  1. Show Snip in system tray instead of taskbar

    I like the floating bar, but I don't want it to show the icon at my toolbar, I would prefer it in the tray area.

    • Auto-Update Error results in Snip being uninstalled

      This is happened to me on every auto-update thus far. I'm no fan of auto-updates (hope this is just during beta).

      Get MSI error in event log ... Product: Snip -- Error 1303. The installer has insufficient privileges to access this directory: C:\Users\stephen\AppData\Local\Snip. The installation cannot continue. Log on as administrator or contact your system administrator.

      You want me MSI logs? This is a repeating issue on my PC on W10 RTM and W10 Insider.

      • Latest Snip build is broken

        Snip worked fine until the update i got on the 9/26. even after uninstall, reinstall, reboots, removing registry entries over and over, hotkeys now do not work. they will work temporarily if you switch show on the desktop on and off again and set new keys. A restart makes snip broken again. At first before an uninstall and reinstall, it was throwing up a memory referencing error for snip.

        A friend of min first discovered the bustedness of snip having the same memory error and hotkeys not working at all no mater what they were set too like myself on…

        • Highlighter is missing

          I use the highlighter feature in the native Snip tool daily, it's a MUST HAVE for me.

          I would also love the ability to draw a straight line with the highlighter. When highlighting a row in a table or code, it's hard to draw a straight line with a mouse. Having a "straight line" feature would make screenshots to customers more professional looking.

          • Retain docked state

            Snip should retain the last docked state. It redocks itself to the top middle corner every time I restart my machine.

              • Auto-update of SNIP doesn't seem to be working.

                I had to manually install again to get SNIP to update. Once reinstalled I got a new version. Happened on multiple machines.

                • Multi-monitor support

                  When I hit the "Capture" button, everything on the screen gets magnified by about 25%, which cuts off the top/bottom/edges of my desktop. And the dotted-red window outlines don't match up with what's shown.

                  No doubt it's due to my display setup. I have a Surface Pro 3 (a high-DPI display) with an old external monitor (low-DPI), on Windows 8.1 Update. In Display Options, I have "Change the size of all items" set to the second-smallest size (I'm presuming 125%, but the slider control doesn't say), with "Let me choose one scaling level for all my displays" unchecked. The external…

                    • Make a "Hotkeys" item in the settings/about.

                      Hotkeys are mentioned in the notification when you close the page-top docked item of Snip, but I can't find references to these hotkeys anywhere. Make these findable.

                          • Trigger snips from keyboard shortcut to capture dropdown menus just like OSX

                            It is often required to grab a screenshot showing a dropdown menu item being selected. Unfortunately with this and the standard Snipping Tool the menus disappear as soon as you try to capture. Mac OSX allows a screen capture triggered by a keyboard shortcut which leaves the screen undisturbed and allows you to capture the whole or just an area of the screen. Would be useful to have this in Snip.

                            • Add "one click/tap" button for full screen capture

                              I see the drop down box for the app is movable, that is great! However, the capture icon/button forces users to tap it once to start a capture and then tap again to perform a full screen capture. use the existing button and functionality for a partial screen capture and add a new button with one tap functionality for a full screen capture? Thanks for taking the time to review my idea, I can't wait to see new updates! Question: since Snip auto updates, how do we know when it has been updated? Is there a dialog within the app…

                                In the moment there are no settings. There is just an option to give feedback und such things. But I would like to change something like hide the icon in the taskbar or just show the programm when pressing the print button.

                                • Windows 10 Multiple desktop support

                                  Now that windows 10 has support for multiple desktops, it would be awesome if Snip could as well!

                                  That might be best served by some of the other suggestions such as taskbar icon support, etc.

                                  Currently, snip is only available on Desktop #1

                                    Thanks for the suggestion Greg. Snip actually works with Win 10 virtual desktop in that you can move the snip app to any of your desktops. I do not believe Windows supports one app running on multiple desktops simultaneously. Your other suggestion will be delivered this week.

                                    • automatic capture with mouse click in a specific window

                                      Just like the screen capture program in windows server ( doesn't work most of the time BTW) that takes automatic screen shots when clicking the mouse. Very helpful when recording installation or a complex procedure.

                                      • Post release notes

                                        In one comment here I read that new version has been released with "Highlighter" option. I cannot however find that in my Snip, so either it hasn't auto updated (how does it auto-update exactly? via Windows Update, via Store, something else), or it is well hidden.

                                        I suggest:
                                        a) post release notes somewhere including version number
                                        b) display version number in Snip
                                        c) describe somewhere how these new features are used

                                          Thanks for the feedback Jussi. Highlighter will be available this week. When we ship that, we will also provide an article that describes what we what’s and what’s coming. I will link to the article from our uservoice home page. Also, we will have an in-app way of informing users of what changed. This will be delivered in the next week or so.
