I'm hoping it's safely tucked away in some arcane location I've not yet landed on.

I tried the IMAGE / RESIZE CANVAS process you mentioned and it's a nightmare to try to use. Negative numbers to trim and then you have to choose which little box to trim and then it seems to work opposite what i would expect. Click the box on the bottom to trim the top.
Can 13 be upgraded to work the way it did before? I used this all the time when sizing images for web content. Thx.
It helps me more than working with the mouse, I think now use half the keys on the keyboard.
Where I started and where we are now.
I want to use more than the mouse, keyboard not all.
For me it was much easier to use version 12
Just like the original poster, I am a long-time user and advocate for SnagIt. I have used and loved it nearly every day since 2006.
Today I eagerly clicked through on the prompt to join the 2017 year-end voting process, hoping to find Custom Trim in the candidate set. Naturally I was pretty disappointed to see it missing from the list. I so desperately want this back!
If it helps, I find the suggested v13 alternative (Image > Resize Canvas...) to be insufficient specifically because:
- Often the right Custom Trim needs to take a little from all 4 edges, and rarely in a strictly "centered" Placement.
- The real-time preview (along with spinners) was perfect for dialing up just the right trim, and this preview is absent from Resize Canvas.
- The ability to recall and apply precisely the same Custom Trim on the next image was terrific. (I would most often do this on multiple images captured quickly with Repeat Last Capture hotkey).
- The presence of Custom Trim allowed me to be just a little sloppy (and certainly much faster) in grabbing my screen shot, without demanding incredible precision from my eyes and mouse.
So I've just traded one slow workflow for another.
In many other programs, I can hold the control key while dragging an handle and the opposite side will also crop at the same time. Is there any trick like that in Snagit so I don't have to crop each side?
