[Bug 1947607] Re: Docs state to use ctrl-alt-shift-R to record screen recording, which will NEVER work correctly
Thanks for your report.
It's not clear to me how that step-by-step page encourages users to
"mis-use" the feature.
Anyway, the page in question is from GNOME Help, and if you want to
discuss its wording, I would recommend you to submit an upstream issue:
If you do, please post the URL to the upstream issue here for tracking

Docs state to use ctrl-alt-shift-R to record screen recording, which
will NEVER work correctly
Status in gnome-user-docs package in Ubuntu:
Ubuntu docs: https://help.ubuntu.com/stable/ubuntu-help/screen-shot-
record.html are incorrectly sayig to mis-use this Gnome feature as a
user-focussed 'Make a Screencast'
According to the Gnome developers who implement/maintain this feature,
it's only to be used for recording 30-second snippets and reporting
bugs in Gnome.
By design there is no warning that a screen-recording has been
terminated at the 30 seconds mark, and it should (apparently) never be
used for general screen-recordings. Ubuntu is encouraging people to
mis-use this feature and thereby lose data (many bug reports against
Gnome going back 5+ years of people requesting it be changed, closed
as WONTFIX / by-design).
It's non-trivial to make the feature work as described in the ubuntu
docs, and there's no mention that it's hardcoded to 30 seconds max.
