Prompt for capture info

Hello,

Is there any way to customize the capture info ? The default info is useless to me and I need to enter specific data. The Windows version prompts the user for caption data, but I couldn't find that anywhere in the Mac version.

Thank you

Hi, 

Thanks for taking the time to post your question. Currently, the capture info that gets included is fixed to the fields that you're seeing. Can you tell us a bit more about what you're hoping to accomplish with customizable info (we're always anxious to learn new problems we can be solving)? I will open a new issue to be reviewed by our product manager...so any additional context would be great!

As a little background on this new feature, it was targeted at automating some of the repetitive tasks for folks who use screenshots to report bugs or problems such that their environment will be captured without needing to manually enter that data. This was somewhat of an evolution of the "Caption" feature you're referring to on Snagit Windows, but was implemented in a slightly more targeted way. 



Thanks!

Hey Luke, was this a Mac only update? I'm a Windows guy and just did the "check for updates" and SnagIt reports it's up to date.

Thanks... Rick :)

Hi Rick,

Yes this update was Mac only. In general we try to ship major and minors at the same time, but bug fix releases we usually do as needed/when they're ready.
