Snagit 8 no longer works correctly with Windows 10.

  • Updated 3 months ago
My problem is with Snagit 8 AND Window 10 is:
I had to re-install Snagit 8 on 10.
Tried to "snag a screen" of a receipt in Firefox. ALL of receipt is visible.
Hit "capture",
Snagit, I Assume, ZOOMS in on my screen and CHOPS OFF THE RIGHT SIDE and only CAPTURES about the left half.
Tried ever setting in Snagit and was never able to see the right side  due to Snagit ZOOMING in.
Anyone else?
Window 7 of my copy NEVER DID this.
Anyone?

Hence the reason software is constantly being updated. Likely you just need to upgrade. Many things have changed with both operating systems as well as SnagIt to keep up with current technologies.

Forgot to mention that TechSmith does also offer a free trial for SnagIt 13 so you can test it to ensure that captures now work as you would expect.

True but having tried v12, it is a glitzy, weird thing appearing on my screen, no options. so I deleted it.
I like to command of my own hardware/software, a window, buttons, etc to control of instead of "watching the bouncing ball". Software is not suppose to be glitzy but powerful, lots of options....
Snagit 8 was a great version, even included the CLASSICAL LOOK.

So, Patrick Reeves

Not sure why SnagIt 8 is giving you problems. Maybe your monitors resolution has been set to something other than 100%?
I installed SnagIt 8 for the heck of it. I don't seem to have the problem you encountered. I'm running Firefox and I captured at full screen, and a couple of smaller regions that I pasted over the full screen capture shown below.


Scrolling window wouldn't work for me and I wouldn't  be surprised if there are some other bugs.But overall, I've found older versions of SnagIt to be very stable and usable.

I'm running a fully updated Anniversary Home addition of Windows 10. 

Regards,Joe
