Use the Alt Key to Align Annotation in Snagit

Tired of inserting a line or stamp or an arrow head in your snagit screen capture only to have to go back and move the endpoints? This typically happens when you've already got some vector based artwork on the capture. Try this:



Instead of inserting and then moving or stretching, try holding the ALT key down while placing your annotation. Now you can insert it anywhere, even on top of existing annotation.

Works for me! See this in Action below.
