Hi! 

I don't understand the new update to the screen recorder. Could someone please explain these 3?

Screenshot_20200619-163423_Galaxy Store.jpg

 

 

 

1. Add Play, Stop and Pointer buttons to the screen recording toolbar.

 

 

What is the meaning of the Pointer button, what is it?

 

 

 

2. Add the name of the longest recorded application to the

recorded file name.

 

I don't understand this at all.

 

 

 

3. Adjust the size of the screenshot for Screen write

How does this work?

Also what does this hashtag (#) mean? I don't have it in mine. 20200622_195119.jpg

 

Thanks!

Hi @Adi0 ,

 

Figured I'd answer this one here rather than in PM. :winking-face:

 

1. Pointer button

 

It's the 'pencil' icon in the Screen record toolbar, and allows you to write/point out things on a screen recording/screen shot:

2. "Add the name of the longest recorded application to the recorded file name."

 

For example: if you open the Home Screen, stay on it for 10 seconds, go to Gallery, and record something in the Gallery for 30 seconds, then the file name will be something that has "Gallery" in the name - since this app was recorded for the longest time.

 

3. "Adjust the size of the screenshot for Screen write"

 

If you take a screenshot, you can both adjust the size of the window (by touching the corners and dragging the corners) and write (using the 'pencil' icon - which you can deselect by clicking on the 'eraser' icon to the directly to the right of it, apparently).

4. I don't have the hashtag icon either - so it may be the result of a regional variant or another app/apk. For instance, I found this whilst having a look around for that feature: https://webcazine.com/23632/qa-how-to-get-the-samsungs-screen-recording-function-without-good-lock-o... .Maybe someone out there who has it can let us know more about what it does!

Can you please go to Settings-advanced Features-Motions and Gestures-Palm swipe to capture.

 

I think you should have that option. But it should be rather easy by pressing wolume down and power button with your thumb if it's on the same side.

Impossible to take any screenshots on this s20fe mobile.i installed a screenshot app but that dies not work either. Using the volume down and power button together dies nothing other than lowering the volume and turning off the phone. While I have been to advanced settings and followed the instructions above, no screenshots appear. Its just a stupid way to take a screenshot. Unless you have double jointed hip bones. Like many things on this high priced and almost featureless phone.
