I would like to be able to change the font characteristics of the bubble in snagit. I absolutely love you add a way to make numbering for what I use as steps, but if I need things smaller it is not working for me and find no way to change the font size.

Hi there

Are you talking about the new step feature?

If so, it should be adjusting the font size to accommodate the overall size of the step. If I grab a sizing handle and make it larger or smaller, the font auto-adjusts for me on my own PC.

I'm guessing you aren't seeing similar behavior?

Cheers... Rick :)

See Image Below. As you can see I have numbered steps of all sizes. That is a very small Image I'm working with also. You can see the SnagIt Big Red Button buried in the Image. You need to click on a numbered step after you place it on your image. That will give you the Box you see surrounding the  yellow 8. You just grab any handle and resize the numbered step. When you apply step 1, If you resize it before Applying step 2, Step 2 will be the same size as Step 1. And every step after that will be the same size until you change a newly applied step. 
I would like to be able to change the Numbers to Letters, and also change the Font Style. Absolutely!  I'm guessing that's what you were referring to as Font Characteristics. So Ricks right, I was just expanding on his response.
Regards, Joe

@ Andy, and anyone else! See Image Below.
I just discovered you can change the Numbers to Fonts when using Steps.
I knew how to change the numbers value, but I never actually tried to change them into Letters.
WOW, you can even do up to five letters  AAAAA,BBBBB,CCCCC.
And they do apply in sequence.
Now if I could just choose the Font Style. LOL.
 This is a Cool discovery to me.

Regards, Joe

I appreciate you taking the time to share some ideas. I can resize and see the font get smaller, but you cannot change the font from what I can tell. When things get small I like to bold the font to make it stand out. This is how I have built my own in the past to draw a circle, then put a text box over it and adjust until I get it just right. So this feature is a huge time saver having it add things, but just want a little more flexibility is what I would like to see.

Making circles smaller decrease font quality, please improve this feature to allow to choose font size and circle could be based on font size not just over way around
