Hi Everyone

I have added a rectangle shape to take up full screen. I have changed the fill to gradient. There appears to be only one type of gradient availabe - Horizontal: darker at bottom, lighter at top. 

Do we know yet if other gradient types are available or creatable? e.g. circle gradient, star shape gradient, diagonal gradient etc.

At this moment the gradient you described is the only one you can make automatically in Camtasia. If you want to change its direction, as a workaround you could export it as an image and then rotate it, but the other gradients you mentioned are not available in Camtasia at this time.  (Of course, it is always possible to create and edit any image outside of Camtasia and then import it.)
