Recorder: Record just clicks

Post by Flo » Thu Dec 10, 2015 10:20 am

Hi all,
the search and google won't help at this point.

I'm using the Recorder to record just "Click" for Mouse actions on Websites.

But often the recorder records different mouse clicks, like "Down" and "Up"(the single click actions).

Is there any possibility to record only "Click" actions, any option or so?

I guess your problem is caused by too short Mouse recording setting? In other words, the actual time between mouse down and mouse up event is longer than is the defined Mouse event value.

Go to Settings >> Recorder defaults and increase the Mouse/Pointer-related value. Default is 500ms. If you still see Mouse Down/Up actions to be recorded with this value, then you need to increase this value.
Do you perform recording on a virtual machine? This may be the cause of delayed events and so you may need to significantly increase the recorder default values.
