Numbered Arrows for Screenshot Markup

I'm sure this has been thought up before but a feature I would love is Numbered Arrows. I work in IT and use your software for screenshots. I then take the screenshots and put in arrows with numbers next to them to indicate an order something should be done in. It would be cool if this was an actual tool, it'd be a combination of your existing arrows and text boxes.

Some operating parameters:
-First arrow would have number 1 next to it
-The numbers would auto-increment for each Numbered Arrow that is placed on the given screen shot.
-If I modify the first arrow on the screenshot from number 1 to number 5, the rest of the arrows would then update themselves to their respective numbers.
-We would be able to control how the numbered arrows look

Just an idea, Great work on Snag-it, love it!

Numbered Arrow Stamps can be dowbloaded here:

Tip: On this page select the Numbers & Letters tab.

You could use a blank arrow, then add your number on top of the stamp, or use the pre-numbered arrows.

If you like to make a lot revisions for updates to your documents, save your file as a .snag file.

An auto re-number sort function I suspect is beyond the current ability of Snagit.

Hope this helps.

I like this idea - am using this very often and wanted to have something like the below, that is to say, in fact a call-out style, being and arrow with a round circle where one cud add a seq.nbr. 1,2,3..

Automatic numbering is a bit difficult I would say: if you delete one arrow, SnagIt should renumber things and so on, so I guess that's too complicated.

Regretfully there is no real 'circle with arrow' under styles, but one cud adjust an existing one.

Just an idea.
