Even though I toggled off < View | Show Sidebar > menu, placeholder view does not gets removed. I think this is a bug. Not sure if this is the case on windows too.

snagit version is 2019.1.0 (94020)
macos version is 10.14.2(18C54)

I have this problem, too.  I have the same version of SnagIt as you and since I didn't have this problem with the early versions of SnagIt 2018 for Mac, I've got to believe that a bug was introduced into SnagIt some time later.  I just upgraded to macOS 10.14.3 today, but it didn't help with this SnagIt issue.

Hi,

This should be fixed in 2019.1.1 which is available now

I just updated to the 2019.1.1 and I confirm that this issue has been resolved.

In addition, capturing became quick and feels light again. It's been too heavy that it almost felt frozen (mojave).

Thanks for the update.

I also have updated to SnagIt 2019 for Mac 2019.1.1 and I can't quite agree.  Yes, when I select a tool, such as Cut Out and then click on the Show Properties Panel icon on the lower right of the window, the Quick Styles for Cut Out then appears.  However, when I was ready, in SnagIt 2018 for Mac, to close that sidebar, all I had to do was to click on the Show Properties Panel icon again and the sidebar would close and then re-expand the main window to the right.  In SnagIt 2019 for Mac 2019.1.1, clicking on the Show Properties Panel icon (a second time) does nothing.  If I want to close the sidebar window, I need to select the View/Show Sidebar command from the menu bar instead (or Command 4).

Having pointed this out, I like what I'm seeing in SnagIt 2019 for Mac 2019.1.1 so far.  In addition to fixing the sidebar issue that I was having, this release of SnagIt lacks the lag of the previous release and seems much more responsive.  Good job, TechSmith!

I see. I just pressed command+4, but clicking again on those buttons to close the side bar would be great to have!

Significant performance improvement indeed!
