positioning your capture red area to the application boundaries

The workflow to do screen recordings has been changed in Adobe Captivate 4. The new workflow is more intuitive and user friendly. But do you sometimes feel that you are not able to position your recording area on the application exactly as you want.

When you are done press ALT and H simultaneously again. The buttons will come back as in image below –
