● Real-time Annotation
Bother Windows and Mac users can do real-time drawing at any time during your recording process by highlighting, adding text/arrow/shape/line etc. Mac version also offers the Whiteboard tool for note or so. This is quite useful for captures like video tutorial, course or similar. But one thing you must know is that if you hide floating toolbar’s panel when recording (which is adjustable under Settings -> Floating toolbar), you won’t have the chance to enjoy this tool.
