SnagIt prevents Print pages options

We need to be able to choose how many pages we print of a multi-page capture. Scrolling Capture is a great feature, but we often only want a small portion of it.

SnagIt bypasses the normal Print dialog box that allows us to limit how many pages we print and forces us to print all of it--or hope we can abort the print partway through, once we get the pages we want. Please either add that to your dialog box or default to our printer's dialog box. (Other people would also like the other usual options, such as number of copies, etc.)

 [I am starting this as a separate conversation because other requests for this are scattered as single requests and I didn't want to go through hundreds of pages and Agree with them all.  Is Like the same as voting?]

The dialog box says it is selecting Default Windows printer, not the actual printer I use.  (And selecting my usual printer doesn't result in any more options.)  So maybe the lack of options might be a function of the Windows default printing.  I've seen that same crippled print dialog box sometimes when you use a web page's print link, but it seems unusual in an actual application.

Now that I look at the print dialogs for other applications, like Word and PDF, I realize the Print dialogs that offer more of the basic options are not from my printer but from the applications. So it appears SnagIt needs to build a better Print dialog within the application.

I'd be delighted if my SnagIt print dialog said it would use the Windows default printer.  Instead it chooses a printer that is NOT the Windows default!

Even though it says it's the Windows default printer, it is not actually landing on my default printer that is listed in the pulldown.  So while it is actually printing on my chosen default printer (Canon MX410), the "Windows Default printer" appears to be some crippled, crude printer dialog that is outside of all applications and has hardly any functionality.  I think it's only there for when programs don't have a very functional printer function within their application.  I don't think it's meant for a full-feature program like SnagIt.  Looks like another problem SnagIt needs to fix in its Print dialog.
