Image capture default width and height

Hello,

With SnagIt, it would be nice to have a way to "pre-set" both the image "capture width" & "capture height" during a region capture.

For instance, I would like to always capture 460 x 300. I'm not talking about the "repeat capture" feature that repeats the previous capture at the exact same spot.

I would like to move that capture window at will and not have to adjust the capture width & capture height every time ...

I believe you can accomplish that using a preset. You essentially create the preset using the dimensions you want, then when you issue the command to capture from the preset, you get a window of those dimensions that you may freely move around so it surrounds only the bit you want.

Hi Rick, thanks for your suggestion. 

I forgot to mention that I am using MacOS ...

I just checked and I don't see a "fixed region" option from the preset settings. I'm using the latest version of SnagIt for MacOS -- Version 2018.1.1 (90433)

It sounds like MacOS is running behind in the feature set ...

Regards,

Grrrr, lack of feature parity strikes again!

Sorry to waste your time.
