(This idea comes what what we’ve heard here in this community as well as from other customer feedback methods we utilize. The feedback we gather here will help us gauge how well it fits our users’ needs. Please let us know what you think)

The Problem:  

Editing video goes faster when you can use hotkeys or keyboard shortcuts.  But, the current Camtasia hotkeys might not make sense for your workflows or be different than what you prefer.  

Potential Solution:

An option to customize the available hotkeys (https://support.techsmith.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000336311)  so you can navigate and edit videos faster

We understand the importance of having a consistent workflow that fits your style of working. We also understand that breaking that workflow and having to learn a new, possibly less efficient, workflow is frustrating. For many of our power users and those familiar with other video editors, customizing their hotkeys is desirable solution. Given the number of ideas that are planned ahead of this idea, we can’t commit to a plan for this idea. We will keep this idea in mind for the future. As priorities change and we work through our ideas we’ll take another look at this idea.

Hello all;

Please note that the status for this Request has changed (see here for details on Statuses) from "Under Consideration" to "Not Planned." Feel free to reply here if you have any questions. In many cases the Status change may mean that the feature request no longer aligns with the current workflow, has been selected to be worked on by the Product team, or that other work, such as bug fixes, has taken priority. Please continue to follow the thread as the status may change again.

-Robert

Added content stating what the status was changed from, and what it changed to (from "Under Consideration" to "Not Planned").

Good news folks. We're planning on doing this and actively working on it. I can't promise it's going to solve every wish here--Camtasia is significantly different in it's underlying structure, from many pro tool NLES. That said, we're planning on making significant enhancements / improvements to hotkey customization.
