inserting page breaks

    I agree, this would be helpful.

    In Snag-It's editor you're editing an image file--not a document. (Even though the template looks like a page.)

    I think the solution will be to insert the image file in your word processing program and crop the image. Then insert the image again in page 2 and crop it to where you left off.

    Thanks for your reply.  The problem with that method is slow and messy and significantly defeats the convenience of using snagit.  I tend to save captured images as PDFs so in that case snagit breaks up the documents at random points and even trims off part of the document near the bottom and top margins.

    this is one of the most frustrating issues with Snagit.  Ivorgreen has described it perfectly.  One thing to add is that the snagit print preview appears to show handles begging to be dragged up to move the break point. it would be very useful to have this feature!  Without it the panoramic scrolling capture is of limited use.

    Yes PLEASE add page breaks, I've just create a tutorial and half the images are broken over pages in my saved PDF, hardly any good when the client prints it out.

  • John Panizza

    Yes, please add this feature.  I agree with everyone here.  I'm dealing with this dilemma now.

    Yes!  Please!  I have been checking back for this feature for years; praying they've added the ability.  But nothing yet.  

    Ivorgreen1:  My go to fix for this, which only works to print out the capture, is to:

    1. Adjust the capture & margins to at least look right for the first 2 pages (or just the first page if it's giving you fits)
    2. Drag the bottom canvas selector all the way up to the end of your current print area
    3. Print out those 1 or 2 pages
    4. "Undo" (to add the cut part of the capture back in)
    5. Drag the top canvas selector all the way down to the point where you stopped printing
    6. Repeat steps 2-5 until you've printed out the entire capture/document; adjusting margins/white space as needed

    If you wanted to save as a pdf you can use the above steps to get pages how you want them; then save the individual sections as "Page 1", "Page 2", etc.  The use Adobe to merge the pages into one document.

    The possibilities are endless and doable; it's just a LOT of extra work and time to it.  It would just be so much easier if Snagit would add some kind of feature to be able to insert page breaks or insert white space.  I mean if we're able to "cut out"  why can't we "add in"?  Seems like a doable thing, right?

    YES! I would use this Pagination feature all the time. Here is how I imagine it could work;

    [ ] I capture a long webpage as a panoramic image, by scrolling. (BTW: Using Mac, but found this thread in the Windows section).

    [ ] Snagit Editor displays the very long image.

    [ ] User selects to Paginate to Letter size, and Snagit suggests page break lines.

    [ ] User can drag the page breaks up or down as desired to avoid splitting images to next page.

    [ ] That's it. Print or save as a multi-page format, such as PDF.

    If Snagit will add this feature please let me know right away- I'll gladly pay the upgrade. Certainly a bunch more people have already stated they also want this page split feature.

  • John Panizza


    That's an excellent feature idea.  

    TechSmith, Please add this feature, SOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Vonelle G

    Please add. Otherwise, it takes time to adjust by going to Print Preview, then back to edit to move images up or down, then back to Print Preview. This process takes several tries to get it right and almost not worth it. Will use word instead.

    Unless I am missing something, this feature would be very useful when using "Image to Template". TO ME, without it, defeats the purpose of using Snagit for instruction.

  • S.B.

    The function that manual page breaks can be inserted / defined should definitely be integrated.
    As a software user, it is a question of effectiveness and efficiency in terms of workflow - and therefore it is also a question of costs ("time is money").
    I would like to be able to decide for myself where a page break should take place - notably to avoid cutting up text or images (especially in longer documents).

    In addition, it would be ideal to be able to specify in the software properties whether automatic or manual pagination is desired by default - whereby it should be possible to "toggle" this setting for individual documents.

  • deeprogrammer

    I too agree with the sentiments above. The template features that I paid extra for, by the way, are just about useless without the ability to at least be aware of where a basic 8 1/2 by 11 or 11 by 81/2 page ends so that a PDF document that is created from the template looks nice and usable.

    It really seems basic.

    This document took about an hour to make and I basically can't use it because that page break cuts off the image and it looks unprofessional.

  • Wallace

    Yes, 100% I agree and it is very complicated to manage using word or inserting white space. Please add the feature or a template where I can move the image around and just have the page break where I need it to break. Yes, when I print a SnagIt capture it often cuts a sentence in half so it is unreadable. 

  • Bschultz

    I too really want this feature.

    I found a bit more simple of a solution.

    I created then clicked on the original image and created a duplicate. With the duplicate I cropped from the bottom up to about 12" and pasted this image on page one in Word

    I know, a 12" image on an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper but it worked.  I just assume that there is a slight difference between 12" in Snagit and 12" in Word

    I then duplicated the original image again and this time cropped down from top to the same point I left off with the first image and then cropped up from the bottom until I came up with a good break point around 12" tall and pasted this on page 2 of a Word Document 

    I just kept repeating this process until I had all of the pages copied and pasted to work.

    Not elegant but it worked.

  • deeprogrammer

    So I figured something out. If you put a blank version of all the components in your template the page break happens naturally. The page looks great, the process has some additional steps, but it works and it was pretty easy once I figured it out.

  • iG

    Hi deeprogrammer,
    If possible could you please clarify your above suggestion.  Specifically what do you mean by  "put a blank version of all the components in your template"?  Also what template are you referring to?

    Thank you
