I don't have an answer of how to do it in Snag It. My response would be
to re-think the task: do you need to display the entire drop-down list?
I have long drop-down lists in my product, but I don't capture the
entire list, just a small part of it.

I'm trying to capture the contents of a long drop-down list; I have to
scroll to see all the selections.

The custom scroll capture isn't working for this; it seems to be meant
for pages of test, not a drop-down. It sometimes gives me none of the
selections, and sometimes it captures the bottom of the list, but it
never captures the entire drop-down.

I searched the SnagIt site and didn't find an answer. Surely SnagIt
(7.2.4) can do this?! Any suggestions will be appreciated.
