I see there are a few other global hotkeys that can be setup, is there a way to setup a global hotkey to open/close the snagit editor?

You can create one by making a shortcut to SnagitEditor.exe which is located in your Snagit install folder. Right click the new shortcut and click properties. Click the Shortcut Properties in the Shortcut tab and press the keys you want for your hot keys. Pressing those keys will open the editor.

Look in the Win 7 help file titled: "Create keyboard shortcuts to open programs" for more details.

Hmm, well that did work but it's very slow, like it's having to launch the application, which then realizes another copy is running and tells that to open up instead. I have SnagIt configured to keep the editor running, I'd like to be able to tell the already running editor to open up.

That is what it's doing - launching the app. I don't know of any hot key or how to set one up to open up an already running but minimized editor.

Is this a feature that can be requested?

Sure, I bet TechSmith will consider it.

Customize Global hotkey to open/close to SnagIt Editor.
Open SnagIt Editor hotkey ???? where is.

if I use only SnagIt Editor, how quickly open the hotkey... where is.
Three years have passed and nothing...

Option in the "Choose profile" to add hotkey to open only SnagIt Editor, it can be?

I am guessing after 3 years this is not a priority?
It would so rock if it were possible....

Haha, well, I guess this is not a high priority.  I find that I use the editor not just when I am making captures, but when I want to do simple image editing/annotation.  I guess I can find it in the taskbar, but I'm surprised there isn't a hotkey for it.
