Is it possible to change the default draw time of sketch motion annotations from 1.0 seconds .5 seconds in Camtasia 9?

Hi there

As far as I'm aware there is no way to configure that default. But what you can do is amend it as you like, then save to the library. Then when you add from the library it retains what you have set.

Cheers... Rick :)

You can change the default timing in
Edit>preferences>Timing tab
Highlight the value in Annotation and type your desired time ie; 0.5

NOTE:  This will set the default time of ALL Annotations at the value you set
but you can change that value per annotation in the properties panel

Nope. That's not what she is looking for. What you are pointing out is the default length of an annotation. However, in Sketch Motion there is another time setting - Draw Time. By default, Draw Time is set to 1.0 seconds, and the annotation is set to 5 seconds. So the Sketch Motion takes 1 second to draw, and then is on the screen for another 4 seconds. What we're looking to change is the default Draw Time, not the annotation time.
