I signed up for a free trial, but did not get an activation key in the mail. I'm getting the mail about training and tutorials, but I can't activate the free trial. I checked my Spam folder, nothing there - and other TechSmith mail gets through. My email is sith dot load at gmail if you could resend a key? Thank you!

Hello,

Good news, I think. You don't need a key to use the fully-functional 30-day trial. There should be a button on the first startup dialog that says "continue trial" or something like that.

You should only need a key if you buy Camtasia. Then you will get an email with the software key that will remove the 30-day trial restriction.

Sorry I don't have the trial version handy or I'd grab a screenshot right away...

Let us know if there's anything we can do to help you get rolling with Camtasia!

Here is a screenshot: http://www.screencast.com/t/0GcBY6Wsb

Mike was correct, the button you need to click on is called "Continue Trial"

I have just downloaded the lastest version of Camtasia 2 for mac

It doesn't show any button between Quit and Activate, there is no "continue trial" button as you showed in screenshot.

Please help to check if anything wrong with the new version?

My free trial of Camtasia won't allow me to edit clips like your tutorials show- am i not in the correct view? Or are there limitations?

The trial is unlimited and has full functionality. Can you do a screen capture or give us a better description of what you're trying to do?

Thanks.

See how there are no tools or anything?

What tools are you looking for? It looks fine to me. All of the options available are in the menu items (i.e. Annotations, Video FX, etc.). Once you apply those, you can click on the little gear icon on the far right to access the properties of each.

Yeah! I have the same problem. There are only Quit and Activate. I just downloaded Camtasia Studio 2 for Mac for the first time! Any ideas?

Hello Folks,

  I just downloaded trial and like others.  The only button is Quit and Activate but never received activation code.  What should I do?

Thanks
