Snagit Video Editing: Add 'Trim' option next to 'Cut' in selection pop-up.

Usually, I just want to save out one bit in the middle of my captured video. Intuitively, I select that part, putting it in the nice blue area.

The good news is I can export a GIF using just that selection. (It asks when I hit the 'GIF' button.) The bad news is there's no way to export the video of this selected area or to trim the sides of the selected area easily.

To trim the sides, I have to:
  1. Pull the red marker to the green marker, losing my end position in the process.
  2. Pull the green marker to the beginning.
  3. Use 'Cut'
  4. Pull the red marker to the very end.
  5. Pull the green marker to approximately where I originally wanted to have the end of the video be.
  6. Use 'Cut'
  7. Save the video.
It would be much simpler if there was a 'Trim' button next to the 'Cut' button that removed the non-selected area.

Also, when a portion of the video is selected, I'd love for a dialog similar to the one that appears when exporting a GIF to pop up when saving a new file (Ctrl+S the first time, Ctrl+Shift+S any following times). (e.g. 'Save Selection' and 'Save Whole Video').
