Much like happens in the tutorial (link below), I am trying to add arrows and highlights to a video as I speak, but I cannot figure out how to record the edits being made.  Any help would be appreciated!  Here is the link:  https://www.techsmith.com/tutorial-snagit-how-to-edit-a-screenshot.html#

Likely TechSmith used their Camtasia product to record that.

You might want to download and install the trial and give it a try!

Thanks much Rick! Appreciate your reply. The videos were Snag It tutorials (Dottotech was one of the videos I watched) and they were using the SnagIt product only (I do have Camtasia as well). The answer below from Dubie ( and an email from Ben  from Customer Support that said the same)) solved my issue! Once I unchecked "Hide Snagit), I was able to do what I needed.  Thanks again- really appreciate that you took the time to reply! Cheers!

Snagit can video record The Snagit editor but using Camtasia would be better.

First in Snagit you have to make sure in the Capture Preference that you Uncheck hiding Snagit.



Then with the Snagit editor open so you can record it, start a Snagit video recording.

I did the recording with mic audio but that's not going to come through in a gif image. (⊙_⊙;)

I have used this before with no problems.  Open SnagIt editor on the screen then open SnagIt recorder, the editor screen will then minimize. Hit the capture button then select the entire screen where the editor was opened in (or if you know what area on the screen that you want to record, just select that area to record), then hit the capture button. the recording will start and then maximize the editor window and start making your recording. once you are finished with the items you want to record. stop the recording.  I have multiple screens so this makes it easier to leave the recording timer open in another monitor but if you only have one monitor, you can minimize that also during your recording. then you can go back and edit the recording for items you do not want
