Love Snagit, but miss Ctrl+Shift+P

  • Updated 4 years ago
Hi - I have tried to follow the instructions in this post: https://feedback.techsmith.com/techsmith/topics/how-do-i-set-ctrl-shift-p-to-my-profile, but cannot seem to get SnagIt to accept Ctrl+Shift+P as my shortcut.  I get the same error (hotkey already assigned to another program) no matter what combination of things I've tried.

Do I need to remove all profiles?  Do I need to remove all old versions of SnagIt first?

Please let me know.
Gary.

Good day,

That message would indicate this is not an issue with Snag-It itself. Have you since installed another program that the Ctrl + Shift + P combination is committed to? It seems you have two options:

1. Determine which program has this combination tied up and undo it if possible.

2. Select a different combination to assign for Hot key.

TIP: I use Ctrl + Shift + Z as they are close together and I can do it with one hand.

If the combination is assigned to another application, what happens when you simply press that combination?

I laugh that I didn't think to include such a simple instruction!

That's why I call myself simple simon!

Lord knows I've been guilty myself on so many occasions of what I call "Trying to change the spark plugs by reaching through the tailpipe!"

Hope your day is awesome! Rick :)

Ok I had version X of snagit using ctrl shift p. I got a new version of snagit. It will not let me assign ctrl shift p.. Nothing currently running uses ctrl shift p except firefox when you are in firefox uses it for new private window which it had set as its hotkey when I was using the previous version of snagit, but snagit would override it.

Sorry this is terse. Im traveling and typing on my phone.
