Two things I really miss from a previous (2014?) version of Snagit

1. The screen capture reticle used to 'snap' to windows, so if I were taking a screenshot of the Chrome Mobile emulator it would perfectly snap to the dimensions of that view in Chrome. Now I have to manually select the area around the mobile emulator and hope it lines up.

2. Sharing to Google Drive used to be one click, now I have to click twice (first the Share button and then find Google Drive in the list of all the sharing options I do not use.)

If anyone knows of a way that I can have either of these features back in the latest version of Snagit please let me know!

Hi,

Good news, both are fixable!

For the first one, you'll need to make sure Snagit and SnagitHelper are both checked in System Preferences > Security and Privacy > Accessibility



For the Google Drive sharing, if you right click the Snagit toolbar and choose Customize Toolbar, then you can drag the Google Drive sharing button up to the toolbar to get 1-click shares.

Cool, thank you for the quick response Luke! When I go to Preferences > Security and Privacy > Accessibility I only see "Snagit 2019" and not "SnagitHelper2019". I'm running Version 2019.1.1 (94025).

Hm, when you start a capture, do you see this window? If so, press S and follow the instructions, maybe that will trigged the Helper to appear

If not, does checking Snagit2019 fix the issue?

Great, that fixed it -- I had to press 's'.

The "Customize Toolbar" option worked perfectly. Thank you! How do I enable the 'dark mode' theme btw?

It's a setting in Snagit currently. We'd like to have it tied to the OS in Mojave, but that gets weird with older OSs, so that'll have to wait a year I think.
