SnagIt: No captions? What am I doing wrong?

One way or the other I can't manage to get captions added to my captures.
Surely I must be doing something wrong, but I vainly tried to figure out what.

Anybody out there who can shed some light on this?

The idea is that, after capturing, text date/time is added, either in or outside
(tried both).

Whilst these are being displayed in the settings alright, they regretfully don't in the preview after a capture.

Hi Marcel,

Thanks for the feedback. I noticed that you have "Print captions at the bottom of the page" selected in your capture. Unfortunately selecting this option overrides any of the selections that you have made in the dialog. Having this selected also requires you to have the printer selected as the output for the capture or it will not display the caption on your printout.

If you turn that option off, your captions should work just fine and you will be able to print them from editor since the caption is part of the image. Thanks again for your feedback.
