HI. I just got a new laptop and reinstalled Camtasia Studio 8 (8.6.0). 

I noticed that I no longer have the ability  in the Recorder dialog box to setup my mouse so that when I click it, while recording, it appears with coloured circles. Where can I set this up?

you need to set Recorder to capture as AVI file type

otherwise, Recorder will capture as trec file type, which will let you set cursor properties in the editor

Thank you!  That worked!  Is there way that I can change my mouse setting after I've already recorded?  I use highlight mouse clicks = shapes = rings and in our company's branded colour which I enter with RBG code.

capture as trec file type; then add your cursor effects during editing

in Camtasia 2018, you can also then set up a cursor effects profile using the Library ...
