When the description of Camtasia 8 was released, there was no mention of the fact that captions can no longer be moved below the video. In order to be ADA compliant, captions should not overlay the video. The captions in Camtasia 8 eat up a considerable portion of the screen. This significantly reduces the quality and quantity of material that can be displayed. It is virtually impossible to record in a way that has the bottom 25% of the screen blank, to leave room for the captions. Is there a plan to rectify this situation?

This week we released Camtasia Studio 8.0.3 which is a free upgrade to users of Camtasia Studio 8. One of the tweaks was the ability to add captions beneath the video without having to adjust the size of the canvas as previously mentioned in this thread.

Shane, the Camtasia Studio Product Manager made a nice overview of the changes in 8.0.3 which you can view here:

Thanks for all the passionate feedback!
