One Quick Styles to rule them all

Most of the time, I use but 10 or so objects in my annotations of screen captures.
Now I have to select which one (text, shape, callout, line) at the top of the screen, remembering what the icon/reading the text, sometimes even having to use the dreaded drop down menu of "More".  Then I have to move over to the right, and select the correct one from the new Quick Styles.

What about one "Quick Styles" with all of my most favorite items? (mis-spellings aside)

Some days there are over 100-images that need to be captured and adjusted.  In v12.x the two areas of Tools and Images were constantly being clicked and scrolled.  Anything that could get us into an access area where the primary tools required to get images into a professional technical document could save a huge amount of time.  Consider the time needed in a process that captures images that need SnagIt control role can be simplified so its use with the image makes the image meaningful to the technical information.

A user positioned palette window with Quick-Styles from Tools, Images, and the Share items all easily laid out so that the most often used were near the top, and the less used near the bottom.  All the control icons visible and easily available outside of any group constraints.  This type of layout would save a lot of time because the clicks and scrolls within menu sources don't add value to the work, and grouping consumes screen space could all be eliminated.  That kind of layout would make my day more productive, less tedious and less of an effort.

SnagIt adds value to communications.  Anything that can be done with SnagIt that focuses on productivity and ease of access makes the work more about the communications instead of the design limitations of the software.

Hi and thanks for submitting your idea/feature request!

As outlined in our New Community Processes post, feature requests are open to voting up through the first, where we will then tally the votes and present the findings to our product teams. To ensure we have the most accurate data, on the 1st of the month we will be locking the threads that were listed in the Feature Request Round-up that was posted on the 15th. Once we have reviewed the submitted feature requests, our product team(s) may respond to the request, and if that is the case then that thread will then be unlocked for further discussion.

In the event that your idea is not selected for a response feel free to resubmit the idea and share it with your colleagues to garner as much exposure as possible!

Thank you again for your idea and we look forward to hearing more from you!

Hi there!

First, thank you for submitting your feature request for Snagit, we know that your time is valuable and we are truly honored that you would spend it working with Snagit and finding it in need of new features or ideas, and for that dedication, we thank you. While this is a great idea, unfortunately this feature request does not fit into our current plan for Snagit and as such, we will not be setting aside development resources for it. That is not to say that this idea may never make it into Snagit, but only that it does not fit into our current development plan. It is strongly recommended that you repost your feature request this upcoming month and then share it with your professional social networks and work colleagues, directing them to the new thread and encouraging them to share their thoughts on the idea, and click the vote button if they find it a good fit for Snagit. Truly championing your ideas may help alter our vision of Snagit’s future, so we encourage you to get out and really show the benefits of this feature to both your own circles and others like this community.

Again, we cannot thank you enough and look forward to seeing your continued support of Snagit!
