This appears to be a SnagIt question. It has been posted to the Camtasia for Mac forum.
That being said.

I'm not sure if you're using a Mac computer or Windows computer at this point.

I can tell you this, if you using a Windows computer.
Before starting your capture, if you hold down the shift key and start to drag. You will capture a 1 by 1 aspect ratio area.
If you hold down the control key before starting your capture. You will capture a 16 by 9 aspect ratio area.

If you use the all-in-one capture method. You can reposition the capture area. Hold down shift or control, whichever is appropriate to resize the capture area and maintain the aspect ratio. And complete the capture that way.

Regards, Joe

and lets not forget Shift+Ctrl and drag locks in 4:3 ratio if you need that.
