iMac Snagit 2018: Even with the preview in editor off, editor still opens

I'm both WIndows and iMac Snagit Lover. But with iMac, it simply is not as easy.

And all I want to do is to capture to my iMac clipboard and not open the preview/editor.
You see i have it set to NOT preview  in editor and to send to clipboard.


But it does.
And to top it off, the capture is not in my clipboard, i have to copy it from the editor


Maybe I'm spoiled with the Windows version. Maybe Apple hates Snagit. Whatever, all i need is a quick capture to clipboard and paste without all the rigamarole.
Thanks in advance for any help.
Steph :)

Hi Steph,

How are you starting your capture? With the red button or are you using a hotkey?

AND THAT is the problem. I was starting it with my keyboard keys, Luke. I just discovered that using the red button works fine. I still would like to use the hot-keys and not open the Editor.
One good thing is that the more i try to solve this problem, the more coolness i find in Snag-it. :)

I just wish work would stop getting in my way of playing with Snag-it. lol

Glad you're finding cool stuff!
If you're using hotkeys, then make sure that the preview in editor setting and copy to clipboard settings are the way you want them in the Snagit menu item. If you don't see this menu item, you may have to enable it in Snagit's general preferences.

AhHA that's interesting. I don't see Snag-it in my top Nav bar in my iMac.

I just went into General and  enablee "Capture One-click tab" and WOW there it is!
Years and YEARS i've not had that. No WONDER I could not do the stuff I needed.

WOW I'm back On-Track and Lovin' Snag-it even more.

I started using Snag-it I believe in about 1990 and will stay with you guys FOREVER.
(They plan to bury me with a version of Snag-it so i can clone myself (See Bobiverse))

Thanks Luke: May the Snag-it be with you.
