BUG: Cannot animate text size when a "behavior" is added to callout

  • Updated 8 months ago
I can resize (scale) text callouts just fine when no behavior is added to the text callout, but as soon as a behavior is added then the scaling breaks. The callout frame/container scales down properly, but the text inside of it simply doesn't scale down with it.

Let me know if anyone else is experiencing this.

I was having the same problem every time. Then, I saved my work and restarted Camtasia.

That allowed me to apply any Behavior I wanted.So, there's clearly something amiss. But that's how I fixed it in the moment.



 Tech Support should be alerted  about this.

Having the same problem.  Saving & re-starting Camtasia didn't make any difference.

For now I would remove the behaviour. Resize the text, reapply the behaviour.

And report the problem to tech support so they can address it. I don't use behaviors much, or Camtasia very much these days as far as that goes.

If it goes unreported, Tech support can't fix it.

Thanks Joe - that sounded like a great idea!  Unfortunately, adding the behavior seems to interfere with / prevent the animation resize. 

I have reported to TechSmith

Your video depicts wanting a fade behavior. Note that you should be able to do this with a basic animation by manipulating the opacity as part of the animation. Or as a separate animation you add.
