We have a magnifier tool, but you don’t want to cover up what your magnifying. Snagit needs a way to magnify a section and offset it magnified image a bit.

You can currently do something very similar with the Spotlight/Magnify effect in Snagit Windows, but it doesn’t look as nice (doesn’t include the lines).

This Idea didn’t get enough votes to be under consideration for a release in the next year or so. Having multiple shapes to choose from and being able to move the magnified area would be great. But there were other things that were deemed more valuable by the community. Like was stated above, there is a way to accomplish a version of this in Snagit Windows with the Spotlight/Magnify effect. But we hope to do this eventually. But we are marking this one as Not Planned for the time being. At this point, there are a lot of other things things we’ll be focusing on first. Definitely bring this up again when we do our next round of voting if you still see a need!
