There was a recent update with snagit that allows you to take a snip it (using the snipping tool) and then it opens snag it to edit it. I clicked it but its very annoying, how do i remove this feature so that if i use snipping tool it doesn't automatically open snag it editor?

Thanks Paul, just a quick clarification for other users, this settings menu is found off the SnagIt Capture Tool and not the Editor.

Thanks.  Good feature in theory but I too found it too annoying to pop up every time I want to do a clip.  It would be better to have a popup option.

Yes, thanks. Annoying that it does this by default. Even more annoying that the option to turn it off is pretty much "hidden". I was looking in the Snipping Tool preferences and in the Snagit Editor options.  Who would have thought that the option in the Snagit Capture prefs controls ALL screenshots.

Ditto, very annoying, echoing the above.

Thank you.  I would never have figured that setting to be the solution!

So I have the opposite request. The (Win+Shift+S) shortcut is far more efficient than Snagit's capture button.  Is there a way to have that snipping tool open up snagit only, instead of opening the windows snipping tool editor AND snagit?

Hey Elijah, 

You should be able to alter the global hotkey for the capture (shown below), but you may not need too. The "Print Screen" key activates a SnagIt Capture the same way Win+Shift+S would in this scenario.


You may need to disable the Snipping Tool however to avoid a conflict, not sure. 

You can find the full hotkey list here

I tried everything above, but still when I want to make a screen print using the tool I prefer Snagit still comes on if I use the Print Screen button on my keyboard. Please  help.

I had the problem that snipping tool started then snagit opened and they were getting tangled up together. I have now disabled the integration (as above) and deselected Capture Preferences -> Capture -> "Open screenshots copied from system tools" and that seems to have done the trick. I have the General-> "Capture Window & OneClick" selected, so I have the little drop down capture button for when I want to change the capture settings, plus the short cut on Printscreen, so I'm happy with that. :)

SnagIt has two parts. The capture part that looks like this:



And it's from this part you click File > Capture Preferences.

Thanks Rick.
that worked. If you work for the app please have them move the preferences to the top level where it is auto-launching itself.
