    Shortcut for *starting* recording ?

    Günter Schenk Level 4
      Hi folks,

      this is probably a dumb Captivate 2 question, but it seems I just only change the *start* Recording keys for "full motion recording" and not the regular recording -- or is this all the same ?

          Hi Günter

          There really is no generic "Start Recording" key, as you must launch it from the application itself. However, while you are in the process of recording, I believe you may click the Pause/Break key to pause as well as resume a recording in progress.

          The Full Motion Recording keys start and stop Full motion recording. This is separate from normal recording. Generally used for brief bits such as dragging a window from here to there. Dragging the thumb of a scroll bar. Or possibly dragging to select text.

          Cheers... Rick

            Hi Rick,

            thanks, this confirms my biggest worries ;-)

            really wonder why this has been omitted, because in the "1st slide" workflow it "hurts" having to click the mouse on the start button and then moving it to the top of your screen for e.g. capturing an application menu -- would be more comfortable to first positioning the mouse near the menu and start recording with Enter or so. Pausing/resuming works fine -- guess I´ll submit a wish just for the non-intuitive start

            Thanks :-)
