Snipping Tool Like In Windows, NOT Whole Screen Cap?

Asked: Feb 05 2019 | 11:57 am EST 2941 Views 2 Answers

I sorely miss not having a snipping tool to capture and/or copy a PORTION OF THE SCREEN, like Windows has had forever. All my searching simply yields results for the instructions for a whole Screen Cap.

Thanks. -Alan

I love the snipping tool on my Window's PC at work, and I use it several times a week. On my both my iPhone and my iPad, I take a screenshot and then edit it by cropping what I want to keep. It's one more step, but it does work. If someone does know a snipping tool option for iOS, I'll be thrilled!

Hi Annie_8+,

Thanks so much for the quick reply. I’m not too much into that 2 step process. Seems pretty antiquated in this day and age. After living with the Windows Snipping Tool for ages, I, like you, would be thrilled if someone knows of a good Snipping Tool.
