You can capture the fullscreen, but you can't view the captures in editor in full screen.  so if you are making a full screen image, and want to see it, you have to export it out and open it in a 3rd party program that supports fullscreen viewing

You should be able to view fullscreen in snagit edtor which hides all the panels around the screen and lets you still use the tool you turned on or hotkey to

If you click the zoom options at the bottom of the editor, you should see a button labeled "Fit to Screen" and an option labeled "Always Shrink to Fit".

Is this enabled for you? If not, maybe it helps?

SnagIt doesn't support full screen editing. You can chose 100% as the zoom level and pan around. Thats as good as it gets.
