The Panning in Manual mode, gives you the freedom/control to move your recording window to the direction/area of screen you want to record, The window dimension would be static and it would not expand if you move your mouse.
If you use arrow keys from you keyboard, you can move the recording area/frame to left/right direction based upon what section of screen you wish to capture.
O.k. I'm still doing something wrong.
I understand that panning is supposed to let me move the recording window. I was assuming that if I set it to manual panning when recording that I could move the recording window by using the mouse and it would pan. However, when I do this it doesn't pan. Instead I get a FMR of a line (the edge of the recording window) moving across the screen and then the next slide is centered on the new area defined by the recording window, there is no actual panning taking place. I tried turning manual pan on using F3 but that didn't change anything. Using the arrow keys does nothing, the recording area does not move.
Any other suggestions?
Going by definition from help --
- Automatic Panning
- The recording window automatically moves along with the pointer whenever you move the mouse during recording.
- Manual Panning
- You must manually move the recording window to the area where the next event takes place. In all other respects, It is like the automatic panning option.
- Which means you would have to click and drag the Recording Pane.
- So Finally, I would suggest you going by your needs, use Automatic panning and it should solve your problem, the recording pane would following your mouse curser and would move automatically.
