Camtasia 9 is missing Mix To Mono (seems to have been removed).  I used this all the time to mix my video channels to a mono signal.

It's in the properties panel when media is selected:

It would be a good idea if you actually mentioned that on your audio help page:

Apologies for the late response... after seeing this, I passed on this feedback to the help-page people and that page was updated shortly after.

Hi Kevin (Camtasia),

The Mix to Mono box does not appear if the audio track has been edited and has spaces. Even 'Selecting all media on track' does not give the Mix to Mono option. Only works for a single intact audio file.

And the Share>Export Audio Only option also has no Mix to Mono available and creates a stereo track only, whether starting with an edited audio track or full one.

Yes, "Export Audio Only" has always been hard-coded to our native audio format (currently 44.1 kHz stereo but that may change). Agreed, we probably should offer some choices there.

The "Mix to mono" box should work with edited clips and multi-select. I did some quick testing with having  both mono and stereo clips selected and that appeared to be working too (no change for clips that are already mono and the box doesn't show when all clips selected are mono). If you could provide some more details on that or a short video, that would be helpful in tracking this one down. Thanks!

If you are using Camtaisa's Voice narration to record audio using the m-audio fastrack it wont allow to mix to mono.
