screen shot without drawing box

I watch webinars in which the presenter encourages viewers to take screenshots of what she is doing so we can replicate it later on.  I love using jing for this.  My one suggestion/idea is that there would be a way to toggle the option to draw a box for screenshots/insta-capture.

I am fully aware that you can take screen shots on windows with alt+prtscn. but that takes a photo to my clipboard...then open your favorite drawing program....paste....save....

Imagine doing that 6 or 8 times in a 5 minute span....not easy...

Hi - using profiles you could create a preset which is the size required. Additionally you could send the the output to a file of a certain type

Having done this you can assign a shortcut key to the profile.

Then whenever you need to take a Snag - press the hot key and away you go.

With practice this is a useful facet of Snagit and if you set the base name of the file with an incremental suffix - the Snags are easy to group and order.

Hope this helps
Andy
