SnagItEditor v2018 - Automatic backup of themes, colors, quick styles, toolbar etc.

Just did a clean install of Windows.
Installed SnagIt and would like to have the toolbar, my colors, callout boxes, arrows, shapes, etc. back again.

Basically one has to re-create everything from scratch.

IF.. if a backup has been made of all the files in
C:\Users\,UserName>\AppData\Local\TechSmith\Snagit
one might try to restore those.

However, I discovered that I got my (userdefined) colors back only, i.e. all the other stuff, they remained as default. Meaning I have to define various boxes, borders, arrows, callouts again.
(Outline, fill color, font setting, bla bla)

AFAIK there is no proper backup of all those settings.

My suggestion: have some kind of a backup option.

Sometimes custom settings are lost...  not sure why.  Happened few times.  It would be nice to have a backup of settings and config.

Happy with the many 'votes'. It doesn't seem to be some weird idea...

However,  I believe folks at TechSmith may start 'considering' (considering only..) with a minimum vote count of 275/300 or so... :-)

It's not just a numbers game.  Sometimes items that score less than others will be done simply because they're easier to do, or are more aligned with strategic goals.
