Behaviors don't work on Text elements when old Camtasia files are converted to Version 9

I called tech support about the issue and this is what they said... text is converted to a "Legacy" format which is not compatible with the Behaviors feature. Even if you change from “Legacy” to "Basic" or any other, it still will not work.

THE FIX – you have to “re-create” as a new element! NOT the answer I was looking for, for sure.

I also noticed that the new, converted file has a tendency to “crash” often when editing. UGH!

Thanks for the info. Maybe they will add that to their list of update.

I hope so Bob. I understand it may be difficult to write code for this, but converting a file when a major part of the conversion is for editing text elements and using new attributes, and that function is void, well, maybe they shouldn't encourage the conversion at this point of a new platform until it works. Thanks for your comment.
