Setting to keep Editor from Opening in Full Screen

Whenever I do a screen capture with SnagIt, the Editor opens in full screen. The resize button does nothing. I have to click the resize button the manually reduce the size of the Editor screen. The minimize button does work. I would like to be able to have the editor open in a reduced size; and I would like for the resize button to work.

If you manually drag the sides and corners of SnagIt to adjust the size of the UI and position it where you want it.

Then close SnagIt. The next time SnagIt opens. It should be the same size and in the same location it was.

The resize button will also retain that setting. If you use it to switch to full screen mode and back again.
