Personally, I like the functionality of WinPointer -- got it free from
PC Magazine years ago, when they still saw the Net more as place to
share than to....but I digress). Anyway, the latest iteration is at http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1759,1735444,00.asp. If you hunt a bit,
you might still find a free copy, too.

Subject: SnagIT question
I'm using SnagIT 7, and wondering if there is a way to select multiple
areas on the same jpg for the Spotlight & Magnify feature. For example,
I have two areas that I want to highlight using the "Dim Background"
feature, but unless there is a way to select them both simultaneously, I
can only do one.
I don't want to have to draw circles using Microsoft Turd's (sorry, it's
been a bad Word day for me and someone I was trying to help earlier)
