  1. Lenovo Yoga 730-15 Win 10
    Downloaded and installed and runs but the “Windows Scrolling” starts where I click the screen but then only goes to the bottom of the screen… not the bottom of the page like in your example. I even tried rebooted my machine.

    Any ideas?

  2. In the picture at point 5 you showed ”Screen Capture”, where should open a new menu for ”Scrolling Window” it does not hapening. When I try to use shortcut for scrolling screnshot, it appears on top left corner the Auto Scrool option, but when I click on it, it jumps few centimeters and stopes by self, doesnt allowing taking longer screenshot. I talk about your app, downloaded from that purple ”link” at the point 1.
