Camtasia 9 How to Record Keystrokes Automatically and Generate Keystroke Callouts ✅ #camtasia


Hi, this is Naomi with the Top Shelf VA TV,
your place for creativity and inspiration for business and life. Today is part two for capturing keystroke
data automatically as callouts in Camtasia 9, using the Camtasia 9 recorder, and in the
Camtasia 9 workspace. Part one was demonstrating how to use the
Camtasia 9 Keystroke Annotation Callout to manually show keystrokes within a video. If you haven’t watched it yet, I’ll have
a link to that Camtasia 9 tutorial in the description below and at the end of this tutorial. A quick reminder, please subscribe to the
channel, and make sure to turn on notifications, so you know right away when a new video is
loaded. Today, we’re going automated! The first thing we need to do is make sure
our Camtasia 9 recorder is set to capture the keyboard input. Click on Record. Then when the Camtasia 9 recorder opens, click
on Tools and Options. Under the General Tab, make sure Capture Keyboard
Input is checked. Then click on Okay. Now record your screencast and Camtasia will
also record all your keyboard shortcuts as you record. For this demonstration, I have already done
a little Photoshop recording. Let me get rid of this system audio as I don’t
need it. Go up to the top menu and click on Modify
and then Generate Keystroke Callouts. If you don’t want a black background on
your keystrokes, uncheck the Display keystrokes on background box. Click on the drop down arrow to select the
callout style you would like. You have Traditional Keystrokes and if you
look in the main box area on the right, you will see the style change. Grey Keystrokes, Clear Keystrokes, and White
Outline Keystrokes. I like the Grey Keystrokes, so let’s select
that. Now every single solitary keystroke shortcut
may not appear, so you can click on Show All, and then make sure to check each blank box,
so it will appear. After everything is set as you want it, click
on Generate. You will see Camtasia 9 enters the Keystroke
Callout in each location you had a keystroke shortcut. You can go through each of the keystroke callouts
and delete any you don’t want. Simply select it and hit your delete key. We can see the callouts are all smack dab
in the center of the canvas. You probably don’t want them there. If you want to move them, highlight all the
keystroke callouts on the track, make sure your play head is over one of the keystroke
callouts, and you can move all of them at once to the location you want. Then if you wish, you can do minor adjustments
if you want them to start at a specific point by selecting the first one on the track, moving
it slightly on the canvas to where you want it to start. Then select each callout and move it on the
canvas, so the left side matches up with the one prior to it. You will be able to tell it is lined up by
the yellow line. There you have it, how to automatically record
and capture all keystroke shortcuts while doing a Camtasia 9 screencast recording, then
add those keystrokes to the timeline. If you have a question, and would like me
