5 "Terrific Templates"

March 2020

I especially like the templates for creating your own professional looking step-by-step instructions. The templates are a definite plus and they can be saved in many different formats. Much better than starting from scratch.

This tool is the best! I used to use the stock Windows snipping tool but after i took a screenshot it was working out how to deliver the image. Now I use Snagit to produce training guides from the built in templates.
