Learn how to share your favorite Quick Styles between computers or with others. Download the .snag files at the bottom of this tutorial to add styles from previous versions to Snagit 13. 

Please see the tutorial on Quick Style Themes to learn how to quickly export sets of quick styles for easy sharing.

In this tutorial, we'll walk through how to transfer styles from prior versions to Snagit 13.

Build a SNAG File to Share Styles 

Build a .snag file to share your custom styles between computers or with others. The .snag file automatically saves the properties of the objects on the canvas, so you don't have to remember any of the specific settings. 

  1. Open the version of Snagit Editor that contains the styles that you want to share. 
  2. Select File > New. Make sure to select a canvas size that can fit all of the styles. 
  3. Select a tool and then choose a Quick Style from the properties. Or, set up a new Quick Style. To learn how, see the Add a Quick Style help topic. 
  4. Add or draw the style on the canvas. 
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until you have added all the styles you want to share. 
  6. Select File > Save As
  7. Enter a file name and select the SNAG file format. 
  8. Click Save

Transfer Styles Into Snagit

After creating the .snag file with the desired styles, you can transfer the styles from the .snag file into your current version of Snagit.

  1. Open the .snag file in the current version of Snagit.
  2. Right-click on a style on the canvas and select Add to Quick Styles.
    Add to Quick Styles option in context menu
