Hi All,
Can any one help me putting bullet text in Camtasia 9?
I am able to copy a  list of bullet text from another application. But I never get the text aligned when the line falls in to multiple lines. Each new line starts just aligned to the bullet ( In a formatted bullet text the next line should be aligned to the above line of text - not the bullet ).

Example given below:
•  This  bullet text appears in
multiple line not getting aligned properly. 

Thanks in advance.

Ctrl+Shift+L used to work in Camtasia 8, but frustratingly is not working in Camtasia 9 for me. Not sure if it is only my system or not.

Hi there,
I'm sorry this is not working correctly for you!

Please try to add a text callout from the Legacy Style group.
Then, paste the text with the bullets into that.
I have found bulleted lists from MS Word work best.
Here is how the text looks using the legacy callout and text from Word:

I know this isn't a perfect solution but hopefully it gets you very close to what you need.

Thanks Kelly. I did raise a support ticket and Nate provided a few answers so now all sorted. I had been avoiding Legacy Callouts as they were not recognized by Mac version and I wanted as much cross-platform compatibility as possibly.  Also, Nate mentioned that for the other text callouts, you can use Alt+Home button to add bullets.  Thanks for responding.

The Alt+Home approach though uses a smaller bullet and the indentation is quite a bit smaller though, so using Ctrl+Shift+L on Legacy looks better in terms of formatting in my opinion.
