Snagit 13, delayed capture work flow not working for me

If I wanted to capture a drop down, or the cursor, I figured I'd just delay the capture, then have the menu down when the 5 seconds passed.

Now, the delays gives me a counter in the corner for 5 seconds.
Then I get the option of drawing out the frame to capture.
As soon as I release mouse defining the frame, the screen capture is taken, before I can move the mouse or drop down a menu or float a tool tip.

Shouldn't the 5 second delay be after I have drawn out the frame to capture?

Hey Bruce.
Look at it this way,

The delay allows you to open drop down window before capturing is triggered.
That way when the 5 seconds are up you can easily select the menu because it is already open.

D'oh!
Same functionality as before, just different order.  For some reason I thought I had tried that order and it collapsed the menu.  Must've fat fingered it.

Thanks Joe for putting me on the straight and narrow..
