Al these things would be nice, yes, but for 3 years now I've been requesting the simple ability to scrub the audio while editing. For what I use Camtasia for, this is a necessity. Choreography between audio and my presentations are key! Yet again it's not on the list.
This is really becoming a make or break point for me when Camtasia goes into its next paid upgrade.
Why can't a simple feature like this be added? Why isn't it on the list of improvements?
See here... (It's been 4 years now...) https://feedback.techsmith.com/techsmith/topics/timeline_scrubbing-vgyp3

I saw that this type question was asked and semi-answered about a years ago. I did not want to reactivate a post that old, besides the answer was not acceptable for my situation.
I work a lot with music, text and picture transitions in the presentation I prepare. Accuracy is a must and timeline scrubbing with live audio would save me a lot of time in placing transition. Having to "play" a clip over and over does not allow me the flexibility of being able to find a point in time where a transition must take place accurately.
For a product that promotes a professional and percise work environment, one would think that this type of functionality would already be included in the software, considering the type of software that it is.
Please pass this suggestion to your programming team for update consideration to the product. It should not be too hard to patch this type of functionality into the existing program as freeware and open source programs such as Blender have this capability built in to them.
For your consideration.
Thanks for submitting the audio scrubbing idea and thanks to those that added their responses. We understand the importance of audio for professional. We are evaluating a collection of audio related features for a future development cycles. We’ll doing that evaluation we’ll keep this idea under consideration as an audio editing improvement. We’ll update this post as we have more to share on audio.
Audio scrubbing has been on the books for over 6 years and you expect me to Upgrade? Why would I waste $99 (USD) to upgrade when the current version I have does everything I need it to do and (according to the update note) you haven't added features requested (and promised) a far back as Version 8? I got rooked in the last upgrade and as the old adage goes, "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, Shame on me!"
