What the heck happened with this upgrade? After being "upgraded" to version 12, it is so incredibly slow that I will remove it from my Windows 7 machine (which ran the previous version(s) more-or-less flawlessly for the last two years.)

I've been using SnagIt since it first came out, but this version sucks out loud. Never mind the fact that the interface has been so revamped that it's virtually new software, but if I want to take a screen cap, it literally takes about 30 seconds for the tool to respond. (Interestingly, the same thing goes for saving settings! And I can't even get the editor to launch.) I've uninstalled and reinstalled and cleaned my system and rebooted more times than I can count, and it still as horrible as ever.

This is a perfect example of how to lose customers.

I'm gone.

Program is 700MB plus, way larger than Google Earth. Too bloated to fix. Can I use old version again please? R

They just came out with an upgrade maybe it's all good now. I don't know, I hated Google Earth but just because a program is 700MB doesn't necessarily mean it's a dog ?
