    If you want a great work around, try the free Arsclip. It is a PORTABLE clipboard manager on steroids

    It will give you any sound file you want when you copy plus you can copy several things at once  ... then go there places and paste them individually. Permanent clips and folders. Shared database (I clip - you paste), replaceable parameters and a lot more that you may never bother with
    And it has a very small footprint

    I use "Copy All" frequently at home and work.  If I'm distracted for a moment or two, it's handy to visually confirm I did that operation and now am ready for the next step.  Snag-It 12 worked fine and I see this change in 13 as step back.

    Either an audible click, or visual indication would be really useful. I would have thought it was a really easy item to fix?

    In fact, not having any indication that the image has been copied, it could be really likely one could paste the wrong capture in, say, an email.

    yep same here. Would very much like to MOVE the Copy All button to the top LEFT as well.

    I just love Snagit, but this is actually one of the things that annoys me as well. I keep clicking on the "Copy All" button 2-3 times just to be sure that I've really done it, I guess every time expecting some sort of standard visual button click respond.

    As @Boswell points out, you want to be certain that your pasting the correct clipboard item in e.g. a Skype for Business conversation, where the file is sent immediately after pasting.

    What is up the Copy All button has still not been fixed! I just downloaded the latest update. Come on how hard is it to make the button change color or something. The "Share" at least opens to a menu. You could add a menu to the Copy All button that would pop out and have on it, "Done" and then go away at least that would be something!

    I totally agree with the above. Sometimes the Copy All works, sometimes it doesn't. When working quickly it's extremely easy to send the wrong image when emailing.

    I don't know too much about coding, but from what I do, the solution is simple, and an elementary extra to add.

    Control A + Control C works.
    I use the Arsclip clipboard manager that gives a sound when something is copied even when the copy all button is pressed
    They should add a flash to the button a sound and or a confirmation message that it actually copied

    I would like the Copy All button in the editor to change when I click on it.  (I am using V13) I'm not sure if it did in the old version and doesn't in the new one.  I use the dark theme but tried the light and also don't see any click indication.  I tried other programs (MS Office) and clicking on things gives a visual indicator. I find when in SnagIt Editor when I click to copy, I click a few times because I'm not sure if I clicked or not.  Thank you!!

    I came here to create a thread regarding this same problem. For some reason some apparently easy-to-fix problems are just ignored for years. Sometimes the argument is that not many user are affected by the problem. This cannot be the case here. That button must surely be used by a very significant percentage of users.

    The real problem here is the often sluggish and unresponsive UI. I often click a button to change tools, attempt to use the new tool, and discover that the button press has not registered and I still have the previous tool selected.

    Lack of response on the Copy All button was a serious nuisance, but I changed to Mac a few months ago (having used PC from the beginning).  

    On a Mac, a flag shoots out from screen top right: "Capture Copied - your copy is ready to be pasted" when using Copy All.

    It can't be that difficult to program something like this for PC?

    If it is, TechSmith guys, why not explain to us?

    I'm using Snagit 2019 and love it! The only thing I suggest is to add a click indicator on the "Copy All" button in the upper-right corner. When I click it, nothing happens that indicates to me that I clicked it. The other buttons along the top have some type of user feedback when I click them, but the "Copy All" button has none.

    Love the software. Quick UI request. When you click "Copy All" in the Snagit Editor, nothing "happens" in terms of knowing that the copy has done its thing. It does work (i.e. stuff does get copied to the clipboard) but it would be good if the button changed colour, was animated or something to tell us that it worked. Thanks for considering!

    I agree.  Very frustrating that button gives no indication you pressed it.  May seem to TechSmith like a small thing, but when you're a user who uses so many other programs that DO give button feedback, it stops you dead in your tracks. PLEASE add a flash to the button and even a sound or a confirmation message that SnagIt has responded to the user's request.

    Thank-you all for the great feedback about this.  We recently added a "Copied!" animation as a visual indicator when the "Copy All" button is clicked in our 2021.1.0 release on December 15th
