Where do I find the original URL of my web captures in Snagit 12?

I know it has been taken out when moving on from 11.3->11.4, same as folders view.
But I think this is quite a handy feature.
Sometimes a screenshot of a part of a website is taken, but as time goes by, one might have forgotten which site it was.

The URL-tag was/is handy.

Does Techsmith have a solution for this?

Thanks

Hi Mike

Looks like you can still "sort of" have it but it may require an extra step. Not sure about that as I really didn't use that feature in the previous versions.

But I'm able to capture the URL manually and insert it as a Tag that will show up when I click the Library view and click the image. Perhaps the new workflow wants or expects it to work that way?




Cheers... Rick :)

Hi Mike - The original URL of a captured webpage is still stored automatically, at least for captures taken in Firefox and Internet Explorer (based on limited testing on my machine). You can right-click an image in your Open Captures tray or you can hit the Details button in the Library tab to see the URL and other metadata.



URLs are not being captured for me when using Google Chrome; I checked in with the Snagit team and it sounds like this is a bug on their list to fix.

I find this to be a really useful feature, as well, when I want to cite the URL of my source or go back to get an updated screenshot, for example.

Ah there...!
 
Many thanks indeed.
I wouldn't have found it myself to be honest.

Again, thanks.

Returned to 11.3 - for me - too many things aren't 'workable' in v12
