"Save As" from Recording Preview in Camtasia 09-win Seems Broken

  • Updated 2 years ago
Testing out Camtasia 09 today. My typical workflow is to preview a recording, and, if I like it, to "save as" using my own naming conventions. After setting 09 to preview like 08 (grrr on that switch y'all!), I select the down arrow under Save and Edit to be able to "Save As". However, selecting this automatically saves the clip to the default folder with the default naming convention. So the "save as" dialogue never opens. It seems like a bug.

Hi Mike,

We may need to change the file options as well.  See this screenshot.

Choose 'Ask for file name' and see if that gives you the behavior you're looking for.

Ahhh!  Thanks Mike. I missed the "ask for file name" option!  Selecting that does reinstate the Camtasia 08 style workflow. And it does pop the "save as" window when you click the "save as" drop down in preview mode.

Thanks for the quick response!

Mike
