Two minor feature requests for SnagIt

1) 
I often need to screen capture zoomed parts of ...a print captures!
I would like to be able to do it in the SnagIt Editor, with a custom zoom level.
But obviously and as designed, it is not permitted.

Could you add in the SnagIt Editor Preferences, 
a checkup option to enable/disable screen captures inside the SnagIt Editor, please?

2)
In the SnagIt Editor, when I crop manually the screen capture, 
I often use the middle Left, and then the middle Right handles.

I would like to be able to crop both sides simultaneously
in order to delete the same amount of pixels.

*This could be done by maintaining the CTRL key down.
* It must also work with the middle Top, and the middle Bottom handles.

Thanks

Hi,

Good news, Snagit can already do the first item!

If you uncheck "Hide Snagit when capturing", you can screenshot anything in the editor



As for the 2nd item, thanks for the suggestion!

Are you sure, Paul?

I ask because it certainly seems I'm able to capture SnagIt with a SnagIt menu showing.

I just used SnagIt to capture these images:





Cheers... Rick :)

Yeah, but that's in the Editor window.  I can do that.  but not in the Capture Window Preferences.  I just get a beep from Windows

Could you capture a video with 'Hide SnagIt when capturing' turned off and then capture the images you want from the video?

Yes but TBH capturing with the Windows snipping tool and then cropping is probably easier
