Would like an option button that lets makes it possible to capture image and then run the ocr on that image in one step coping the captured text to the clip board.  Should work with and without preview.    Been using Snagit for years but this feature very important.

Hi Fred,

One option is to set the Capture Window as seen below. In the (1) Image Tab choose (2) Grab Text from the Selection dropdown and then (3) toggle on Copy to Clipboard. Then, take your capture and Snagit will bring the screenshot into the editor, identify the text, and copy it to your clipboard. The one caveat is that, right now, the preview is required. I am passing that feedback onto our product team.

Thank you for your question and have a great day!

Wow, the option to do this had completely slid under my radar, previously I'd done it manually within the editor. Glad to see that these features exist for customers who need them.
