Include different tip types for the 'Pen' tool in Snagit

I'd love to see the pen tool in Snagit developed so that you have different styles (pen tips) so you can mark up screenshots differently.

Currently you only have a basic round pen and I find I'm hoping over to MS Paint for a few brushes.

Taking a totally random screenshot and pretending to mark it up in Snagit you only have the round pen...


But in Paint you can choose from a few brushes (some totally the same as each other)...


And can mark up a screenshot with a different style.  I've really keen to see a chisel tip pen (or fountain pen/calligraphy pen) so you can get different thicknesses on curved lines/arrows/text...

...just looks a bit more interesting visually!  The calligraphy pen style looks similar to the circle stamp/accent...


It's the small things.

I concur. This would be a nice add.

I've noticed that Paint 3D in Windows 10 has a very nice set of brushes. The Calligraphy Pen looks great for marking things up digitally.
