After using Camtasia 9 for some time, eventually the properties panel will not show clip properties for the selected clip on the track. I must restart Camtasia.

Please open a JIRA

Yep. I've seen it too and reported it during the beta program.

When this happens, Is it blank from there forward? What is normally required to resolve it? Restarting Camtasia? Or possibly clicking the button to hide the Properties panel and clicking again to restore it?
Does it populate if you click to give focus to other objects?

Cheers... Rick :)

Tried all that...

It stays blank in that selecting assets on the time line no longer displays the Properties. Opening & closing the Properties Pane does not help. 

Closing & restarting CS is the only solution I've found.

Rick, Lon is correct; only fix is to exit/relaunch/reload project; this bug was reported during beta testing, and Lon's method is the one tech support advises
