Camtasia 9 Project Settings Canvas Dimensions

I recorded a video with custom canvas dimensions. I don't know what the exact dimensions are - I can't find them in Camtasia 9 (I thought version 8 displayed them).
Our videos always have a PowerPoint slide at the beginning that describes the video. It was made specifically to fit a canvas of 1280 x 720. Here's my problem. I edited the entire video with my custom canvas size.  When I added the title slide, I can't get it to fit in the custom canvas. When I change the canvas dimensions under Project Settings to 1280x720, the slides look fine, but the rest of the video is off. Is there a way for the video and title slide to have their own canvas settings?

At the top of the Camtasia screen there is a % with a number, like 100%.
Click the small down arrow on the right of that box and choose Project Dimensions.
That will tell you the dimensions of your project.
You can either change the project dimensions or create a Slide to match those dimensions.
Of course if you change the dimensions of the project you will need to resize your project
to fit the Canvas.
