Agreed, it would help to spell it correctly.

As far as why I use HyperSnap DX, it's because it's the tool our
department uses (although one person here does use SnagIt). I'm not sure
whether the powers that be want me to be a maverick.

Possibly "canvas" rather than "canvass" would yield results. Possibly

What's special about HyperSnap DX, anyway?

I'd like to recommend a terrific open-source app called "FastStone
Easy to increase canvas size. I've also used the capture tool in
Pro, and it, too, provides an easy way to increase canvas size without
affecting the image.
