Manual Recordings

If you’ve stepped through all of the activities in this module, you’ve now used every recording option in Captivate except two—Manual mode and Video mode (Video Mode is covered in Adobe Captivate 8: Beyond the Essentials). In most instances, recording screen actions using Captivate’s Automatic Recording type gets the job done for you. However, you will come across some applications where attempting to record automatically does not work (some applications won’t get along with Captivate and prove difficult to record). This is a perfect opportunity to use Captivate’s Manual recording type.
