I have Snagit 13 and when copying from the editor to the clipboard, it loses the transparent background. I noticed this only started happening over the last couple of days. No, I have not changed any settings. I am in the middle of grabbing screenshots for a PowerPoint presentation and while I could simply save them out as a .png, it used to work. I posted this in the wrong forum originally so I moved to the correct one. :) The suggestion was made to paste with keep formatting, however, that is not even an option.
