Ummm, hopefully you realize that you may have both SnagIt 8 and 9
coexisting on the same machine.
When I need a 9 feature, I crack it open and off I go. But most of my
work continues in 8. I find 9 to be too confusing with having to visit
multiple areas to get at the same things I could easily access in 8.
And yes, I'm well aware that I have that little area where I may add my
own icons. But even with that you are unable to be as productive using 9
as you were with 8. IMHO of course. ;)
Cheers all... Rick :)
