Feature Request: Toggle individual cursor effects

First, great job on Camtasia Mac 3, particularly with the editor. Much improved over the older versions I used on Windows and Mac.  

Here's a feature request: I'd like to be able to toggle individual cursor effects on or off.

For example, I often use the Cursor Highlight effect, so that users can see mouse clicks. However, there always seem to be a few stray clicks that were either unintentional or would be distracting to the user.

Right now, I have to Edit > Split All at the point where I want to hide an individual click effect, then trim the cursor effect track to remove the click.

I'd like to be able to right-click a particular instance of a click-effect in the cursor effect track, then select 'Hide Effect' for that individual point, with a corresponding 'Show Effect' to unhide a previously-hidden effect.

Thanks for your consideration!

It's not quite as simple as your suggestion, but one thing you can do is 'trim' the effect, without having to split your clips. Here's a short video:
