I installed Snagit 2019 on MacOS latest version and totally love it.

But sometimes I start Snagit 2018 by accident and then it hangs and refuses to let me load Snagit 2019 unless I reboot.

I just want to de-install 2018

However, I'm afraid I"ll lose my old screen shot library.

How can I  de-install  Snagit2018 without deleting my old screen shots?

On Windows, the last prompt you receive when uninstalling SnagIt will ask this.............

Keep files is checked by default, which is what you want to do.

I could be wrong? I'd bet the farm you get the same prompt on a Mac.

Glad to hear you're loving the update!
On the Mac side, we don't have an uninstaller, so all you need to do is drag Snagit 2018 to the trash. Your captures are stored in a folder in your Documents folder, so moving the application to trash won't affect any of your captures or settings. If you're still a little nervous, you can reach out to our Tech Support and they can help you out as well.
