Toggling between screen capture and webcam in fill-screen

I see there was some discussion of something like this about 6 years ago.  Maybe that was different, or maybe it's time to bring it up again.  Or maybe it's a feature that I just haven't been able to find.

In creating lectures for my (now) online classes and trying to use Snagit, I need to toggle between the webcam and the screen (for PowerPoint, Chrome, Word, whatever).  If I capture only part of the screen in the video, leaving an inch or so at the bottom, then I get a tool bar with an icon to do that.  But if I want to capture the full screen, that bar doesn't appear, and I have no way (that I've found) to toggle back and forth.  I don't really see how you could record a lecture without this feature unless, as some people suggested six years ago, you record the lecture and then splice in the video, which seems like way more work than I'm willing to do.  (I'll use Panopto instead.)

If there isn't already a hotkey or shortcut of some kind that will work for this toggle, I really think there ought to be.

Hi,

Good news, there is a hotkey for that! If you hover over the button you can see what it is (control, shift, W)

Thanks a lot Luke.  I'm brand new to Snagi-it or maybe I would have seen that.  I will pass on this information to our technology person who is a huge fan of techsmith but didn't have an answer for me. Is there a list of all the hotkeys?

We don't keep a running list of hotkeys, but most of the controls in the capture workflow have hover tooltips with the hotkeys. in the Editor all of the hotkeys are shown in the main menus.
