Some elements, such as hovers, drop-downs, tooltips, and more require a different capturing technique to guarantee you capture the screen the way you want. To help you with that, we’ve added the ability to set a timed capture. Until now, you needed to go through several motions or click on an element in a specific way. But now, you can simply set a timer with a few time ranges to guarantee that you’ll catch the elements you’re looking to showcase.
- To start using Timed Capture, open the Capture Panel from the extension
- Click on the clock icon beside the camera, which will turn purple once activated
- If you don't see a clock icon; click on the settings icon and disable Continuous Capture, then you should be able to turn on Timed Capture from the settings, or the clock icon.
- You can also adjust the countdown in the settings; choose from 3, 5 or 10 seconds.
- Once you click the camera icon, or use the keyboard shortcut to capture, you'll see the countdown appear and then your screen will be captured.
