In Arc, how do you screen capture a single screen in PP if you have two screens?
Hello there, Mark Hearn Welcome to the Canvas Community. Thanks for posting your question. Can you please provide some additional detail about your question? I'm assuming that by "PP", you mean PowerPoint? What is end product or goal you are wanting in Arc and/or Canvas? If you could provide some additional info, that would be helpful.
Also, I wanted to let you know that I will share your question with the Canvas Studio Users Group here in the Community in hopes that your question will get some additional exposure. If you are not yet following this group, please use the group link that I have provided. Then, you'll see two buttons at the top right corner of the screen: "Follow" and "Actions". Click on both of these. Under "Actions", click on "Join group". I hope this will be helpful to you as well.
Thanks Mark...looking forward to hearing back from you soon!
Thanks Chris for your reply.
I was able to figure out the answer. In PowerPoint (PP) slide show, there is a "Display Settings" tab in the upper left corner. Here you can "Swap Presenter View and Slide Show" screens. To my knowledge, Arc will only video capture one of the screens, which at the time, prior to this knowledge, was the "Presenter View" (i.e., with notes, etc.) and not the "Slide Show" one. So this is probably more of a PP issue and less of an Arc one.
Thanks for your help,
Hello Mark Hearn...
You should be able to move the selection area around on your screen or onto your other screen without having to mess with the "Display Setting" options in PowerPoint. For example, check out this screen shot:
In Arc, when I click on the "Record" button at the top right corner of the screen, I then click on "Screen Capture" from the two menu choices. Once the screen capture software downloads and/or starts, I see a black and white border which I can drag the corners or the sides to resize the selection area. Also, there is a cross-hairs in the middle where I can drag that around the screen. (I can also put my mouse cursor somewhere on the border, and the mouse changes to a cross-hair icon, too.) I can drag this selection area around the screen...including my second monitor. Are you seeing this on your screen? Hoping this extra bit of information will be helpful to you, Mark.
Hi Mark Hearn
I do not use ARC, but I have used many screen capture/Lecture capture/webinar products over the years, and have used double monitors all along. When you have double monitors, one is always the primary monitor and that is the one that the software will capture. Do a five-second capture with Monitor 1, see what you get. If it is not right, move the slideshow to the other monitor.
This guide should be helpful How do I record a screen capture video in Canvas Studio?
Thanks Kelley for your response. I was able to figure out how to swap screens for video capture (see my response to Chris). It is similar to what you have suggested. A PP resolve and not an Arc one.
Appreciate the help!
