Keep .snag files when using "save as" feature

This seems to have been discussed at length over the years, but I want to bring it back up.

When using the "save as" feature the .snag file is removed from the library.  I propose this should change.

Whenever discussed previously, a common response is that the library is to be considered a temporary store of unsaved captures and as soon as an image is saved elsewhere it is no longer required in the library.  I propose that many people do not use the library in this manner and we treat it as a single destination for keeping captures in one place in an easily searchable format.  Once an image is in my library I know where to find it, I can re-use it as an asset and I expect for it to always be there.

Please consider adopting the library as a permanent asset library and preventing Snagit from deleting the .snag files when saved elsewhere in another format.

Interesting that the Mac version already has this feature!  So would TechSmith consider implementing the same functionality in the Windows version?
