We, as a software developing company, want to know how can we have a direct link in the toolbar to our external program, for snagit (latest version).
Our customer would like a Share Destination directly to our application, and add our program directly in the toolbar (same as Youtube, Dropbox for instance, and not via : "program -> new program output -> ok)
PS : i would like to upload a screenshot, but since I can't screenshot snagit with snagit, it's impossible.

I can't help you as far as the program destination other than the option you do not want to use.
Contacting support directly might give you a better solution. Maybe they can give you info on how to create a output.

About taking a screenshot of Snagit when running...

You can do screenshots of most of Snagit like the editor. Sometimes you need to use a delayed capture and hover your mouse over areas before the countdown ends to get the capture. ie;  menus selections etc.

To do this you have to uncheck "Hide Snagit when capturing" in the Capture preferences under the "Capture Tab"

That said,  there are some areas Snagit can't capture of itself like the option windows
shown above.

To get those captures ( in Windows)  you can use Windows Snipping Tool.
Do a search from the start menu for snipping tool. Simple and easy to use.

I have pinned a shortcut for it to my taskbar for those times Snagit won't do the job.

In closing here is Techsmith support contact info

Alright, Thanks a lot for the little lesson about capturing Snagit with Snagit :D.

For our problem regarding the external program, the support is not of great help to be honest. I contacted Techsmith for partnership but no answer yet.

Thank you.
