snagit creators: PLEASE implement a DELAYED pop-out in future realeases

I am forced to mutter bad, bad words many times a day ;-) because every time my mouse goes near the hidden profile thingy that hovers along the side of the window ... it fricken pops out and irritates the heck out of me ... doesn't matter where along the screen I put it, it eventually gets in my way and POP ... dang it is infuriating. I WISH you folks would include an option in the program's preferences that would be something like:
[ ] hover pop-out delayed by ___ seconds.
so that a person would have to hover over the little blue strip hiding at the edge of the window for at least 1 second or more before it would pop out. 
I know I can remove it all together, but that's not what I want ... I want to delay the hover pop-out time.
Thank you.

Hey Sandy,

Great idea! As a work around, the default hotkey to hide that capture window is ctrl+shift+x. You could try toggling that on and off before you want to make a capture. That may not be a viable solution for you, but I thought I'd toss it out there!

Thank you but unfortunately that doesn't work for even. Even though I have that checked off as an option in the preferences, when I use C+S+x (I get an error window saying something like this feature is not available for 64bit systems) or even C+S+A+x ... nothing at all happens.
But thanks anyway. :-)

Thank you for the feedback, Sandy. 

I will be discussing this idea with our design team and figure out if this should be changed across the board (not have an option, but change the default) or include an option. 

Thanks!

Thank you, Jason. I appreciate it. I'm sure that would be a very welcome option. Can't hurt, right? ;-)
Thanks,
Sandy

Hi Sandy, 

No problem. We do try to be protective of the complexity we add to Snagit and TechSmith products. While an option here or there is harmless ;), when you have lots of options, it generally means more complexity. So, we're always weighing the benefit and cost of adding new options. That's one of the reasons why I mentioned our discussion being about making your suggestion the default behavior. So, we'll see what everyone thinks!

Thank you again,

Jason!

+1 A delay on the Capture Window pop-out would be great. I had to turn it off and just use the menu bar icon.
