When capturing a panoramic image in Snagit, can the selected region display dimensions in inches rather than pixels?

I capture panoramic images almost 100% of the time. When I draw my capture window, using the crosshairs, around the region I want to capture, the dimensions of area to be captured are displayed in pixels. Can this be changed to inches?

A lot of my screenshots end up in MS Word, so my images can only be so bid. I prefer to include my images at 100% rather than shrunk and potentially blurry. In a table, for example, my images typically shouldn't be more than about 5" in width.

If the capture window could display inches rather than pixels, I'd save a lot of time redoing screen grabs. This would also be especially useful when capturing excel files...often times, column widths need to be adjusted to fit on a page in Word.

If snagit can't do that, your fallback is . . .
If you are interested in keeping the pic 5" or less, what's the dot pitch of you monitor?  Mine is 96 dpi, so a 5" width is 480 pixels wide.
Now if I were on my other system, 4K - 28" monitors, 154 dpi, a 5" picture is 770 pixels wide.
