Adjusting audio level of multiple tracks

    In Camtasia 8, you could select multiple clips and hit the Volume Up or Volume Down button to adjust them all at once. The green line moved, so you could see relatively how much the volume level of a track was changed from the starting point.
    In Camtasia 9, when you adjust the gain, the size of the audio wave changes, but the green line does not move. So there is no way to know by looking at a several tracks if the level was changed from the starting place of the clip. Changing the green line does not change the Gain level. In fact there is a wider range of adjustment by using both the Gain level and the volume line separately.
    If there a way in Camtasia 9 to adjust the volume of multiple tracks at once as you could with Camtasia 8?
    How can you know if a track has been changed from its original level and by how much?

excellent question

generally, they both seem to accomplish the same thing, but differently

audio on different tracks also react differently to the gain slider

green line on audio in a trec on track 1 never moves with gain slider movement, yet the volume changes

a voice narration m4a in a higher track will show green line changes when the gain slider is moved

wav files green  line on higher tracks do not respond to slider movements

I find the various behaviors confusing

it would help if TechSmith could shed some light here

Agree with your comments about audio behavior confusion here. Persists for Camtasia 2018 as well. Sadly we will be waiting. The real potential for Camtasia is better audio quality not more resolution.
