Snagit11 Windows - Callouts with 2 or More Tails?

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Snagit callouts need two tails!

The manual says  "To add another tail, Control-click on the callout and select Add Tail (Snagit on Mac only)."

Does this mean that PC users cannot create a callout with 2 or more tails without creating 2 bubbles and whiting out the area to make it appear as 2? If we can, how? I don't see a way so far.

That's right it's not possible without overlapping two callouts.  There's no need to white out anything though.  Just copy one and place it over the other with the tail in a different position.

When I copy a callout in Snagit 11.3 for Windows, the callout copy does not have anymore the marks to move the tail. This clearly seems to be a bug.

But anyway, overlapping a callout with an other callout would be a cumbersome and ugly workaround. Please allow callouts with more than one tail natively in Snagit for Windows!
