A bit disappointed with Sametime 7.5.1 screen capture annotations

As previously mentioned I upgraded to Sametime 7.5.1 yesterday to follow along but also because of the update to the screen capture utility which I use a lot. Although the new functionality is nice it falls short of actually replacing manually using SnagIt! that I otherwise use for screen capture. I know that SnagIt! does a lot more, but when I need to capture some part of my screen and send it off I almost always need to highlight or annotate it in some way before sending it off. That being said I like the ability to automatically send the screen capture to chat partner(s) from the annotation window.

I would think that the basic required annotation tools would be:

  • Ability to draw basic geometric shapes (circle, square, line) apart from freehand
  • Ability to use different colors based on color picker
  • Ability to add text
  • Ability to add arrows
  • Ability to adjust line thinkness

I guess that the above can be consider a feature request… 🙂

  1. Sometimes, screen capture tool is not appeared when sametime 7.5+ talks to sametime 7.5+. However, this tool may be appeared when you log off and log on again without exiting the sametime
