Is it possible to customize keystroke callouts besides toggling the shadow or selecting one of the 4 predefined styles?
I'd like to change colors or add my own background graphics.

I don't believe so; but you can always draw your own and import into Camtasia Studio for use in projects; manually add as you would for any image callout

Thanks, kayakman.
But in this case, I would have to write the shortcut letters manually for each keystorke, and would not be able to use the 'keystroke' functionality, i.e. just press the keystroke to display it.

correct; perhaps turn this thread into a "suggestion" so others can vote for it?

but you could make your own base set from callouts, add those to library as reusable assets, then reset colors when using in a project

you would loose the automatic "generate keystroke callouts" function, but personally, I always add mine in manually [get a better result]

I can not even change the color of the keystroke callout text?

Sadly, I do not find any option for that...

As kayakman said, Camtasia doesn't currently have this functionality, so I'm changing the post into an "Idea" so we can keep track of your feedback.

Thanks!
