The "Screen Recording" and "Typescript (Text Session Recording) option should receive a checkbox to enable/disable recording. Currently recording is enabled by configuring a recording or typescript path and name.
Currently it is not possible to setup the recording path and name without automatically starting to record. An additional checkbox like
[ ] Enable Recording
would be nice. So you could then preconfigure the paths, filenames per connection, easily clone or preconfigure them. When recording is needed you just need to enable the checkbox.
