Want a caption tool in Snagit 13

I am disappointed that there is still no CAPTION tool in Snagit 13.
Creating an Image Caption is one of the most needed features of such a program!
An image caption can be at the top or at the bottom of the image. (Of course it should be outside of the original image).
It can be centered or left/right aligned.
It can have different font attributes (font size, font color, font name, etc.).
It can have different background colors.

And please don't tell me that I should create it manually with a text-object.
And please don't tell me I should create it as a capture template property, because I want to edit it in the editor.

I really don't understand why such an important tool is not part of Snagit tools!

Hi PeterBan,

I'm sorry you are disappointed in the feature set of the new Snagit.

To be honest, this is the first I have seen/heard of a specific captioning feature. We have had all sorts of requests for various callout/text features, and even for the outlining/meme functionality.

So, I may have just missed your post about the captioning and I apologize for that.
Be assured the product team will see your request, however, there is no promise the feature as you need it will make it into a future release.





As a form of a workaround, we do have a caption option available when you take your capture but, as you know, you have to add your words after capture via text or image callouts. Also, the current

I am going to turn this over to a feature request so we can better track it.

Thank you for your feedback.
