I've just downloaded Snagit after a few years of non-use (retired), but there used to be a 'scrolling capture' option when I used a PC. Super-handy function. I'm on a Mac now too so let me know how you go.

Perhaps consider the "Panoramic" type of capture? You start the capture, then scroll the hidden parts of the image into view and SnagIt magickally puts it all together.

It's under Panoramic capture. Try one and you'll see an instruction video pop up telling you how to start one and complete it. I followed the directions, set the width and then just scrolled down with the mouse wheel to the depth I needed. Sample capture just now- https://imgur.com/a/n8pvk  Its a super handy feature IMO.

EDIT- piferstone beats me to it ;)

Hi,

Snagit mac does still have the automatic scrolling feature but you may have to enable it. Did you download Snagit from the Mac App Store, or from the TechSmith website?

Yes the mac version is supposed to have it But I have it yet to get it to work, you are supposed to be able to scroll and capture at the same time I've tried several times just to see it in action. I've yet to see it happen.

@pjonescet, it works, I just downloaded Snagit for Mac and have supplied a sample screenshot from my MBP in my reply above along with some tips.
