This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Can you change Snagit 12 or 3 to capture directly instead of choosing image or video?

Screen capture is now a 3 step process:
1. Press print screen
2. Select capture area
3. Select type of capture video/screen

It used to be a 2 step process. Just print screen then capture area. 

Why make Snagit a more inefficient process.

ps: Techsmith don't like criticism. I have posted this 3 times and they keep deleting it from forum.

Hi Tony - We put together a webcast that explores some of the how and why behind the decisions we made with this Snagit release, along with how this fits into the broader TechSmith roadmap. You can jump straight into the segment about Snagit and hear from some of the folks who were involved in the process. The summary version is that we made this change to accommodate people who are using Snagit for the first time. Which is why we also wanted it to be easy for experienced users like yourself to switch back to the familiar workflow.
