Slicing Tool?

I keep seeing references to "slicing tool", but I have no clue what that is. Is it the same as the marquee in Photoshop? I have Snagit 2019 and have tried help, which is useless, no help there. It's a shame that you have to come to a forum to find help for such a simple question.

If anyone can explain what a "slicing tool" is and where it can be found, I'd appreciate it. Thanks

When I say slicing tool, I'm meaning the the tool that can cut out full-length vertical and horizontal sections. It's a great tool to remove blank space in a screenshot to condense the content you care about. Does that make sense?

@Tony Coty, if by "slicing tool" you mean what @Kyle Stenson has posted, then the "Cut Out" tool does that.  See Image > Tools > Cut Out.

the tool that can cut out full-length vertical and horizontal sections.

I am familiar with the cut out tool, but have read a couple of people calling something "slice" tool, and never saw that word in Snagit.

Thank you for taking time to help.

Hi Tony;
Where are you seeing references to a "Slicing Tool?" Was it from a TechSmith source or from a different source? Perhaps they are referring to the "Snipping tool" on Windows?

Robert, thanks for the reply, I already got my answer, its the tool that cuts jagged edges, that is now my understanding. (see attached screenshot).

I read twice by two posters using the word "slicing tool" on this forum.  I kept looking at my Snagit program, but didn't see anything in help or on my toolbar that said "slicing tool", and that's because the people asking about it were not using the correct name, which I still don't know that it's called, but it is the tool I'm attaching ere.
