when you are working on a part of an image, and needs to change the
zoom it moves the image to a random area, where you were not working
before, when you felt more zoom was needed. It shold increase or decrease
the zoom AT THE AREA you were working.
- You cannot move/drag a zoomed image by pressing the spacebar and dragging it with the mouse.
You don't have minor adjustments, proportional to the zoom you are
using, to move a pasted image with the keyboard arrows. You have to keep trying to adjust the
over image using the mouse and this is often a painfull process
- Add numbers to increase and decrease field to the slide bars. Some times it's very very hard to adjust the slide bar or to guess which will be the correct number to put in the blank field. As in some slide rulers there are pre-dfined values, it can use also this values ou you can increase the velue bu units or steps.
This would help us a LOT!!!!!
You have a number of issues, let's deal with the easy one first - the ability to have fine control over the font size.
I totally agree. Would you mind raising this as a separate issue so that we can all vote on it, without it becoming confused in the other issues?
If I understand you correctly, the zoom too is working as intended, but you can control the placement of the zoomed section using the controls:
You will be pleased to see that, here, you have a slider AND a number you can enter. :)
I hope I have understood your requirement correctly
This is an inconsistency that they need to fix as well. In Photoshop, when you do this. The zoom holds right to the pixel that you have the cursor placed over and it works fantastic.
The only thing about Photoshop and SnagIt is that the image has to fill the canvas area either horizontally or vertically before the cursor locks onto any given cursor location of the image.
I do find it annoying you can't hold down the space bar to drag around the main image.
If you want to use the arrows to move something. Holding the shift key moves things one pixel at a time. And simply using the arrow keys moves things five pixels at a time.
As far as the slide bars go. Yeah there kinda clunky and not very easy to use I don't like him. You can click inside the numbered boxes. And use the arrow keys to adjust the numerical value up and down.
One thing that could be helpful in this process is to do what Microsoft Paint used to do. Offer a thumbnail view of the entire image with an outline depicting the zoomed in area. Then allow dragging the outline to reveal different areas. But I'm also probably more fond of the Space bar click and drag as Joe mentioned.
Another thought occurs from something I've seen with Adobe Captivate. Captivate offers a grid that can be made visible. Also, there is another option for snapping to the grid. But what's really super helpful is that you may configure the grid size. And whatever measurement has been configured for the grid size is also the larger measurement used when moving an object. A press of any arrow key results in one pixel movements. But if you press and hold Ctrl as you also press any arrow key causes the movement to occur by whatever has been configured for the grid size. So if you do this a lot, you can configure a grid size of perhaps 50 pixels to allow moving objects pretty quickly.

The spacebar is pretty much the norm in most programs to bring up the grab hand but as most of us know
Techsmith has to do it there way which is to use Shift+CTRL.
Works with most of what ever tool you are using when zoomed in on a image or capture.

However, if you going to zoom in a lot. You have to zoom in a just few clicks of the mouse’s wheel. Wait for SnagIt to catch up to your inputs from the mouse. Because it’s not a smooth zoom, it zooms incrementally. If you scroll five or six clicks of the mouse wheel. It can take several seconds for all of those incremental/individual zooms to take place.
Then you have to reposition your cursor because the zoom is going off target. To the point that if you don’t reposition the cursor, the targeted area will go off canvas altogether. Then scroll some more.
Rinse and repeat while still not maintaining target accuracy. Even one scroll of the mouse wheel cannot maintain accurate zooming with pinpoint accuracy. The area you have placed your cursor around is always in a different location after the zoom has taken effect.
I can only assume that you have never used high quality software that can zoom properly. Because if you had, you shouldn’t be satisfied with the performance of SnagIt.
So I created this be Vimeo video so you can see how well Photoshop does it, and my complaints with SnagIt.
