The interface in the 2018 version of Snagit has been updated. A notable change is we found the cursor capture to be on by default. Even if the setting was turned off before Snagit was updated, it was turned on after updating. After a little investigation, we found that the setting is even easier to find and control now… if you know where to look.

It only takes two steps to keep the cursor from being captured in your images.

Right click the Snagit icon in the lower right Windows Task Bar and Open Capture Window.

Cursor Capture 1

Simply turn off the Capture Cursor setting and close (X) the dialog box.

Cursor Capture 2

It’s as easy as that!
