When using the cursor magnify for an entire clip it only shows for a second or two.
I just installed Camtasia 3 and this is what it does

It appears it also broke Camtasia 2. The cursor magnify now doesn't work here

 Thanks for any help.

The cursor effect goes away because the cursor itself was hidden.  When you start typing, the system hides the cursor, and when the cursor is hidden, we hide the cursor effect. I definitely can see that is not what you expected, especially for the magnify effect.   Unfortunately there is no way to override that behavior.

You could achieve a similar effect using a second copy of your recording and the Mask effect, but it would definitely be a lot more complicated than just using the magnify effect.
