Thumbnail of whole image when zoomed in

It would be really useful if I could see a thumbnail of the overall image while I'm zoomed in, and drag the mouse within that thumbnail to navigate around, so that I don't need to keep zooming out to see what part of the image I'm looking at. Something along these lines...

Or, borrow a trick from Camtasia where while you are zoomed in, press and hold the Spacebar to temporarily toggle to a mode where you click and drag the canvas to bring hidden parts into view.

Cheers... Rick :)

I'm not able to make this happen. When I press and hold Space there's no response.

Sorry, what I posted was a suggestion for a SnagIt change. Not an advisory that it's there in SnagIt.

You expressed a desire to easily pan the image via a smaller thumbnail window. And my comment was intended to nudge any developer reading this thread that "hey dude or dudette, this exists in your other product - Camtasia, sure would be nice to see some consistency!"
