Alison,
Great video.
Do you know if there is a "on screen, corner of screen" 3-5 second snapshot of the capture similar to Apple's version. i.e. an easy way to drag and drop into messages, email etc?
Thanks.
Jess

Allison Sheridan

Thanks, Jess. I don’t think there is a feature like that.

Wow! I've been using Capto via Setapp for quite a while. It was a means to capture an area, or maybe a window, and that's was about it. This has opened up all kinds of possibilities that will be quite useful to me.

Thanks, Allison and SCO.

Thanks, Tony - I felt the same way! I just kept trying more and more options and couldn't believe how capable it is. This is actually one of the reasons I like to teach (best way to learn).
