Cropping / Selecting Recording Area of a window capture


New Member
Hi there,
I am trying to record a "specific area of a Window Capture". I know I can use Alt and crop on the OBS screen. However, when I am actually on the screen source the entire screen is surrounded by a yellow line and not just the specific area I selected on OBS. It will record fine on OBS if I then enlarge the selected area on the OBS screen but when working on the source I actually lose control as to which area is being recorded.
Is there a way I can see on the actual source screen the area I am recording?

Another question is can I interact with PPT or other screen, with the exception of the inbuilt browser?
