Maintain a consistent look and feel with themes

Snagit themes makes it easy to create and share a set of custom tool styles, called quick styles, to create consistency in your images. Set the theme colors so that shapes, arrows, and text always match your brand guidelines.

To use Quick Style themes, select a drawing tool in the Snagit editor. Then, look to the properties panel to see the available quick styles. Click the drop down to choose a different theme.
