There have been several posts about synchronizing SnagIt libraries; however, I did not find a formal application request. Here it is... I would suggest that Snag it work with OneDrive or have their own cloud-based library so that I can share libraries with another of my computers or my co-workers.

This is currently possible, but only between mac versions. The snagit capture format is not compatible between mac and windows. 

On mac you can change your autosave folder (advanced preferences) to something in a shared cloud folder, like iCloud Drive or Dropbox. This will sync that one machine. Then on any other machine, change your autosave folder to that same synced folder. It will prompt you to merge your autosave folders and then they should sync automatically from then on.

Note: it is a good idea to backup your autosave folder before making a change like this.

I am on PC. Can we get this considered in a future release?

*PLEASE* implement this feature.  I understand it's hard to untangle a single tenant only DB for multusers.  But it's 2020 and I'm sure quite a fewof your users use it on multiple machines.   I'll settle for an easy way to shuttle chunks of the library even if it means using a CLI update/insert statements.   Pointing it to a box/cloud location doesn't work because it keeps the SDF file open and never syncs fully.

I use a Mac at home but am forced to use PC at work.
Currently I am having to save my snags as png files to OneDrive and then open in SnagIt on work PC.
This is a terrible workflow.
Please figure out a way to do it better.
