Where is "Create Image from Template" on SnagIt 2020 interface?

I just bought SnagIt 2020. Instructions for "Create Image from Template" say to "Select Create button > Image from Template or File > Create Image from Template." I don't see any Create button and I don't see an option under File to "Create Image from Template." What am I missing here?

Are you looking in the editor? It could be you are expecting to see it in the capture interface.

Just answered my own question. These items on on the UI in the SnagIt Editor, not the Capture pane. But as someone new to SnagIt, that would have been helpful information to have found in the procedure steps.

Hello I just downloaded Snagit but even within my editor I don't have a create button. I hoped this thread would help but alas no luck.

Click where it says Editor and see if you then see it. Looks like you are viewing the Library.

Thank you for your reply. I clicked on editor and this is what I got. Still a mystery to me.

What do you see if you click Help > About? What version is reported? Sounds like you may not have 2020 open.

I got this through my institution - and I guess what I have is 2019 according to About? Too bad they dont have the easy create button in what I have, I was looking forward to using this program.

Well elizabeth.cytko,

If it makes you feel any better. That button is a "Gimmick" more than anything else.

With 2019 you can select several images in the recent captures tray. Right click and chose several options.
That advances you to the next logical menu.


The Create Button is located 1/2 a mile away from the recent capture tray.
You can click it and access less options.



 Its redundant from where I'm sitting {:>)

Regards,Joe
