Change speed of lower third - Camtasia 2019

I'm using a built-in lower third, but I want to change the duration of it. Just clipping it from the end frame clips off the end of the animation, so I can't see how I can change the duration of it without going in and manually moving/editing each of the layers within the lower third. Is there an easy way to do this?

Joe that is a great explanation and if I would have seen it earlier I would have suggested the same thing. Great method. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, Joe for reminding us that clip speed adjustments can be made on most everything on the timeline,  Camtasia library assets and standalone clips. And that reminds of a caveat. If the asset contains an audio clip, speed adjustments on audio can produce unexpected results unless you are going for a special audio effect.
