Camtasia for Mac: Use project settings from last project as default when creating new project

I use Camtasia for mac to create many videos (>30) in a short number of days/weeks.

Every of my video uses the same settings in the end:
- white background
- mono sound (not stereo)
- noise filtering

BUT the problem is: Every video is a new project, so every time I have to choose my settings (see above) again for EVERY video. Over time this is very annoying.

Solution: 1) When opening a new project, use the same settings as in the last project (i.e. white background)
2) Offer an option to add "default" effects to new recordings (i.e. mono sound and noise filtering).

That would help a lot!

As a workaround, create one project file that has all of your settings. You may want to add an opening sequence or logo or other repeat element. Save that project file, then duplicate it >30 times in the Finder. Pretty quick and easy.
