I can't seem to find a way to map a keystroke assignment to my logitech mouse or keyboard which will immediately open Snagit and launch the 'capture region' command. Is this possible? The preferences do not seem to allow for this. I'm sure I'm missing something! The version I have is set out below.
Many thanks in advance

This is in Snagit Windows. You don't say what platform you are using.

Make a New Image Preset with the options you want.

Name your preset, then click on the words "Add Hotkey" and type the key combo you want for the hotkey.
 Click the little gear for a preset to edit, rename etc. the preset.

Hi,

There is also a help page for working with Presets, along with a video on that same page.

Thanks Dubie and Kelly! I hadn't noticed the hotkeys for presets! All done now and it works like a charm!
