Snagit 13 - New OneClick menu needed, with Windows "pin to taskbar" option

We should have an option to pin OneClick to the Windows taskbar? Currently, I can only pin the Snagit Editor or Snagit Capture presets window (which I always immediately close to access the OneClick window).



In addition, the new Snagit 13 OneClick window (shown above) with its single large red button is a poor design because the user must then select the screenshot / video mode required. Clicking "View Presets" is another option, but there is a long bar of empty space below these Presets (also shown above), and the large red button is still never used. Please go back to the version 12 OneClick window layout (below), which was VERY PRACTICAL.

Thanks!

The OneClick window (your first screenshot) was adjusted for version 13 to fit better with the new style of managing Presets (formerly Profiles). Presets are managed in the main Snagit window (the second screenshot). Since OneClick has its own pop-out behavior when it gets hovered by the mouse, pinning it to the taskbar should not be necessary. We did get positive feedback during trials from the majority of users for the layout of the Snagit window. There are options for the user to not have to select the capture mode (image vs video) when clicking the red capture button / pressing the Print Screen key which include: selecting the Image tab (on the left of Snagit) to default to performing image captures; selecting the Video tab to default to performing video captures; assigning hotkeys to presets that perform either image or video capture.
Hope that helps, and thanks for your feedback,
Bill

Bill,

Thanks for the quick reply. I also assigned Hotkeys but forget to use them at times. :P  How do I perform this step?: "which include: selecting the Image tab (on the left of Snagit) to default to performing image captures". If the user could assign any of the Preset options directly to the large red Capture button, that would be a nice feature. The button could update with the graphic of the preset applied and show a "(default)" label next to that item. Also, can we eliminate the unused space in the presets list so the bar is not so long?

When I boot up my computer and want to open SnagIt to take a image capture, it seems the only way to do so is by launching the main SnagIt window (with preset options) which I should never need to use after the initial setup. Closing this window each time is an initial unneeded step. I am looking for a way to call the OneClick window (without opening the main SnagIt window) but don't find a "OneClick.exe" file that I can pin to the taskbar. A possibility could be to add a "Hide Presets Window" similar to the "Hide OneClick" so that only the OneClick window would open upon running Snagit32.exe?

I also asked several co-workers who use SnagIt daily and they all prefer the ver 12 OneClick layout over the new format. It would be nice if there were multiple OneClick layouts so the user could select the one that works best for them.

Thanks again!

You can set SnagIt to start when the computer starts. If you do that you won't need to close One Click.
I don't like running SnagIt at start up myself.
I'm with you, if I want the one click window I can open that when necessary.

Regards, Joe

Actually Joe, I want the opposite. I want to launch OneClick but hide the SnagIt Capture Presets window. with a few changes mentioned above, the OneClick window has everything I need and auto-hides itself. I don't find the new Capture Presets window helpful.

I do agree with disabling the "Run SnagIt when Windows starts" option.

Thanks,

-Gary

If Snagit is set to start when windows starts, it will show an icon in the tray/notification area and show OneClick (if configured to do so), but not show the Snagit window. If Snagit is set to not start when Windows start, when the user starts it manually, Snagit will show it's window (plus notification icon plus OneClick (if configured)). You can close the Snagit window (click X in the title bar) and continue to interact with OneClick, notification icon, and hotkeys. The presets can be accessed from OneClick, or from the notification icon by right-clicking hover the Presets menu. Hope that helps.

v13.0.1 has a bug whereby the floating Capture Window is shown at system startup when the option 'Run Snagit when Windows starts' is enabled and the option 'Show OnceClick' is disabled.

I realize I'm late to this party, but I agree with Joe and gmelerine. I don't use OneClick. If I remember correctly, in Snagit 12 there was an option to minimize the Capture window to the system tray when Snagit was launched from the Start menu. I know it's only one more click to close that Capture window at launch, but it would be nice to have that back.

I also preferred the snagit 12 red button interface to the new 13 interface. Why could you not add the options to the 12 interface?

Why is the &?*%$/%$ capture window still showing up in the latest update, even after disabling it?  All I want is the icon showing up in the tray area at Windows startup.  Nothing else!!!
