I agree. I've been using SnagIT for decades, almost since Ver 1, and it is head and shoulders above all similar products. SnagIT 2018 has taken it to a new level, especially with new features like the "smart move".
I also started with SnagIt in the year Dot - probably Win 3.1 era. However the new versions became ugly so I stuck to an old very slick version until trying SnagIt 2018 the other day. I am finally converted ................ and purchased a new license and MSU agreement.
