Add box/circle/oval drawing on Snip & Sketch
After a screen capture, often I need to highlight a capture part.
I'd like to draw a colored boxes/circles/ovals
Now I have to use paint.
I just gave up my SnagIT license and the transition is frustrating. This is a must have for IT
Adding the ability to add text would be nice as well. I often switch to my Mac for doing such annotations, but do so begrudgingly, until I get there. The preview app on Mac allows shapes, arrows and text boxes. It's brilliantly simple, but I would much rather stay in Windows.

A possible workaround for some cases:
Make the highlighter as fat as you want your mark to be tall.
Turn on the ruler and line it up where you want your highlight.
Make your highlight. It stays on the ruler.
Agree, cannot believe that it is not available from the get go.
Arrow and text addition needed as well

I was shocked to find you can't draw a box with Snip & Sketch. It's something I do every day. Sending an annotated screenshot with hand-drawn circle looks really unprofessional. Please add the functionality to draw boxes and circles.
This absolutely should be implemented. The ability to highlight with rectangles and circles is key to making this application a proper snipping tool. As others have said, I have to use another application to do this at the moment.
This would be a great feature! I typically use the Screen Snip tool combined with the Snip & Sketch to create documentation for teachers. The circle I create look silly and unprofessional, leading me to have to use another program to create the circles/arrows/boxes etc.
Please, for those of us that do not have touch screens :(
It would be helpful if the Snip & Sketch has a functions to draw a box/circle/oval/ruler instead of doing it in Paint.
Need to highlight (wireframe box/oval) or hide (filled box/oval) parts.
Also text box tool would be helpful.
Either call paint from the tool or integrate these basic functions.
yes.... it really time wasted to use 2 tools for draw a box for highlighted.

I've found that underlining in thick red using the ruler is a reasonable substitute for highlighting options and links in the UI, but would be better to get a box/oval/arrow tool.
Also the ability to blur or pixelate areas of the screen to anonymise confidential information would be good.

Arrows. Please add Arrows also.
Please! I am also stuck using paint until this is implemented
