So I did a little screen recording and chose that the recording shows taps on the screen. The thing is, now I see an annoying little dot every time I touch the screen, even though I’m not recording anymore.
I tried turning the phone off and on already but it didn’t help.
Yeah. I noticed accidentally that the screen recording has come available.
I didn´t use the camera app for recording either. What I ment I used the screen recording app and then launched the camera app to show via screen recording how there are a few bugs in the camera app. Such as
the camera app doesn´t open (or opens only once in a while) when double clicking the power button (it seems that the camera starts to open, but after a while there is just a black screen with a lock symbol and a date on top of the screen)
If you are using the pro mode in the camera app and shoot raw format, and then try to look at the photo you just took (not via the photos app but the quick look at the camera), it seems to think that the raw-file is a video and gives a message that the video can´t be shown.
Maybe the problem has something to do with fact that I used the screen recording and the camera at the same time. I used the screen recording once before and if I remember correctly, I had show taps on then but when I finished the recording, the taps were disappeared as they were supposed to.
The camera app seems to be a source of a lot of bugs at the moment, at least in my FP3+.
@Teeko this is a setting in the developer options. Go to sertings > about the phone and tap on the build number around 5-10 times to activate them. Then go back, go to developer options and untick “show fingertips”.
The [Show taps] in the Developer options definitely does enable and disable that, the question would then be how did the OP get it to show permanently if they hadn’t already enabled Developer options ??
Still if it is enabled then disabling may be the course to take or maybe enabling and disabling.
Maybe there was a query if to keep the Show taps permanently when using another app.
Thanks @Stanzi and @amoun for your help. Going to developer options and ticking of show taps helped. As amoun pointed out, the question is how/why show taps stayed on after screen recording stopped.
My phone seems to have a few things that should work but don´t. While looking for the solution to this problem, I noticed that there is an option to swipe down from the fingerprint scanner at the back of the phone to see the notifications. I put that on, but it doesn´t work. I am not sure should I have the fingerprint scanner as the unlock mechanism activated to make it work though. I don´t use the scanner but an unlocking code instead.
