Recording in an inactive window

I want to record something playing in a browser (an online meeting) while using another application (e.g., MS Word, Outlook, look at a website in another browser session, etc.).  I selected the "Lock to application" option on the Capture menu, but the recording was still of each additional application I used.  Can this be done? What am I doing wrong?  Thanks, Craig

Hi there

As you have seen, the lock to application feature is only used to determine the placement of the recorder. 

About the only way I can think of to possibly achieve what you are hoping for would be to use a second monitor, then place what you want to record on that monitor and record it while you are working on the first monitor.

Others may have better ideas to offer.

Cheers... Rick :)
