I also wanted to post a great graphic that compares the various versions so, without further ado:
Congrats! Great going, looking forward to dive into the new features :)0
I'm glad to see the additional features, and especially excited to see the new Offset Magnification tool. I'm already finding it infinitely more useful :) Nice work!1
I'm liking 2021 so far!
Feature Request: The ability to set the default Canvas Color when creating a new image from the clipboard. It seems to mostly default to black and I would much prefer transparent.2
The feature related to template layout customization and multi-page template creation is going to speed up the workflow so those features are going to be great !!
I would love to see examples of how we had to do it before and how we can do it now.
I was wondering if we can add to 2 options for sharing: Whatsapp and Telegram Otherwise, if you are planning to add them, could you tell if it will be available in x number of months?
I am a foreigner, this is my second language. Now I have installed in the browser Grammarly so when I write, I can correct my writing errors :)
I was wondering if we can implement an English gramma corrector in Snagit.
I do understand that is too much work so a possible solution would be to allow a third-party software you choose, for example, Grammarly (that has the libraries with all the corrections) to interact with or to see the text we write inside Snagit.
By the way, I have corrected this text using Grammarly 4 or 5 times, and I only wrote a few lines :)
Did you fix the bug with All-In-One Scrolling capture in Chrome?0
The Scrolling Capture should have been made compatible with Chrome's latest version with the latest release of Snagit 2021. If it is still presenting an issue, I could create a ticket for you in order to try to troubleshoot if you are up to date.
I've installed this with Mac Big Sur and now my audio doesn't work. I've tried uninstalling the component and reinstalling, but my system blocks a developer called Rogue Amoeba, and nothing else works. I also tried your option #2 which is to Go > Go to Folder, etc., and that does nothing. Stuck - please help! I already created a ticket and the suggestions didn't work.Thanks
Hi Jennifer Roig-Francoli
Sorry to hear of the struggles; if you have tried all the steps listed in our support article that details what needs to be done to install the System Audio Component on Big Sur (including restarting the Mac midway through the steps in point 4 in that support article; note that rebooting at the right time is required and failure to do so will result in the fix not working) then you'll want to inform the agent assigned to your ticket so we can escalate the case as we have seen those steps work for supported versions on Big Sur with great success.
Thanks Alex R
I can confirm that the Scrolling Capture now works with Chrome browsers with the latest release of Snagit 2021.0
Thank you, Robert. I will try your suggestions and let you know. Much appreciated!
Just upgraded from v18 to v21 and exploring it now. Here is a really simple idea - put the major snagit version into the title bar!
It would also be handy if there was a more immediate way to select an Image > Time Delay option. In Snip&Sketch it takes just 2 clicks to start a capture with one of 3 delay types (none/3sec/10sec). The snagit all-in-one mode has a simpler approach which is not bad, but not adjustable(none/5sec). With panels that vanish when the focus shifts, it is really handy to quickly be able to choose time delays for the capture. Maybe have 2 capture buttons: no delay + one with the configured delay? Or maybe invent a multi-image-capture process, that records any ui changes over a 10 second period!0
Im in the trial today... 5 days left and just got a 10% offer... if I wait a few days more will I get another offer, maybe 20%? thx. Ps. As a Camtasia user of the past, I really like this product.0
As a daily Snagit user (best tool ever) I would rather not have Techsmith trying to convince me to purchase an upgrade when I already purchased the product with maintenance AND automatic renewal. The product is very aware of my licensing....maybe eliminate this unneeded distraction for those of us who they system knows don't need. Pretty sure you can figure that out.1
Do we have support for the Apple M1 Chip set yet?? I have a BETA of SNAGIT Version 2021.2.0 (94981) - is their a newer BETA - this very runs very well on my Mac Mini M10
Will there be any way to customize a template and save it for reuse soon? So far all I have been able to figure out is how to create the templates several ways, but not how to perhaps import a saved blank template with my theme already applied, but just with the images empty and the captions empty. I just talked with support and they said that the version 2021.3.0 does not support that yet.
Update! I found a workaround for now. Create the template just like you want, then in the tray, right click and duplicate. Use the new one to make your changes. Better than nothing, but being able to just save one to use again and again would be optimal.0
Robert R (or other Techsmith employee)...
When will you create the ability to have an online database (shareable) so that we can use the same database over different machines, such as laptop & desktop.
I'd say this is a MAJOR feature and something in this day and age should be available. In fact googling about this topic I see it's been stating "years" ago it was being reviewed!
Where are we in getting this MAJOR feature ?1
MANY YEARS ago, I requested a feature to allow multiple pointers from a callout. Others (at the time) also expressed the same interest.
This single feature would make me upgrade instantly. In my role as a provider of technical documentation to the mining industry, I have not seen any useful (TO ME) additions since the 2018 version of Snagit.
When a product reaches a certain stage of maturity, it does become difficult to add beneficial and practically useful features to keep users buying the product.0
Hi Fellas. Long time Snagit user.
I like v2021 and welcome its new features.
However it has its quirks.
Editor: It has a hard time refreshing once loading a new image. Also a harder time refreshing the library (at load and when you delete items)
Capture UI: For the most part works great. I only noted that it glitched a bit in rare occasions.
No crashes yet, pretty nice for the most part. Just wanted to report. Those problems are not present in v2020
