Editing transitions in bulk

G'day all.  New to Camtasia (Camtasia V9 on a brand new Windows 10 machine.)  Have searched help and forum index re info on how to change the duration of a transition in bulk.  ie; I have 25 slides of 5 seconds duration.  I want the same transition between each slide, say a simple fade and I want this to be exactly the same length across all 25 transitions.  OK so the standard fade is 3 seconds (for example) and I want to shorten the transition duration to 2 seconds.  How can I do this across all 25 clips at once?  At present I have to highlight and shorten every transition.  Is there a way to edit transitions in bulk?

Cheers

At "edit/preference/timing" you can adjust the default timings, also for transitions.

For projects that already have the transitions applied there is another option.

You would need to hold down the shift key and left click all the transitions.That will highlight them and you can use the cursor to left click and drag the duration of  them all at the same time.

Changing the duration in preferences before applying them is ideal.

However, not when the transitions have already been applied.
