It would be good to be able to set Camtasia's caption fonts to something other than Arial, Trebuchet MS or Verdana. I can add annotations in any typeface I want – so why not offer the same with captions?

Hello,
You are able to change the font to what you would like via the Caption Font menu.

Here is where you can find that option:


I hope this helps!

Is that on Windows? I can't see anything like this on my Mac (Camtasia 2018.0.8).

I'm using an older version (I think) and don't see anything other than the 3 fonts there. Using Camtasia 9 on a Windows machine gives me the options Kelly has shown above. 

I don't think the Mac version is as good tbh. Doesn't it have less transitions available on Mac?

I can't make a fair comparison on this one, as I've barely seen the Windows version. I do think it's older, though, which might explain why it has more features (if indeed it does).

Just to be clear - I checked on a Mac and the fonts were not there. Same/equivalent version on Windows and the fonts are there. So could be that it is another one of those things that is Windows-only for some weird reason. One of the few apps I prefer using on Windows.

Thanks for checking, Craig.

So, dear Camtasia team, let's have this in the Mac version, please.

So, I just went and took a look at the Mac version, and there are actually only 3 fonts available to you.

Here is a look at the MAC UI, just for comparison purposes.



And, unfortunately, there is no way to add more right now.

SORRY! I will mention this to the MAC dev team just in case there is some way to get around this.
