Snagit 10.0.1 - Looking for a way to capture to both clipboard AND to Snagit Editor

I would love to be able to do BOTH without having to make another profile or even to (I know, I know) click the copy all button or  Ctrl + Shift + C after every capture taken.

I see that this has been asked many times over the years, as it has been an often requested feature or investigated as to work-around it so it can be done with ONE profile, so I know I'm not alone.

First of all, yes, I have Snagit 10.0.1 and haven't purchased anything newer since 10, as it has done a fantastic job for everything I need - up to this little annoyance. So I am looking to see if this can be in fact done in 10, without needing to upgrade. BTW > I have tried all the newer Snagit versions as trials, and to be honest, the only one I would be willing to go "up" to would be 11. 12 and 13 are not of interest at all to me, the current direction TechSmith is heading with Snagit is disappointing to me as a graphic artist. It feels like things are going backwards in terms of productivity and features (except for that nifty panoramic feature).

I have scoured the forums and tried many workarounds and tricks.
1. Create, duplicate or edit an existing profile.
2. In the Profile Settings > Output: Uncheck Preview in Editor.
3. Check Multiple Outputs.
4. Check Clipboard and Program and additional alternatives you might want.
5. Output > Properties... > Program tab. Choose Add... Find the executable to the Snagit Editor (in my case C:\Program Files (x86)\TechSmith\Snagit 10\SnagitEditor.exe).
6. Save profile.
(7. Bind profile to a hotkey if you didn't edit the one you are using.)
The one above even was thankfully old enough to relate to version 10, but sadly I could not get a capture to both appear in the editor and get put into the clipboard simultaneously. This really does seem like something simple that I am surprised Snagit 10 cannot seem to do in one step.

Anybody still using this fantastic old piece of software that still works great, that might have an idea how I can accomplish those two tasks in one fell swoop, I would be most appreciative. The step-by-step instructions above, sound like a perfect recipe to solve this, but alas, for me, it did not work (the capture went to the Snagit Editor, but retained old data in the clipboard when I went to paste it elsewhere).

I am currently testing Screenpresso (free) that does this 'out of the box' default. It puts it in it's editor/drawer and copies it to the clipboard perfectly. I have come to love Snagit 10 (and maybe 11 from the looks of it), and would rather not change products... but Screenpresso will do this very easily. I thought I would ask the community if there is a sure-fire way to setup a profile to do these two simple tasks in one shot.

Thanks for any assistance! Much appreciated :)
