(This idea is something we’ve heard from customers over time from several of our sources of feedback. We’re posting it here to gauge how well this fits our users’ needs. So please let us know what you think.)


I really want to be able to be able to align objects on the canvas more easily.

Right now as a workaround until I have a better way, I use the Line tool to make a line, line things up with that, and then delete it afterward. Or I just eyeball it and tweak it with the arrow keys.

I would REALLY love to have guides to snap the thing I'm dragging to other objects on the canvas.

Hello all! Snapping on the Canvas was released today in Snagit 2018 for macOS. It's coming soon for Windows.

Here it is in action:


It snaps to other objects on the canvas and the edges and center of the canvas itself. It works well with Smart Move too. By even snapping to objects in your captured image.

Thank you to all the beta testers that gave feedback on how this worked!

Snagit 2018 is a paid update.
There is upgrade pricing available. You can upgrade from any previous version of Snagit and get this pricing.
