I'm using SnagIt 11 and I just saw this tip:
Customizing Tools using Quick Styles
Now if I want to access my newly created Quick Style I have to scroll past the 'default' Styles before I can click this newly created Quick Style.
Is there a way to make my created Quick Style the default style ?
This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled
Can you the change default styles ?.
Remember Quick Styles row in Snagit Editor!.
In Snagit Editor, I only always use the Quick Styles section in the Image Style popup instead of the factory-made Image Styles. So it is annoying having always to click to bring up the Quick Styles. So please make the program remember the last used section and display the Quick Styles row after program start if I have used one of the Quick Styles the last time.
This seems to be a minor issue, but in a creative workflow every unnecessary click creates an annoying feeling which disturbs the creative process. And it is this small little things that make working with a specific program joyful and productive.
Snagit: Can I reorder / rearrange the arrow styles in the style gallery?.
When I select the Arrow tool, by default the Styles group in the ribbon displays the first six arrow styles of the 12 "Common Arrows".
In order to access styles I've saves as Quick Styles, I have to open the Style Gallery. Since I use the same saved quick styles over and over, is there some way I can move my saved styles into the top row so that I can select it directly from the ribbon?
If I right-click a common arrow, I get a menu that says "Remove from Quick Styles", but it is grayed out and non-functional.
Create the ability to allow users to rearrange/remove styles in Snagit.
I love Snag-it and use it a lot. I recently upgraded to the newest version. I love that I am now able to define my own frequently used image styles, arrow styles, text styles, etc by creating and saving Quick Styles.
To make this a super useful feature, I request that you enable users to completely remove (and/or rearrange or hide) your pre-defined styles. The reason is, that my personal defined styles are placed LAST in the pop-up window. This means I always must navigate past your styles (which I frankly will never use) and must click 3 times to use one of my own styles that I use constantly.
I would love to be able to position MY favorite styles at the very TOP of the lists so they are always in view and instantly available. Please please please...
Please allow for faster access to adjusted Quick Styles.
Please let me control the size of Torn Edges somehow. Yes - I know I can apply any adjusted style to "Quick Styles", but that is too many clicks away. I also know that I can create my own style which auto-torn edges at the end. Also a little bit too cumbersome when I forget to select the normal All-in-One style for normal captures.
My absolute favorite would be if I could assign a keyboard short-cut my Quick Style, so at will can choose whether or not to apply the torn edge. Another option would be if the adjusted Quick Style could appear as a separate icon in the top Quick Access Toolbar.
What if, as an alternative to having quick styles in the drop down menus, your most commonly used features/tools were stored in a separate "Favorites" box that could be rearranged to your liking? Would this help you, or would it cause problems that we might not be considering?
I'm not sure I'd like a Favorites box--I believe I'd rather see all my custom styles at the top of the gallery in which they belong. But the devil's in the details. I'm still smarting from the loss of the directory view you ejected because of your workflow. I have my own workflow and would like to see some way for all of us to get what we need.
Just do this SIMPLE thing
Allow us to delete the default styles, and put user defined styles at the top,
How easy is that we have been asking for it for like 2 years and you guy's have finally noticed????
like you said Jason this would make a big difference in the workflow in Snagit
"Big" is an Understatement, I believe it would make a Critical difference in the workflow
Please Please Please this is the single reason I don't like Snagit over Jing
1, this little thing smashed my productivity to communicating to my team over Jing
2, it's the one reason I regret replacing Jing with Snagit
3, It;s the one thing that makes me feel paying for Snagit was a total downgrade
all you need to do is listen to us, not Be like Microsoft and try to do a windows 8.1
in fact having no easy access to User Defined Styles is the Jing to Snagit equivalent of removing the Start Button
Just Put User defined styles at the top and allow us to delete the default styles
its all you need to do
Oh my God it would become "Jinglike" on Steroids and we would all suddenly be recommending your product.
Insane idea hey
Looks like I'm going to have to pay for this no brainer fix that should have been there from Day 1
Sorry, Frustration getting you guy's to listen to us, Garry
Default Styles, Gone and Snag it could Suddenly be one of those essential tools, till then, forget it, because it drives me mad every day, I really liked Jing, there was a flash of brilliance in that simplicity,
Imagine being able to tune Snagit down, so it became more Jinglike,, meditate to the words,Snag it then Jing, the the words them selfs seem to suggest how simple Jing was and how Snag it just became a major work flow obstacle, I would re-name the product, I would feel "Snag it" has bad undertones. Snag in Australian means a Barbecued Sausage, there is a lot in a name.
WE WANT TO BE ABLE TO CUSTOMIZE OUR STYLES BY PUTTING THE QUICKSTYLES ON THE RIBBON.
Now I don't know if this has been done yet with Version 12, which I upgraded to a few months back and DON'T LIKE compared to previous versions. This is a case of a good app getting overworked in the wrong direction, IMHO. But then, it may be that I am just too ignorant to know how to get this to work the way I like.
Every time I want to add a TEXT box to my pic, I have to select the drop down in Styles and then find my Quickstyle text. The default shown at the top has too large a font size for my use.
Are we still waiting...hoping for this feature or has it been done and I simply am not aware of it?
There is a reason why we create QUICKSTYLES. We do so because we need them more than the default styles, which are just the starting points. Why not put these default/base foundation styles in the dropdown and make the Quickstyles the ones that show on the ribbon?
It has been one of my most used tools.
But seriously, I just don't get why they keep having to change it up so drastically. It was really a darn good tool and really easy to use.
Now, it takes way more time to do what used to be quick. That's not productive, but counter-productive.
If it weren't for the profiles I had to recently create using Version 12 to do my daily screen captures, I'd go back to an earlier version.
Hope they don't do to Camtasia what they did to SnagIt, because I've been using Camtasia for years also and don't want it monkey'd with.
I just installed snagit 12 (used to work with 11) and completely agree with all the above.
It's not an improvement, and I will probably switch back one of these days.
The user interface takes more time and is less transparent and easy, and the quick styles are a pain in the ass. It only shows 3, I can't rearrange them and I always want other ones.
Why not put the user defined ones on top and show more then only three!!
Also; when you draw a quick style the UI switches to 'edit'. I have to click on 'tools' to change background color and border e.g. Why not show both things in the ribbon, there plenty of room!
I'm disappointed with this new version!
I would like my custom quick styles to default to the top of the styles box or have the ability to organize them to a way that suits my needs.
Also, please add quick styles for color fill. It's very time consuming to have to keep going to the color picker for the same color over and over again on large projects.
Pretty please with a cherry on top?
create a new style that I frequently use I put it to Quick styles tool bar. It
is places at the end which is not ok. I created it because the styles already
created in the tool bar are not useable (I mean not useable for me as I do not
want to use them). To be able to use the one I have just added there I need to
scroll the styles in tool bar and select the one I have created. I would like
to see this one on top to avoid scrolling. I would also like to be able to
manage quick styles and remove that are not useable for me.
