|Recent files thumbnail size||Select the size of the capture thumbnails in the Recent Captures Tray.|
|Automatically expand the canvas to fit objects||Automatically increase the size of an image when pasting or dragging objects outside of the current image.|

|Paste images as HTML for Outlook Express||Paste images into Outlook Express using HTML to allow the image to display correctly.|
|Embed images when sending email (Outlook / Outlook Express only)||
Snagit inserts the image directly into the body of an email message. Embedding images requires the email client to use the HTML format.
|Maximum recent files||Enter the maximum number of captures to display at a time in the Recent Captures Tray. Enter a number 1-15.|
|Automatically save new image captures in the Library||By default, Snagit automatically saves new captures in the library. If this option is disabled, any unsaved captures are closed and deleted when you close Snagit.|

|Prompt before deleting files||Display a message prompt before deleting files in Snagit.|
|Library location||By default, the library files are located in this folder: C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\TechSmith\SnagIt\DataStore\. To change the location, click the Browse button.|
|Always keep Editor running in the background||Snagiteditor.exe remains running in Windows Task Manager even if you close Snagit Editor. Enabling this option allows captures to open more quickly.|
|Delete cropped content||

|Automatically flatten pasted images||
In Snagit Editor, you can edit any objects on the canvas that have not been flattened. Once an object has been flattened it is a permanent part of the image and cannot be edited.
You can import images and videos from a mobile device into Snagit Editor. Turn on this option to allow sharing between a mobile device and Snagit. See Import an Image or Video from a Mobile Device.
