Most apps that have quick access links in the Mac menu bar allow that icon to keep running when the app is closed. I don't always want the SnagIt application running in my dock, though I do always want SnagIt accessible. Can you change SnagIt to keep the menu bar icon working when the App is closed?

Upon joining the Snagit:mac team almost a year ago, this feature became a personal priority.  I've posted regarding this topic a couple times in an attempt to convey we were listening and understood the importance of this issue to serious Mac users.  Today, 11/19/2013, I'm happy to announce this feature is implemented in version 2.2.0 available here:

To configure Snagit to "Keep Menu Bar icon running..." and launch the editor only when you need it, see below:

Thank you for your patience.  We are listening.
