Since Camtasia already "draws" boxes, circles, arrows and such. Is there a way to make it possible for the user to draw any word, symbol or clipart? If so.. it would make this product that much better.

Screen draw? In Camtasia Studio? I looked in the recorder and I'm not seeing it.

in Recorder; in Tools|RecordingToolbars, check on Effects

When you start a capture, you'll see the Screen Draw UI

Thanks! I did not see that. Still.. it would be nice to be able to place a word, symbol, or clipart on the screen and then the software draws it as if a person was drawing it in. Like the boxes that can be placed as "call outs."

That opens up a lot of possibilities. Thanks.. however, trying to make lettering by hand with a mouse comes up looking bad. Hopefully a new feature wherein all text can be given a "drawing" effect is in the near future.
