Camtasia Feature Request: How's about a Favorite Tools panel?

Hey, Camtasia folks.

So while I appreciate all the fun new animations, transitions, annotations, and other tools in Camtasia, it turns out I really only use a handful of them in my day-to-day work. I like to have a consistent look to my screencasts, so I tend to not go crazy with the variety of stuff my videos.

With that in mind, I'm finding it slightly annoying to keep switching back and forth between tool categories every time I want to add another fade or a custom animation. What would be great is if I could select my top favorite tools and have them all appear in a single panel. Then I could edit my videos to my heart's content and probably never have to switch between tool panels again.

Whadaya say?

What a Great idea. It would also be great in SnagIt as well.

Yes, please! When I started using Camtasia 9, this was the first feature request that came to mind, and I am glad to see I'm not the only one!

Hi Todd;

This is a really great idea and I brought it up with the Camtasia technical product leadership team and though the idea of a Favorites Tool is not in the product development chain at this time.

However I can say that we will be, in the future, releasing an update to Camtasia 3 that might help with this particular request. While I can't give details, I can say that it will be a wonderful addition that may act as an efficient workaround.
