SnagIt Notes Revisited

  • Question
  • Updated 4 weeks ago

Chris with all due respect to your response and closing the request for not including SnagIt Notes in the 2018 release the topic should not even be a point of discussion or a matter up to the number of votes.  Most users do not even know about the voting ability as such you do not get a full picture of how many users are missing it.   No software update should ever take away a feature that has been in so many releases unless it is harming the performance. Your code is in place and needs to be updated.  I am sure this is not a major challenge based on all the other recoding done to update the software which has been done well.

Your team has always done an outstanding job and I am shocked that you have decided not to release a 2018 version of this sharing capability.  You have one of the best screen capture software programs and you are suggesting using another program to do something your system has done well for years, that makes no sense and none of the programs referenced accept your screen captures, that is why your software offered it in the first place.  I am respectfully asking for reconsideration of the updated SnagitNote feature.  As a person who has been using your program since version one and recommends your software very often to others, I am reluctant to upgrade my other personal computers and those of colleagues until I see what other features you have removed.

I know you and your team is better than this and you should not rely on the voting as a true indicator and sole indicator of customer satisfaction.  You should note that when I called to see why the downloaded file for SnagIt Note did not work one of the techs referenced I was the second call of the day looking for the updated version of Sangit Note for 2018.

Thank you for your reconsideration.

I agree with you 100% Bill.
I've been playing around in Photoshop to make a point in my own way.

My rebuttal has been written for a while and my image is now complete. It goes as follows.

I personally, never used SnagIt Notes.

I thought they were pretty cool when I first looked at them.

108 people voted to bring them back/Keep them/whatever. I figure most SnagIt users don't visit this forum or cast votes.
This whole voting process is flawed for that reason.
TechSmith cannot possibly know how many people are let down by the disappearance of this feature.
Plus you use SnagIt captures to post images along with your notes if so desired. A perfect fit, or so it would seem to me.

From my perspective, SnagIt notes should be the one of the easiest and simplest features to maintain.
It's not a feature request, it already exists.
I don't think people are looking for SnagIt notes for their Smart Phones.If they are, tell them to find a smart phone app.

R.I.P. SnagIt Notes.

Regards,Joe

Well Rick Stone, you have a poor memory then. In this post you appreciated finding out what SnagIt notes was for.
https://feedback.techsmith.com/techsmith/topics/share-with-snagit-notes-going-away
But if there's an excuse for dropping and losing loyal  customers. You seem to be first in line to look for that excuse,rational or not. Created out of thin air and your own mind. You simply want to defend TechSmith, right or wrong.
Since when is losing money and customers a winning strategy? Don't bother trying to answer that for me, because there is no justification you can sell me on.It would only be a waste of your time to try.

This Idea didn’t get enough votes to be under consideration for a release in the NEXT YEAR OR SO.

Ah well, if TechSmith want's to turn their back on "X" number of customers and their money. That's their prerogative. 
I've had some free time, so I've been revisiting my Photoshop tutorials. There's been some revisions to the death of SnagIt notes.

In this user to user forum.It's a safe bet you didn't make Bills day.

Bill started this thread.
He has been using SnagIt since Version 1. He want's SnagIt Note's brought back.
You offer no words of support or even contributed positive support to his request/question at this time.


This tread isn't about me or you.

If you can't support Bills request. Maybe you should consider staying out of it.

No sense in any of us getting heated, THey will just close the thread.
We need to MAKE SURE they are counting correctly and not ignoring certain threads that should be combined to get an accurate total. There were a couple of issues that have been spread over many threads that never seem to get enough votes

LOVE the comment: "It's not who votes that counts, it's who counts the votes"

Reminds me of another I heard: "Figures don't lie, but LIARS can figure!"

That one has been attributed to Stalin although there are scholarly opinions that he may not have said it. Most of their reasoning though, points back to the idea that he very well could have said it. But that is another issue
