Advanced Screen Capturing Features and Batch Updates

MadCap Capture offers advanced screen capturing features designed to save you time and effort; batch processing makes it easy to update a large number of images quickly across projects.

Capture profiles: A profile is a collection of settings that are applied to the image. You can also apply profiles to a single image or multiple images through the use of a batch job.

With profiles, you can:

  • Select captured image file location
  • Apply a specific border
  • Add shapes
  • Set the DPI
  • Automatically resize

Recapture images: Easily recapture an image while maintaining all existing callouts and objects added to it.

Image cropping: Cropped images can be re-cropped, as the entire image is saved.

Time delay: Capture images immediately or on a timed delay.

Batch processing: Apply image profiles to folders/subfolders; update and replace images.

Capture regions consecutively: Capture multiple images without having to select the capture option each time.

Single-sourcing and Content Reuse with MadCap Flare

Maximize content reuse by applying the same rules used for text to images. By adding variables to callouts and images for example, there's no need to recapture or reinsert images into your documentation when text or version changes are required.

Project Conditions and Variable Links: You can link an image to a MadCap Flare project. This allows you to automatically have access to any variables or condition tags found in that Flare project.
