I love Robo Demo, but there is a feature that creates a LOT
of work for me. I set up a recording and ALL I want to do is record
when I hit the Prnt Screen key (this is as it should be)
But then if I do anything else on my PC (I have to do this)
every time I hit the carriage return key Robo Demo also takes a
screen shot. This then causes me to have recording that I have no
use for and I then have to spend hours trimming out the screen
shots I don't need. As I record live Stock Market action within my
software I really do have hours of unwanted work.
Can I make it so that Robo Demo only does as it should do, IE
capture on pressing the Prnt Screen key>
RoboDemo thinks that as long as it is in recording mode, all
actions are to be interpreted by it as applying to it. You need to
go into the Recording Options and de-select all the "auto-record"
options, so that the PRTSCR key is the only keyboard action that
will be obeyed. Obviously, the de-selections must include the
option to "Record typing" - or something to that effect (I haven't
had RoboDemo on this machine for a number of years, so can't be
more specific - and by the way, you should at least try Captivate,
because you'll love the that (upgraded) application compared to
RoboDemo - just a small "sales talk".
In addition to the above, there are several things I'd
Recording Rule #1, don't interrupt a recording session by
doing other non-related tasks.
Recording Rule #2, if you wish to break rule #1, press the
keyboard "PAUSE" key to suspend the RoboDemo recording operation.
