To start making amazing interactive demos, you will need to first install the Walnut extension.
Of note: Walnut is supported on the current Chrome version, as well as the two prior versions. Be sure to always have the most updated Chrome version. See here how to update and check your current Chrome version. This limitation only exists for the Walnut extension and is not the case for the editor or site.
Once you have the extension added, you will be able to capture your screens. When you enter the Walnut platform, you will then be able to make edits to your captured templates.
Capturing with the Extension
After adding the Walnut extension to your browser, enter the system or website that you would like to begin capturing. Then open the Walnut extension from the browser's extension menu.
Pro Tip: Pin the extension so that it is always visible!
You will see the extension app open up in the top right corner. Select Create new template, give it a name and then press start capturing.
When the Walnut Extension is open and ready to capture, a browser debugger notification will always appear at the top of the page, no matter which capture mode is in use. This built-in browser capability ensures users can capture their demos with the highest screen quality. For optimal performance, please refrain from dismissing the debugger.
With the extension open on your screen, you are ready to start capturing!
The default capturing method will be set to single capture; however, you can change the settings to capture using other methods.
Hit the purple camera icon to capture your screen. Continue to capture the rest of the screens needed for your demo.
With all of your screens captured, you can enter the platform and begin making your great edits!

Important to Note 📝
- The Walnut extension will only capture published html sites. You will not be able to capture a personal file via URL or a PDF
- Capturing with the extension while other extensions are in use (ie: as Grammarly, LastPass, QuillBot, etc.) may alter the captured page. We recommend disabling other external extensions while capturing your screens.
- Walnut is not supported on Microsoft Edge currently. To use the Walnut extension on Firefox or Safari please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
