Switch capture modes during capture time

Too often people find themselves taking a capture with a hotkey, but then they find themselves starting a video capture. Then they remember that they had the Capture Window set to do a video capture because that was the last thing they’d done with Snagit. This is really frustrating. It’d be great if you could switch back to All-in-One or image capture right then. And not have to cancel your video capture, open the capture window, switch the tab, and then start a new capture.

This issue can be incredibly frustrating. It didn’t get the most votes or enough to put it in the top few, but we’ve heard of this in Tech Support and plenty of beta users have also expressed frustration. So based on the votes here and the conversations we’ve had with users, this causes way too much of a headache to go by without us taking a look at it. We will look at the other issues first because they did get more votes, but this will get some eyes on it after that. So, we are marking this one as Under Consideration for the time being, but just know it might be a little bit before we have an answer for you.

This will definitely require a bit of testing so if you’re interested in user testing or beta testing this, let us know here.

We appreciate your voting and your patience.
