Snagit — Allow creation of custom flags and renaming of existing ones. Keywords are fine, but one-click flags would be more useful if we could rename them and create our own.

Custom tags would be very useful! In fact, if this was in SnagIt 11, I would upgrade immediately!

Tags and keywords have different applications, and satisfy use cases where they can be used together. The visual indicator in the library browser in nice.

Take a look at the Tags feature in OneNote 2010. It is well implemented, and easy to customize.

Consider this case:
1.) Use keywords to categorize related images for a project that may be stored in various folders.
2.) Use tags to flag status - in work (needs to be edited), released (ready to use), used (embedded in a document), to delete, etc.

I have been using the standard tags, but for purposes other than their name would indicate - even allowing the user to rename them would be a good start.

Custom Flags is vital for me. We are a software development firm. We have a need to flag designs for all sorts of reasons. Bug/errors and Sent are the only ones that fit neatly.

Using keywords is good if I want to categorize, but is not useful for tracking status.

Are you considering this option? If so, do you have an ETA?
