I've just been extracting the data from an database system. As far as I could see there was no way to copy the field names, though I could see lists of them on screen - with over 100 tables, some containing 150 or so fields, typing these field names could have been a very tedious and error-prone task. However, using Snagit's text capture feature the task was accomplished easily, saving hours of work - in a few seconds the long lists were turned into usable text, with complete accuracy.

To enable this I had to open an old copy of Snagit - version 11. It is a pity you removed this feature from the product. On the occassions I've used text capture, it's worked very well. Assuming you're non planning to reinstate it, perhaps you could allow current Snagit uers to download this version in the future.

Anybody can download and install older versions of SnagIt if they want to.

Just go to this webpage.

You can activate older versions using your current activation key.

However, the key used must be for a newer version of SnagIt.

Thanks Joe. That's good - I didn't know that.
