Show magnifier before capture

I love the magnifier we see when beginning a capture. It's very useful.



What would be nice is if there were a way to coax it to appear if you are refining the area before the actual capture occurs. I'm thinking perhaps it would work just as the initial selection does, where pressing the M key turns it off or on. Press M while refining the selection so you can get a closer view.



Cheers... Rick :)

Hi Ricks!

It's hard to tell from the screenshots if that's Mac or Windows, but on the latest mac version the magnifier is available when you do the last second refinement.

Does that appear upon adjusting the size or is it summoned via a keypress?

Oh, and I'm a PC. A cheap PC. I've never been able to afford those pricey Macs! LOL

Cheers... Rick :)

Hi Rick,

On the mac it appears when adjusting the size (although if you press 'M' you can hide/show it).

Sure would be handy if the PC version behaved that way too!

I agree! I'll pass this along to the team.
