Re: Text input

In my case it does not help too much: I can achieve what I am looking for but it's cumbersome and time consuming. Hi Kai, While recording a screencast you can press the PrtScreen key to capture additional slides. If you do that after every character it would run very slow, but maybe after each word...

Re: Missing feature: Slide number in Preview

Good idea. The obvious place is in the top caption bar of the preview window.

Re: Text input

Hi Kai, HX has a great Typewriter animation on a Text object. The characters are typed one after the other as you want. You need to leave the original text field blank and insert the animated text object over it. Use a Magnify Effect Lens to zoom in on the field to match the Text object size. Or cha...

Re: Roadmap for HelpXplain

I would like to have a menu in one of my exes that has items such as 'How do I do x ?', which when clicked runs an Xplain. Hi Sue, Assuming you are creating Windows exes, you could embed the Xplain directly in your exe. It means including the Xplain files in your installer, and putting them somewhe...

Re: Adding a screencast to existing Xplain?

how to append/insert one Xplain into another? Answering my own question, it is possible to Select All and copy the slides from one instance of HX, and paste into another instance of HX, via the Slides Overview main windows. Then while they are still selected, you can right-click and Move Up , or ot...

Re: Copying and pasting a slide

Hi Kai, To copy and paste an entire slide, it is necessary to use the Slides Overview (top of the slides list), and on the main window only. Copying and pasting entire slides in the Slides or Objects lists appears not to work. On the main Slides Overview window, you can select a slide, and then righ...

Re: Adding a screencast to existing Xplain?

I agree that the self-referential samples and tutorials are confusing to follow. It is not always clear whether you are being shown how to do something, or the end result of doing it. Knowing now a bit more about HX it is possible to untangle the two, but in the early days of Goalfish it was often a...

Re: Adding a screencast to existing Xplain?

Select the slide where you want to start or continue a screencast, then select Screencast in the Picture tool dropdown in the Home tab. :) Thanks Tim, I missed that. But that seems to be in the wrong place -- the Picture functions are surely intended to apply to the current slide? It would be more ...

Adding a screencast to existing Xplain?

How to add/insert a screencast into an existing Xplain? To create a screencast it appears to be necessary to start a new Xplain? Shouldn't there be a Start Screencast option under Home > New Slide ? I can create a screencast in a separate instance of HX, but how to append/insert one Xplain in anothe...

Screencast spotlight size?

Is there a way to specify the spotlight size when spotlights are added automatically to a screencast?

They can be edited afterwards for multiple slides in Customize Theme, for opacity, outline, etc., but not for size?

Changing the size of each one separately is a bit tedious.

cheers,

Martin.

Selecting spotlights

To select a spotlight, it is necessary to click anywhere on the slide -- except on the spotlight. Likewise, if you want to select the background capture image, it is necessary to click on the spotlight, not anywhere else on the slide. This may be logical if you think of the spotlight as a mask with ...

Re: Spotlight shape

If 2 or more spotlights are added to a slide, each one greys over the other(s). The same thing happens if the image has a highlight lens. It greys over the spotlight. I suspect there is no easy answer to this, because my screen recorder has exactly the same limitation. But worth asking?... cheers, M...
