This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: I would like the text capture feature to be implemented on the Mac version of Snagit. (Formerly Snagit text capture on Mac?)

According to a post made on 9 May 2014 by Parker Hotchkiss, the Text Capture in Snagit 12 has been removed. See below:

With the release of Snagit 12, we have removed the Text Capture functionality found in previous versions. This decision was reached due to very low usage numbers and Snagit's increased focus on Video and Image capture. The code used for Text capture had become too difficult to maintain, such that updating it to work properly on newer applications and operating systems would have severely delayed our improvements to other areas of the code. The final version of Snagit that contained Text capture was our 11.4.3 release.

I have been using Text Capture for years now and all of a sudden it's gone. What is SnagIt going to do for me, as a paying customer for many years now, to replace this function ?
