Camtasia 9: What's on the Timeline???

  • Updated 8 months ago
I am using Camtasia 9 on Windows 10 64-bit. I use a relatively low resolution because of my significant myopia: 1280 x 768. I am having difficulty seeing what I put on the timeline. I believe that I put two separate recordings I made on the timeline. I want to cut off the last part of the first one, which should be on the left and then slide the one right right next to it so that it appears to be one contiguous video. However, when I look at the time line, I see how long Camtasia thinks the content is. I can see "track 1" with no indication that there are any other tracks. I do not see either video or the graph for audio. What do I have to do to see both videos, where one stops and the other starts?

Also, I could see a horizontal scroll bar in Camtasia 7. Why can't I see in Camtasia 9? I read a forum post on this subject and expecteed that this bug would be fixed by now. Thanks.

Hi there

You might want to try double-clicking the little dot on the slider that controls how much of the timeline you see. 


That action should coax the entire timeline into view.

Cheers... Rick :)

Thanks, Rick. That helps some but where's the scrollbar so I can move to the right or left on the timeline?

Can you share a screen capture of what you see?

For me, when I do that, the full timeline with media is displayed. I do see a scroll bar, but it really cannot be dragged until I zoom in on the timeline.

Thanks. For scrolling, let's say I have a video on the timeline and I want to go to the end of it. I didn't see a way to scroll there. Do I have to zoom in to accomplish that?

Have you tried using Ctrl+Alt+. (that's a period)
