Camtasia 9 was just released. Some of available features require the use of a hot key.You can download the shortcuts as a PDF. However, referencing them through a PDF requires a number of steps.

Some features that had selectable buttons in Camtasia 8.Can only be triggered through a hot key in Camtasia 9.

Silence audio is only accessible using "Shift + S" now.
 This features use should not be a mystery that you need to solve.

I prefer the button myself but that's another issue. 

If you added an easy access menu to the editor that lists all of the shortcuts. It could save some people a lot of time.

Same thing for SnagIt.

Hi Joe.

We have a menu item that lists the hotkeys (Help > Keyboard Shortcuts). Are you asking for something that shows them in the editor interface? Something else entirely?

Whoops. I should note that I'm referencing Camtasia there. Snagit does not have the same menu item.

Ok, thanks for clarifying. We do have a similar Snagit help article that lists the hotkeys, it's just listed in that menu: https://support.techsmith.com/hc/en-u...

I also observed that the Silence Audio hotkey is not listed in the Camtasia article, so I'll pass that info on to be updated. Thanks for the suggestions, Joe.

You can also right-click on your selection of audio and select Silence Audio from the context menu

Please verify that C9 doesn't allow selecting the volume level (green in CS8) and dragging the level down to 0%.  (I often only went to 2-6% so the segment wasn't totally quiet which was distracting if it lasted longer than 3 frames.)

I cannot replicate the problem.I was able to drag down to 0% selecting only 3 frames of footage and larger selections as well.

Hi and thanks for submitting your idea/feature request!

As outlined in our New Community Processes post, feature requests are open to voting up through the 1st of the month, where we will then tally the votes and present the findings to our product teams. To ensure we have the most accurate data, on the 1st of the month we will be locking the threads that were listed in the Feature Request Round-up that was posted on the 15th. Once we have reviewed the submitted feature requests, our product team(s) may respond to the request, and if that is the case then that thread will then be unlocked for further discussion.

In the event that your idea is not selected for a response feel free to resubmit the idea and share it with your colleagues to garner as much exposure as possible!

Thank you again for your idea and we look forward to hearing more from you!
