Insert capture time/date stamp automatically.

I love SnagIt. I've been using it for years and have been watching it evolve into the wonderful product that it is now. There's just one thing I'd like to be able to do -- automatically add the capture time/date to the screen capture so I don't have to manually insert it in a text box. Would like to be able to just click an "insert" button, then click the location where it should go, and have the time/date stamp inserted in the font/size I have pre-selected.

Hi K,

Great news, Snagit has this option available for you already! The Caption option is available pre-capture in the Effects dropdown menu, like so:

There are many of options in there to play with, hopefully you can find just what you are looking for.

Once you get your settings customized the way you want them, you can save that as a custom profile, so it always available whenever you want a caption for your captures. You can learn more about creating Custom Profiles here:

Thank you for using Snagit!

in the latest wersion of snagit that's a PITA:

Effects can only be applied to image captures. To apply effects to video captures, share the video capture to Camtasia Studio
