Issue when using drag and drop - spellcheck marks get included in final image

I've been using SnagIt's ability to drag from the recents tray and drop into other applications. Seems to be a marvelous way to save the steps of saving and naming the image, then from the receiving app (normally my browser) I just drop it in and no longer have to click a link or button, then navigate to and choose the image.

And I just noticed an issue today with this. I had added a callout and the callout had flagged the word tooltip as being misspelled using the little red squiggly underline. That's fine while I'm editing, but it was also present in the image as it pasted into the application.

I'm not sure how much control the devs have over this aspect, but it sure would be nice if the red underline weren't present in that final dragged and dropped image. 

And yes, I'm aware that the workaround is to disable the spell checker temporarily or to add the suspect word to the dictionary. And that actually brings me to a suggestion. Have a button that would be able to open the dictionary if you managed to mistakenly add a word and you needed or wanted to remove it from the dictionary.

Thanks for reporting the spell checker issue. It's on the list for engineering to look into.
