Snap the region capture cross-hairs to the pixel corners of the region

By FAR the biggest hassle I have had with SnagIt for the past 10 years is manually aligning the corners of a region capture with pixel colors/corners of the region I'm trying to capture.

Snagit lets me use the arrow keys for fine-positioning of the crosshairs in the magnifier while I have the mouse button held down, which helps a lot.

But I sure wish you would use some magic-wand-like intelligence in the area covered by the magnifier to automatically sense the corners and snap the crosshairs to the obvious square 90-degree pixel colors, to make it easier to click and drag a rectangular capture region. The magic wand sensing can do this for irregular lines, so why can't it be used to detect and snap to the obvious corners of rectangular images, windows, etc. that I'm trying to capture?

Maybe you could give me a left-hand hotkey like the spacebar to snap to successively smaller corner or capture areas, in case there is a 1 px gray boundary around the window I'm trying to capture.

There are probably millions of users doing zillions of region captures who would appreciate something like this.
