PowerPoint add-in enhancement requests

  • Updated 2 years ago
The PowerPoijnt add-in is a fantastic idea but I have at least two enhancement requests for it:
  1. I'd like to see an option to start the recording not always from the beginning of the slide deck but from the current slide
  2. I'd like ti have the ability to add markers as well.
Kind regards,

have you tried recording your PPT by using Recorder in normal mode?

you could start from wherever, and you can add markers on the fly

Hello,

what do you mean for "normal mode" ?
Do you intend without using the plug-in at all and using the screen recorder?

yes

that is the way I've always screencasted my PPT stuff; I have never bothered using the PPT add-in; because Recorder can be started in paused mode, then un-paused/paused again, it's easy to rip through the slides, playing them manually, narrating as I go along

I don't do PPT any more, but, as I recall, it was possible to record the slides in either edit mode, or in full screen mode, depending on how large I needed the video dimensions

might be worth trying

Hi Marco,

If you have a moment, and don't mind sharing, I'd love to hear what you're trying to capture from PowerPoint (i.e. are they static slides, slides with lots of animations and transitions, etc). Hearing more about how people are hoping to use features gives us a better insight into what people are doing, so that we can continue to improve Camtasia!

Thanks,

Kelly
