Outook Output Accessory

I would like to suggest that a new Output Accessory be created for Microsoft Outlook.

The reason the outputs accessories are beneficial is that you can choose to output to a certain file you may have open.  
See the screen shot attached to show the send to open document feature:

Snagit has Output Accessories for excel, word, powerpoint, and onenote.
However it does not have one for Outlook.

The Outlook output option is a basic feature in Greenshot and gives the user the ability to choose an open email document you may be working on, and export the screenshot to that Outlook item inline with the cursor.  See the attached screen shot of Greenshots outlook export feature:

Snagit only has the option to export to email, and doesn't give you the option to choose which email you want to export to.  It will only export to a new email item.  

If a new Snagit Windows Output accessory was created for Micorosoft Outlook it will allow the user to choose which email item the screenshot needs to be exported to.

This is a huge time saving benefit that Greenshot has out of the box, but SnagIt is lacking that feature.

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!
