    The video you pointed to is for SnagIt version 10. Really long in the tooth!

    SnagIt 2020 has a capture type known as "Panoramic". The scrolling capture is still there, I believe, but based on the posts we often see here, it seems to fail quite often. In my own view, if you need scrolling, Panoramic is the way to go.

    I have to agree with Rick.

    A lot has changed since your last version Stan Zukowski.

    As Rick mentioned, the scrolling capture is a hit and miss anymore.

    Most experienced Snagit users i know use the Panoramic scroll feature.

    It's much better.

    Well, that's a big "duh" on my part. Thank you! I tried panoramic and it worked perfectly.

    Other than the manual scrolling of the window, it netted the same results as "scrolling capture" with one significant exception -- it actually worked :^)

    Given the problems with scrolling capture since day one, I wonder why they bother keeping it. (Rhetorical question!)

    LOL, over the years I've observed a phenomenon here in this forum as well as others. And folks regularly HOWL and call TechSmith a bad sport and other names when features are removed.

    I'm not saying this is *THE* reason that the scrolling capture remains, but it seems like a plausible explanation. ;)

    I've never been a fan of the "auto scrolling" type of capture. Primarily, because I wish to be in control. And that makes the new Panoramic type of capture perfect for my own needs!

    Although, to be totally fair, sometimes I do see issues with it behaving. Not often, but they do emerge from time to time. 

    Cheers... Rick :)
