It would be nice to have built in callouts in Camtasia Studio for mouse actions (right click, left click, etc.) the way they're included for key strokes on the keyboard.  I'm developing training for engineering analysis software that employs lots of them.

This would be nice but I have done this just using callout images for right click, left click, etc. and saved them to my Library and put them where I need them when explaining to do those steps. A bit of a work around but it works for now.

Hi Albert, 

Thanks for your suggestion. A question I have for you is have you tried the Cursor Effects? I'm wondering if this would help? You can set an action to indicate right click vs left click. 

Although I can see how, if someone doesn't know what those indicators are they probably won't be helpful. 

Since we don't have specific mouse click callouts, Fred's advice is good. If you have an image that works for this purpose, you could add them to your library and have them be easily added to your timeline.
