annotation window blank - windows 7 64bit

edited August 2011 in Support
Sorry if this has already been addressed in this forum .
I've just started using Camstudio v2.6 and find that the screen annotation window is blank bothe the shapes and layout . Do I need to download shapes libraries ?


  • tetatate2,

    Georg found out that it had to do with the anti-aliasing setting:

    "right click on the image,
    select anti Alias
    choose No Anti Alias
    and voila the text appears

    (flat text is preset to the above option)"

    Search for the word "annotations" here to see if there are other posts. Let me know if the above does or does not work for you.

  • Load the default shape library, called " default.shapes ", from the CamStudio program directory, usually in C:\Program Files\CamStudio 2.6b\default.shapes.

    You load it into CamStudio by going Tools > Screen Annotations > Library > Open Shape Library, and navigating to the default.shapes file.

    I had a blank Screen Annotations window on both Windows XP and Windows 7 Starter

  • Tekj,

    Ah, yes! I remember hearing about that fix now - thanks for bringing that back up!
