Customize default format of Hint Caption

Apr 23, 2014

When I do recording, I want to change the default background, border and text (format) of Hint Caption. How do I do this? Without having to edit one by one afterward?

The article talks about colors and fonts, but I still can't find a way to change the default text itself.  In other words, whenever we record a simulation, we want it to invoke our own versions of the text boxes themselves. 

Those default objects (Hint, Try Again) must be stored somewhere, so I have a hard time believing it's impossible to swap them out.  Has anyone else done this?  I'm fine with editing XML if I knew where to look.

Hi Max, 

Modifying the default caption labels for screen recordings isn't currently supported. Caption labels refer to the action words associated with events in your screen recordings, such as "Click and drag..."

Here are two options for editing caption labels, and please note the second option for the XML file is not supported.
