I upgraded my v 12 to 13 on my DEV box. Both versions are available for use (thank goodness). I just noticed that the Flag category in the Library is gone in v13. When v13 was installed, it apparently copied all of my settings from v12 (nice touch thank you!) so I can close v13 and open v12 and use it. I captured a pic that shows both versions of my library. And yes, I have a lot of pics in my library. So where did the Flags classification go?

Flags have been combined with Tags in 13.0.  Your existing Flags should now be listed under the Tags category.

This is a big downgrade.  Whereas I could quickly browse my library for images with certain flags, that is impossible now. I used to mark images as "important" and now the tag isn't as useful.

For instance, when browsing my library for images to delete, I cannot see tags.  Please bring flags back.

I am PISSED OFF.  TAGS ARE NO Substitute.  FLAGS would Display ATOP a recent Capture.   TAGS do not.   When I have many RECENT Captures I like to Flag items that are related.   Your TAGS are not ATOP the recent Captures, but underneath it and not visible.    I complained about this and someone made a decision to remove it because they deemed it not important on your end.   Let me tell you something.   YOU SHOULD NOT REMOVE a feature from software when a new versions come out.   You have now, removed the reason we need SNAGIT.  I can use GREENSHOT for free.  But,  guess what.  I need the FLAGS.   I will be completely, conveying your business practice and Lame replacement of TAGS.   (Sure,  TAGS are great)  but you do not show those TAGS on top of a Recent SNAG in the Tray.   THAT IS THE DAMN PROBLEM.   Now fix it,  or be prepared to lose clients, because I will start a campaign over this.   And yes I do QA.   When Snagit 14 comes out,  what are you planning to remove from it without notice?   A little FLAG feature, you remove that has a huge impact will have a bigger impact for Techsmith with negative publicity.   I want this Back.   FIX IT.  You close my ticket indicating it was replaced with TAGS.   Wrong.....   Different Functionally.   Wake up.....  Who is the name of the person that heads the department who decides what to remove from your software.  I want to speak with him or her personally.    I pay for Version 12, have Flags.  I pay for 13 and I lose function(s).   Really.  Come on....  Do something about this.  I will be relentless.

I agree with Tony. I'm pretty upset now that I've upgraded and discovered that flags are missing!
