Is Snagit for Mac that crippled compared to the Windows version? I'm a registered user of Snagit for Mac and the User Manual is 5 pages compared to 171 pages for Windows version.

Hi,

I'm not familiar with the windows user manual, so I'm not sure why the difference is so large. Our latest version of Snagit Mac has much of the same functionality as the windows version. If there are certain features you're worried might be missing, we have a 15 day trial so you can give it a try and see if it has everything you'd hope it would.

I'm already a registered user. Maybe you could compare the 2 manuals and explain the difference. Or maybe there's a newer Mac manual that compares.

Where did you find the mac user manual? If I take my computer offline and click any of the "?" buttons, it opens a help pdf that's 66 pages.

At closer examination, it's just an introductory from what it appears. Can you direct me to a link to where I can download the manual for Mac? So,m what you're saying, the Mac version is comparable to the Windows version now?

The windows version still has a few features that the mac side doesn't, but it's down to the lesser used ones at this point., We've brought the mac side much closer to windows in the last couple of years. If there are features you'd like to see, let us know!

Thank you. Oh, one thing....how does one create their own folders and subfolders in the Snagit Library? Once created, is it a drag and drop?

The library doesn't have subfolder support (I'm not sure offhand if windows has that or not). Right now the only manual organization scheme is tags.

That would be a feature I would recommend, then. Thanks.

SnagIt for Mac does not appear to have the Group option to group objects in order to size and position them together on the screen. This seems strange because it's such a basic feature.
