In Snagit 12.1 I cannot set "Profile x as active profile". I always have to chose the profile again from the list. Snagit 11 allowed me to set one of my default profile as the active one for some captures by just clicking on the profile. It was easy to make some captures with one of the profiles only by clicking the red button. Then I changed the profile and made some more captures with the big red button.
Now I always have to take care to go to the list, chose the profile. How can I get back the easy way to determine the default profile?

Sometimes a "Workaround" is a good option. You could use SnagIt 11 to do all your capturing. "Even Video".

Then do all your editing in SnagIt 12. Most versions of SnagIt all share the same Data Store. So when you save a capture with SnagIt 11 it will be accessible SnagIt in 12's Library.

The only real drawback is that you cannot have SnagIt 11 and 12 open at the same time.

 The "Big Red Button" has been reduced to a One Trick Pony. But maybe that will change. We can hope.

The other option is to add Hot Keys to your capture Profiles.

Thanks, Joe. That will be exactly what I am going to do.

The Big-Red-One-Trick-Pony is not what I want to have. I need to change between the profiles in an easy way. My profiles are for different folders and filenames.

Regards, Pia
