Hi @Paul,

I'm guessing you are using perhaps snagit 13?
Your going to love the "improvements" in 2018.2.2 version
Here's some images for you.
BTW you helped me out unintentionally with a setting I couldn't find, so thanks for that:)

Hi Damian

No, actually I am on 2019.

Ha Ha.  I wasn't even aware of the View > Output Preferences section

But hang on, how does View > Output Preferences differ from:


So in the editor all preferences are handled together, but in capture the Outputs are separated from the other preferences.

Bonkers.

It looks like it doesn't.
So I'm in for the shock if I ever go to Snagit2019... not happening until they change their pricing model and fix all the previous faults... lol as if!



Bonkers sounds like a great word for it!
Or perhaps they need a continuity /design team?

Hi Paul,

I see why you're frustrated!

Early last year, we conducted a card sort usability test with users to determine the most logical order for all of our Editor menu items, but we didn't run a similar user test on the Capture window menu items. So, that's probably why the Preferences options are found in separate menus between the two (and also why various preference-related items are found across multiple menus, as Damian pointed out).

We'll look at making these more consistent and reducing some of those redundancies in a future release. Thanks for bringing this to our attention!

For anyone else that is curious like I am, here is a link describing what this "card sort" test is.
