Shape Options Lacking

I'm using Snagit 13.1.6 (This is what my company is licensed for, so an upgrade isn't doable for me).

I do lots of callouts, and our style guide requires that the callout be tight around the object. In a previous version of Snagit, I had good luck with the rounded shapes for things like toggle switches (think iOS ui) and suare buttons with rounded corners, but after upgrading to this version, the shapes don't have the same shape.  The shape that looks like a rectangle with rounded corners is very close to the circle shape and has pointy ends. It looks nothing like the shape in the menu.



And the circle doesn't work either because it's also too pointy.



Please make the rounded corner shape look more like the image in the menu or add some controls to adjust the rounding.  Thank you!

Elizabeth - these are shapes not callouts - just keeping the terms clear and not trying to be petty
I am not sure exactly what you are looking for as there is a  square / rectangle with sharp corners and the circle is not giving you what you want

If you want less pointy on the sides you can create something with lines and turn on the bezier curves for the side and make it as you wish then group them and save them on another document for copy / paste as needed. That is NOT IN ANY WAY an ideal solution

I have built a couple in a vector program and they work but do not scale as well I I would like. (I have not tried saving one as a PDF for use in snagit)

take a look at this thread where there are instructions for creating what you want as a STAMP rather than a shape
