As programmer the Text capture feature was very, very useful for me. Just right now trying the latest version of Snagit I see that text capture feature has been removed!. Why?.

Thank you for your continued feedback and interest in Snagit.  We originally made the decision to drop text capture based on a variety of reasons, the biggest being that continued changes in OS support caused significant ongoing development efforts to try to maintain what proved to be a feature that continued to degrade due to those same OS changes.  In the intervening time since that decision, things have not changed significantly.  At this time there are no plans to bring back text capture.  That being said, we are listening, and hear the value this feature offered.  We will continue to consider alternative approaches that could allow us to bring text capture back in some form, but to be clear, at this time we have not found a suitable alternative. 

As always, thanks for your feedback!
