Snagit on Mac is crashing when I try to capture windows. The program doesn't quit but the menu icon disappears and the window capture doesn't start. Relaunching the software brings back the menubar icon but I can't capture windows or screens from the program.

Hi Shaun,

We're really sorry for the troubles you're having. We have a known issue with our "Window Capture" mode, where certain menubar applications cause our capture process to fail. If you don't mind, could you try closing your other applications that run solely from the menubar, and then try Snagit's window capture again?

Also, can you create a help ticket with our Technical Support department so we can get you up and running, I believe there is a workaround for this particular problem?

It looks like it relates to Chrome. When I quit Chrome everything works as expected.

Hello and good afternoon, Shaun.

I think I may have a potential solution for you on this - but I'd really like to get a case in on it so we can follow-up more easily if there are further issues still. We'd really like to make sure you can use our software without the conflict with Chrome.

If you'd be willing to access the above link, and create a quick support account with us, you can even put the subject line with Attention: Nick to make sure I get it as soon as it comes in. I'm looking forward to hearing from you - take care and I hope you have a nice afternoon.

I'm experiencing the same problem with 1.0.3. Is there an update to this issue?

We've got this knowledge base article. ( ). I would try this first and if you're still having problems, please open a ticket with our Support team. ( )

I've not heard much activity around this issue for some time, but I'm confident Nick, or another person in Support can get you up and running again. Sorry for the issue!
