Easy to fix: Go to Tools, Program Preferences. Try different combinations of Global Capture hotkey until the Apply button is no longer grayed out (which means you can select it). I used CTRL+P.
My hotkey used to be CTRL+Prt Sc but evidently a program installation or update has hijacked that combination and SnagIt can no longer use it.
