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.
We really appreciate the level of detail all of you went into to help clarify what you’d want out of this. Understanding the use cases really helps our devs, designers, writers, testers, and myself.
There is another item related to rulers that I’d love to get your thoughts on as well. I created a quick survey to get more clarity on if arrows with right angles (or easier to use bezier arrows) are more important than rulers, so it’d be great if you all could weigh in there too.
Here are the definitions of what the statuses mean for Ideas.
Here is the overall vote count for the rest of the Ideas in this round up.
Chris, I agree with Rick G about having both snapping and rulers. Both of them have different functionality. Like I say, different users think differently, "What is good for the goose might not be good for the gander".
I think we should have both snapping and rulers.
Surprised to find that QAT, Rulers, Snapping and Alignment guides did not garner enough votes.

For those interested in beta testing the next version of Snagit, please fill out this form. (Some of you have reached out to me directly, I already have you signed up, no need to fill out the form)
We have some Snapping changes (only in our Mac beta at the moment) that we’d love your feedback on. We expect the beta to start next week and it’ll last around a month.
Have a great weekend!
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.
If you are currently paying for maintenance, this update is included for free.
I run Fiber so my update took only about 5 minutes (lucky me!). It could be the Techsmith server overloaded with others updating it too. Some of the software companies do not learn that in order not to overload their servers with live updates, they should allow updater to download the file to the user's destination of choice and let the user install it, that cuts down on the bandwidth issue for live updates for the companies. Thanx Joe Morgan for pointing out the download location.
When I was updating, I did not see any activity on the screen and the "Updater icon" was present in the taskbar so I knew something was going on. The disappointment was that after the upgrade, my customized toolbar in the v2018 editor was reset to the original one. The odd part is that the HEX registry entry for the ribbon toolbar in v2018 and v188.8.131.52 is almost identical but the toolbars are different.
Disappointing, I have both versions installed v2018 and v184.108.40.206 and guess what I am going to be using, the old version because v2018 just does not cut it for me. I will still keep on updating in the hopes that ALL OUR wishes will come true by next Christmas and by than it will time for v2019, Ka Ching.
