Option to Disable "Save to Library" and "Recent Tray" in Preset Creation

Please cast a VOTE above. Thank you.

Here's the situation

I have been repurposing video into other forms of content such as PDF's,  More focused presentations with slides etc. using Powerpoint

The way I am doing this is by setting up Snagit to make captures of the videos at timed intervals and sending (sharing) to Powerpoints slides.

Depending on the length of the video and the capture timing used can result in from as low as 20 slides to over 100+ slides before cut/editing.

All good, Except, All those captures also end up being in the Snagit library and Recent tray.
So unless I remember to turn the "Save new captures to library" option in editor preferences off and change the "Maximum recent files" to 1 (which isn't always honored) before starting the capture operation

I can end up with 100+ captures in the library and tray that I have to go in and remove.

On top of that I then have to remember to change those settings back when done because I do use the Library to some degree.

I don't need to save the captures in Snagit because once the capture operation is done and all the slides are created the Powerpoint is saved twice.
Once as a original backup in two locations and then saved again as the working project.

What Idea I suggest is a option in the "Time Delay" preset option to Not Save To Library and Recent Tray.




That would allow someone to create a preset that does not need captures saved to the library and tray and then have to remember each time to disable/re-enable the options in the preference settings or waste time cleaning up the library and tray of needless captures.

You should be able to make that determination on the fly or at least in the presets as you suggest
I copy and paste a lot of things with "Preview in Editor" shut off yet it still appears in the library as I want the setting turned ON for the most part
I hope they get serious about fixing some of these annoyances rather than ignoring them

So much has been broken and much of it is basic stuff that affects  workflows. People keep posting things and naturally they don't get enough"votes" to fix it. SOme things like this are things that should not have t vote threshold to be considered.

Yeah, this issue is tickling my nerves to be honest. I can't continue my work on android project because of that. Actually insane! I like how android app development gets tricky thank to this stuff, meh.
