Sniping Tool is moving...
« on: January 30, 2019, 01:41:18 PM »
Today I tried to use the Snipping Tool, but I got the message that it is moving. Actually, it's been replaced by Snip and Sketch tool. There are some additional tools as the ruler, the protractor and the image crop (but no arrows yet...  :)  ) There is also the option Open with, so you can open your screenshot with the drawing program you want.

Having used the Snipping Tool for so long, I'm still trying to get used to the new Snip & Sketch.  There has been a lot of improvements to it since it was first introduced.

Same here. I really liked the Snipping Tool and don't really see a need to replace it.

I wish I knew what MS means by it is "moving"?

I find the use of the ruler very useful, but I didn't find a way to move it/change the angle.  :-\

Don't think there are any issues loading. It loads, but we get a notice saying it is moving. It still works just fine - for now.

That's curious, win73.  It still has the same notice on the latest Windows Insider Build.

That seems odd. When I call up the Snipping Tool, the pop-up window I get is the exact same one as seen in DR M's screen shot. However, if I hit the little up arrow ( ^ ), the lower half of the window closes a bit and you see, "Snipping Tool is moving...".

You don't see either of those?

I find the use of the ruler very useful, but I didn't find a way to move it/change the angle.  :-\

I'm answering to my self and this is funny, but I found how to rotate the ruler!

1. Put the mouse arrow on the ruler
2. Use the scroll wheel of the mouse to rotate in any angle the ruler.

It's good.  :)

MikeW, I think this change is only for Windows 10 users.
