Please would you re-consider to re-introduce the SnagIt v11 Quick Access Toolbar.
I believe it is highly valued as it obviously reduce the number of clicks.

This Idea didn’t get enough votes to be under consideration for a future release at this time. So, we are marking this one as Not Planned. We do want to give you all an explanation behind the reasoning though. Because we definitely understand the need for a more advanced toolbar.

First, like we mentioned, it didn’t get as many votes as other items in the round up. We are going to focus on improving other areas first.

Second, the Quick Access Toolbar is something that is quite entangled with the Ribbon. And that’s something we’re not going bring back as well. It, too, didn’t get enough votes in this round and there are other reasons outlined in this post.

That said, while we aren’t bringing back the Quick Access Toolbar that was part of the Ribbon, favoriting your regularly-used Quick Styles and Tools is definitely in the cards for releases in the future.

Also, very much related to this item are having custom hotkeys and a more robust positioning of toolbar buttons. Those two got votes in the mid-range; they are something we are open to incrementally improving over time, but aren’t something we’ll be focusing on in the near term given the other things that will be worked on. If you are more interested in one over the other, we encourage you to bring it up again in the next round-up.

Here are the definitions of what the statuses mean for Ideas.
Here is the overall vote count for the rest of the Ideas in this round up.
