Windows 7: Snipping Tool Bug

Snipping Tool Bug

Has anyone else noticed this bug with the Snipping Tool?

Snipping Tool Bug-capture.png

This is a Window snip of CPU-Z and I highlighted the name of the processor. Notice the blank area above the snip, and where the highlighted mark is. It is as though the highlighting and pen annotation are done on a separate layer which is superimposed on top of the image. Unfortunately, this layer seems to be out of alignment. Sometimes, the highlighter and pen don't seem to work.

I haven't used the snipping tool enough to feel that I know what is normal for it yet, but on the last time that I used it, I did see the blank area at the top, but haven't noted anything about the highlighting yet.

Never had anything like that happen.

I just always have a problem if I use the snipping tool, then stop using it/exit, and go to use it again real soon after I closed it out, it won't open up again for several seconds later. As if the snippingtool.exe process isn't being terminated when closed out, but it is as far as I can tell. Has always happened in using x64 Windows for me.

The times I've used it I've never had any problems the snip has always been as I'd expect it to be.

MS Snipping Tool
Hi, Have been using that MS "Snipping Tool" that came with W7 on my PC quite often. Really a nice little add-on. However, I cannot get the "Eraser" function to ever work. I looked for an update of it to download, but can't find anyplace. Is there one ?

Snipping Tool
My snipping tool is acting up. :cry: I click the icon (on task bar) and it starts to glow a reddish colour and flashes slowly. Maybe about 1/2 a minute later, the snipping tool window opens and then again, sometimes it doesn't open at all. I was trying to snip an email pic in Outlook. I had to...
