Any faster way to extend clips?

Hey guys! So I just picked up Camtasia 9 (after having bought 8 just a couple of weeks ago). Love the new changes, including voiceover. One thing I was hoping would change, though, is the "extend frame" behaviour.

It'd be great if there was a hotkey that would allow me to simply drag a clip and have it extend the last frame. As it is, I have to move the clip up to a spare lane, snap to the last frame, extend by more seconds than I need, resize it to snap to the beginning of the next event and then slot it down into the gap, Tetris style ;)

It's not a huuuuge problem on its own, but I use a lot of markers in my videos so I can create cuts between actions and then slot voiceovers in afterwards and when you've got a couple of hundred edits it's really long!

Hi there!

We wanted to thank you for the time and effort that you have put into submitting a new idea for Camtasia. Rest assured, your request was reviewed by a member of the Camtasia product team and though this is a fantastic idea, it does not currently fit into the current development path for Camtasia. However, those aforementioned development paths may change as we continue to hear feedback and

gain more feature requests for Camtasia. As such, we encourage you to repost your feature request and truly champion its use and purpose by sharing your ideas with your colleagues and professional social circles and urge them to weigh in on the thread.

There could be a number of reasons a feature request is not selected but unless otherwise specifically addressed by myself or another agent from TechSmith, the reason your idea was not selected is likely due to lack of support from our online community so sharing and championing your feature request is crucial to ensuring it bubbles up to the top of the list of requests for the month.

Again, we truly appreciate your time and look forward to your continued support of TechSmith!
