SnagIt: Set default save path for screenshots

I'm really not sure whether this should be classified as an Idea or a Problem, because it's both.  It's a problem that this hasn't been added yet, and an idea to add it.

There really needs to be a way to set the default save path for screenshots.  (On Mac, at least, I haven't checked Windows) The "Autosave" location can be changed, but this is not exactly the same thing.  The Autosave directory is where the "project" files go, and in terms of saving images, incredibly polluted.

The autosave path is also NOT fully configurable, as there is *no way* to remove the "Autosaved Captures" portion of the path.

I have a Screenshots directory.  I've used it for years, my browsers know where it is, I have shortcuts to it, I use it multiple times per day.  I don't want it filled with non-screenshot files (.snagproj files).


We need a setting for "Default Save Path" which is separate from "Autosave"

There is currently a bug with Snagit Mac 3.3.5 where the last save destination is not being preserved.  After you choose a save location in the Save As dialog, it should default to that same folder the next time you load in.

More info on that issue can be found here:
