Snagit Editor "Project" OR "Export Selected Images" option...

As a software developer, typically I'm using SnagIt to capture screen shots, and snaps from Excel or Word etc.,for requirements gathering etc.

It would be nice if I could collect all the images in the Recent Captures list (usually associated with a development project) and save them out to a Zip file or folder to maintain as a project.

Thinking on this further, it may be nice if Editor had perhaps  New/Open/Save Project functionality - this way all selected images that are in the recent captures could be saved and related together into a project which could be reopened later at any time.

I know the library maintains all captures, which I can sort by date (and looking just now, I'm reminded that there is a Tag facility - where I now tagged my latest captures under a project name.)

I still think it would be nice if I could export a group of images into a folder, where Editor would let me work with those related images at any time to add / edit markups and save out new edited versions etc.
(...And yes, versioning would be nice too!  For this I usually use a small, (no longer developed) program called "FileHamster" which can be pointed to a folder to maintain copies of edited files along with notes/comments on the different versions - a poor man's source control if you will.)

Thanks for your consideration!

There has been a lot of discussion on this recently. Dating back to SnagIt 11 when Folders were provided to segment capture sessions we had that ability. When that went away, so did our ability to organize our view of recents to include the contents of a chosen folder. T/S doesn't seem to grasp this concept. Their boilerplate response is "use tags, they're perfect".
