When I delete a video or image the software brings up the editor and I need to click "library" to delete more

Is there a way that you can set SnagIt to stay on the library when you are deleting numerous photos or videos. It's very frustrating that the editor view opens after deleting something, then having to click back into the library.

The library stays open for me when deleting  or removing. It jumps back to the editor only if you are double clicking to "edit" it. The way around it is to go to the library and change the zoom level (bottom center) so you can see whet you are doing

Hi croovers, thanks for the inquiry! I'm sorry to hear of your frustration and hope I can help.

To avoid being kicked over to the Editor when deleting files in the Library, ensure the file(s) you wish to delete are not present in the Editor's Recent tray (this results in being taken to the Editor view). If you delete a capture that is not present in the Recent tray, you will remain in the Library view.

This functionality can definitely lead to frustration! I've flagged this issue for our development team so they can assess/investigate it.

Thanks,

Nick
