Until I upgraded to 2020.0.1 for Mac I was able to keep the latest clip in my clipboard. Now I can't and I can't find anywhere in the settings to address the problem. Has this SUPER NICE feature somehow been removed?

Hi,

Copy to clipboard is still there! You'll have to check a few places to make sure it's turned on though, so whichever mode of the capture window you're using, look for the Copy to Clipboard setting and make sure it's on (blue):

Thank you, Luke. I must have had a brain freeze or something :-)

This must be a Mac thing? I'm assuming you used SnagIt to capture those dialogs. I like how they are neat and crisp. For me, over on Windows, I invariably end up with an additional area about 11 pixels wide that surrounds the captures as shown below.



Note that I captured against a black background so it would be visible. Often, I end up with all manner of bits of screen. And I end up futzing with it to trim away the unwanted bit.

Cheers... Rick :)

Wow! Hey, Rick, hope it gets added to the Win version. This old guy never even noticed it was there but will now put it to good use as I often do screenshots that are immediately going into an email. This eliminates a couple steps to do that. Thanks, Thomas, for your "brain freeze or something"!!  :)

So I was doing an experiment. I configured a capture profile that also trims pixels away from the edge. It seems that 13 pixels is the magick sauce for me. Once it opens in the editor, it's pixel perfect!
