The following topics have been addressed previously but not recently. Tech Smith has come up with a new version of SnagIt and still has not addressed problems they go back to at least version 7. Maybe we can get comments and/ or patches that will address historically ignored problems.
I have used SnagIt for many years and have purchased numerous generations of version changes. I have several basic needs for a screen capture program like SnagIt. In any given situation it is problematic that SnagIt will perform as I expected and programmed a profile to accomplish a given screen capture task. On the SnagIt forum other users that expect the same capture capabilities that I do complain, version after version, that the desired functions either do not any longer exist or continue to fail in their execution.
Usually post on this forum extol the same frustrations that I have had. I’m presently using SnagIt version 11. Will I “upgrade” to version 12? NO!
Recent “upgrades” of SnagIt have not solved my problems and are in fact are steps backwards. I want a simple interface. I want to be able to easily adjust the size of my screen captures and change canvas sizes. I want an easily accessible tool to add text to a screen capture. And a biggie is the ability to make screen captures that maintain workable links. The screen captures should include scrollable webpages, the ability to capture an entire webpage, and a portion of the webpage that contains links of interest. I would like screen captures to have the capability of being added to a email as an attachment and/or be incorporated onto the main email page itself and all the while to keep active HTML web links. SnagIt is not been able to consistently give me the behaviors of a screen capture program that accomplishes these few desired and expected tasks.
If I have successfully been able to program a profile that initially provides a solution to my needed tasks that profile becomes degraded to the point that it no longer works correctly. The first thing to go is the ability to interact with a captured webpage workable HTML links. Workability of a screen capture makes no difference as to file type (PDF, SWF, or MHT) used to archive the capture.
What can an end user or a publisher do to improve the SnagIt program to accomplish the basic screen captures with the properties I mentioned above?
