Hotkeys

From Screenbits Help & User Manual

Hotkeys allow you to control recording process using keyboard shortcuts when Screenbits is minimized or not in foreground. This helps you use Screenbits without having its user interface included in the recorded video.

Default hotkeys for recording actions are defined in the following table:

Action Default Shortcut Description
Record/Stop F10 Starts recording or stops it if it's already started.
Pause/Resume Shift+F10 Paused recording or resumes it if it's already paused.
Selector (none) Opens the all-in-one selector to select a region on the screen.

Custom hotkeys

In order to choose a different hotkey for an action:

  1. Select Settings from Record menu to open Settings dialog.
  2. Click Hotkeys from the side bar to open Hotkeys settings.
  3. Click on one of of the boxes to enter a shortcut.
  4. Hold the desired keys so the combination appear in the box.

Note: Not all the key combinations are valid for a hotkey. You need to enter a valid key combination for each action to work. Note 2: Another application might have already registered a hotkey which makes it not usable for Screenbits.
