Why do I have to keep turning on Smart Move, and re-setting the detail level?

I love the feature, but it's quite annoying that it keeps turning off by itself, and resetting the detail level.

I think Smart Move shuts itself off from one  capture to the next  because it's a resource hog.

The move tool is used for 2 things.

1.   Moving things around the canvas. Which is an instantaneous tool to select and use.
2.  The Smart Move tool. That  takes several seconds for selections to become available for use.

I would be surprised if Smart Move gets used all that much by most people. Having a default tolerance setting "Detail" probably is best. Because unless you use Smart Move regularly. You wouldn't know where to start with a "Detail" setting. With several seconds to wait for  selections to be made.A default starting point seems like a good idea to me.

Smart move is an awesome feature and one of the main reasons I upgraded. If this feature gets more refined it becomes one of SnagIt's killer features.
