu.
  2. Also, you need to set the menu preference to capture the main bar if you want that part.
  3. And, you have to ensure the capture window is AWAY from your menu or else it will get in the way.
  4. Finally, where ever your mouse is, THAT is where the capture is taken. So, you want to open the menu then pause on the last part of the menu until the capture is taken.
I have made a video here that shows a successful menu capture process.
