Please implement Spotlight and Magnify features in the Mac version of SnagIt.
They are really useful on Windows.

Other threads seem to have been concluded, but other people kept adding comments requesting these features. I want this to show up as a main topic and gain focus.

As for spotlight, keep the requests coming.

You're off target.  The feature being discussed here is the equivalent of the Windows "Spotlight and Magnify" feature.

Please include the feature as it appears in the Windows version under the "EFFECTS" menu called "Spotlight & Magnify". Would love to see this feature in the Mac version. PRETTY PLEASE!!!

Come on, Snagit. This is getting ridiculous. Spotlight and Magnify on the Windows version was something I used daily. Now that I'm freelancing and using a Mac, I miss this feature and die a little every time I want to use it and can't. What's the hold up? This thread is now six years old.

Wow, I've let me getting blend by the advertisements and other features. Spotlighting-Areas is almost available in every good Mac Screenshot application, even most free ones offering it. And the software I thought would be the top-dog in the market doesn't offering it? (after already a 7 years old feature/port-request)

Sorry, I don't like to gloat, but that is hilarious. :*D

But in a sad way, if you think about the fact, that the Mac-User has to pay the same for a lag behind version and smaller feature-set.

PLEASE add Spotlight & Magnify Effect feature in Snagit for Mac! I'm a paying customer and Snagit advocate for about 9 years and this needs to be done already. I'd hate to have to stop upgrading and advocating the Snagit product!
