Save hotkeys for future use

After changing the hotkey preferences, Snagit goes back to the original defaults after exiting and restarting the program. It would be nice if the chosen hotkey preferences would be saved indefinitely until changed again by the user.

It should be retaining your choices unless there is a conflict with those hotkeys being used by another program or possibly even Windows itself.

Have you restarted (reboot) your machine lately to see if it helps ?
Sometimes the machine gets confused.

Maybe try a Snagit "Repair install" to see if it helps.

Contact Support  It could be any number of things causing it.

Thanks for the reply. I have tried rebooting and uninstalling/reinstalling the program but that did not help. I use this program almost everyday so it's annoying to always have to change the hotkey preferences each day. I'm getting a new computer in 2 weeks and hopefully it will not be a problem on the new device.
