Automatically mark each slide while recording a Powerpoint/Keynote Presentation

A quote from a Camtasia 2020 help page: "Automatically mark each slide while recording a Powerpoint/Keynote Presentation."

I have not been able to access this feature on Camtasia 3 or Camtasia 2020. The page with the quote does not otherwise mention automatically adding marks. I've extensively searched the help center and found no other information about this feature.

How do you automatically add marks with a Powerpoint/Keynote presentation?

At first, I thought that the feature might only apply to the Windows version, though nothing in the help information states that. But then, Keynote is also mentioned, so it must apply to Mac as well since I don't think Keynote exists for Windows.

Thanks for the suggested link. However, the link is to a post that references the Windows version and the Camtasia plugin for Windows. I assume the auto marking feature is available for Mac in some fashion since the help page specifically references Keynote. I appreciate the suggestion though.

OK. I don't know. Seems to have fixed itself, or I fixed myself, at least for Powerpoint in Cam3 and Cam2020. Powerpoint slide changes do now produce marks in Camtasia 3 and Camtasia 2020.

But still no auto marks in Camtasia 2020 when using Keynote.

What version of Keynote are you running?  The slide title capture relies on AppleScript automation and easily breaks if Apple changes anything. :(

I am glad to hear that PowerPoint is working for you.   One confusing thing about that is that the slide title capture only works when you are in slide show mode.
