Feature Request: Improvements to the PowerPoint add-in

I have two suggestions to improve the Camtasia PowerPoint Add-in and make it more intuitive and easy to use.

I've recorded a quick video explaining them:


Basically, they are the following:
  1. When you clic "Record" on the add-in, the recording should start in the CURRENT slide, not from the beginning
  2. After I finish recording something, I should have a button to directly delete my recording with one-click. Right now, you have to first say you don't want to record any more, then cancel the file dialog and then say you want to delete
Hope this helps!

Please let me know if you need anything else from my side :)

I'll vote for these.

I agree that having a delete button when you stop recording would be a great options and having Camtasia start recording on the present slide you are on also good.

Since these options are not available there are a couple of things that may be helpful to you.

You can save one click when you stop recording but you will still get the Save As window and the Do You Want To Delete confirmation popup still

In the Camtasia add-in settings, set the recording to Stop.

You won't get the "Continue Recording or Stop Recording popup window.

As for starting on a slide of your choice instead of Camtasia recording from the beginning slide
Before your start the recording click the All Slides View and click on the slide you want to start on.

Then start your recording. Camtasia will record from that slide forward.

Not a complete solution but it's the best we got for now :)
