camtasia 8 textbox font issues in camtasia 9 (video)

Camtasia 9 seems to have lots of issues with cam8 textboxes and fonts also.  I was attempting to use a new cam9 textbox and just copy/paste the text from the old textbox to the new one.  Here were the problems I ran into:

- no copy/paste option in right-click menu of textbox on canvas
- no 'paste plain text option' that would ignore the origin formatting of the copied text
- font size compatibility issue
- no blinking cursor when selecting text on imported cam8 textboxes



I figured there was no need to produce this video in cam8 or cam9 as it was less than 1 min....used snagit to capture.

I have a funny feeling that TS really wants us to just finish cam8 projects in camtasia 8, and start new projects with Camtasia 9.  You technically can open/import .camproj 8, but it doesn't mean that you should.

PS:  video upload with youtube was really fast.  Screencast (not supported here which is very odd) was really slow....so I switched to youtube.  Dropbox would have been my next choice.

I can confirm that all of the legacy callout textboxes have this issue.  Text not fixed size....resizing textbox resizes text camtasia 9
