The text capture was important to my use of SnagIt.  Is the prior release with this feature still available?  Can I exchange my version 12 for this version (or request a refund)?

If you have an activation key for SnagIt 11. You can still Download and install it. I don't think you can purchase Older versions anywhere. Version 11.4.3  ( Build 280) will still capture text.

You can download and install a new or an older version from this link. Selecting the "Free Trial" Icon will download the newest version.

If you can't locate your Activation Key use this site for that.

You need to Submit your e-mail address to this Web Page to get your Key.

To the best of my knowledge, you have 30 days to return SnagIt 12. You can contact Techsmith about that.

Regards, Joe

I understand why you like 11.4 as I had 12 as trial for an extended time-have used Snagit since first started- with recognition that I always hate myself during the extended time qhile learning to adjust to new versions.
As to your question & going to 12 was different from typical updates &nI was able to keep 11.4 on my PC. Reading your plea I totally relate to. Once I got rid of that awful dark...it was better but I still haven't figured out to setup my favorite capture that's partly a custom scroll, used that constantly. I have a question in with support now, trying to get that back. They're a great group, keep good records & ought to be able to help OR ADD what you want-make certain to explain IN DETAIL!
The benefit after using Snagit til you're adept with it- at least with me, I'll always feel that my use of my PC is worlds above all those poor souls who have not discovered the best PC software on the market!
I hope you get what you need but I cannot help with that. Snagit will either be adapted, be updated to suit you or & this isn't the best option at all or you can downgrade to 11.4?? Good luck. Sandra

I too tried 12  hell i may have even bought it and then reverted to 11.4-- Sure hope there has not been a management change or philosophy change at TechSmith. Snagit is one of my favorite programs and replacing it will be a pain.  The thing i liked up until 12 was the intuitive flow of the program.

Keys are backwardly compatible. So a Snagit 12 key will also unlock Snagit 11. The site for downloading the older versions was already posted.

I uninstalled 12 and installed 11 with the old key (hoping it would work) and all is good.  Thanks for your help.  I really missed the text capture feature & I'm glad to stick with 11 until TechSmith comes to their senses and realized the value of this feature and re-inserts it in their product line.
