In SnagIt 12, I could position the cursor over an image, adjust the corner position with keyboard arrows to the exact pixel, press Enter once to lock the first corner, then drag the selection to the other corner and position to the exact pixel with keyboard arrows, then press Enter again to complete the capture for the precise selection.  That was a FABULOUS feature and it was taken out in SnagIt 2018!

This should still be possible, looks like it changed a bit though:
- SPACE enters selection, ENTER selects the window
- ENTER finishes the selection
- Arrow keys move pixel by pixel
- Alt+Arrow keys move 10 pixels
Let me know if that works for you.
