Camtasia 9 - How to change the CURSER SIZE and HIDE CURSER from parts of the production.

  • Question
  • Updated 2 years ago

I upgraded to 9 the other day.  First production is a struggle.

I used to be able to change the curser size in Camtasia 7 but no longer see the option.  I always increase the size of the curser so the user can follow along without magnifying circles or highlighters.  Please tell me this is still available and I'm just not seeing it.

Also, used to be able to Hide the curser at certain points in the production and I don't see that option either.  Please let me know how to do this as well.

Any assistance greatly appreciated!

You select one of the cursor assets, deploy that and set values to zero

Hi Erik -

I assume your response is for the Hide Cursor part of the question.  Could you give me a little more assistance.  I only see cursor effects - pointer, left and right mouse options.  If I select any one of those, I don't see anything to set to zero in the properties or anywhere else.   It's definitely not obvious as I used to just click on the cursor option, and drag the size to increase the mouse or decrease it's size... and/or add another cursor effect and choose not to show.  Thanks for any additional steps you could provide.

I fully agree with you that the solution calls for more work than in the old version.. I see Joe has already explained the detail , so I wont go into that.

Cursor properties are located in the properties panel.To add a new cursor animation you hit "Shift + A".
Setting the opacity to zero would hide the cursor.
