Would it be generally accepted as a good idea (useful) to add some more options to the text formatting options in Snagit?

Do you like the idea and find it useful as a future suggestion to the Snagit development team?

Have a great day!

Nick

Added Word interface snapshot just to get an idea.

Quite a lot of the word formatting options are already there, so you probably need to be a bit more specific about what additional ones you're thinking about. Format Painter, Order Lists and Bullet Points perhaps?

Are you asking about these items?
1. Numbering and bullets
2. Indent left and right
3. Strikethrough
4. Increase/decrease text size 
5. Styles

What text styles would you suggest?

What style do you think would be pleasing to the majority.
I go by the default in Corel Draw.
I save styles I make up as I go. If something looks good, I keep it.
That way you always have it ready if you need it in a hurry and you don't have to go through the steps every time.
Styles are especially useful when working on documents containing multiple common elements, such as text formatting and graphic colours.





The Graphic and Text Styles docker makes it a breeze to create or apply a style. For example, if you have a graphic with a color fill or outline that you know you will use again, simply drag that graphic onto the Graphic and Text Styles docker. Then, when you want to reuse the color fill or outline for another graphic, simply drag the style name from the docker onto the graphic. From the docker, you can also rename, edit, or delete a style by right-clicking and using the options in the drop-down menu.
Another advantage of using styles is the ability to dynamically update multiple graphic or text objects within a document. For example, if you have a style applied to several graphics, you can update all instances at once by editing the properties of the style. This also applies for any text objects that use a style to specify formatting attributes.
Edit the outline and fill properties.

Just to be clear, impartially I don't really want Snagit to look like this. I've just posted and example of what I am used to as an individual designer.

Regards,

One of the formatting issues that drives me nuts is that with every single object you have to start from scratch.

I would like to be able to define some system defaults for object text font face, size, weight, Object border colour, width, shadow and fill

I would like to have a padding option around the text. For tight spaces, I can't seem to make the text box small enough to fit because there is automatic padding around the text that I can't seem to change.

In general, I'd like more text control options like Omnigraffle.

Indeed, there is usually too much of non-adjustable padding around text.
