This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Can you change Snagit 12 or 3 to capture directly instead of choosing image or video?
Snagit failed at each one of these tasks. It was not clearly communicated I was updating to a new paid update, I only realized it after being asked if I wanted to continue my trial. Updates are usually reserved for updates within a version, when there is a paid update with major features I am usually notified of the enhancements and cost. I am asked to make a decision, with SnagIt 3.x I was told I was only given the standard Apple update screen. I am told there was red writing at the bottom of the update notice but I did not see it nor would I have expected a paid update to be presented this way.
During the trial period, I have since reverted back to 2.X I noticed an extra step of being asked to choose if I wanted a video capture or a screen capture after my capture was completed. I don't get the logic of being asked after the fact, nor do I like the extra step. Tech support tells me there are simple work arounds but I don't want a work around no matter how simple they may think it is. If you read a post from Daniel , he claims this added step others have complained about is for new users. Except for the logic of why you would present this option after the fact, I get adding novice steps, they should however be a preference setting to keep it simple and not add the extra steps for those of us who have been using the program for many years. I am OK with change, well some change but it needs to be thought out properly, there are challenges with Snagit , especially in the text area, there are great ideas and feature request that some people have posted. Why would SnagIt ever release a version like this and expect people to pay for it. I will be holding off on paying for an update until I have an option of turning off the Novice mode or it is removed.
