When I started to learn to use Media Composer, I came from a mouse-driven video editor, and MC was a nightmare.  The cry from the pundits all the time was - forget the mouse, use the keyboard shortcuts.  I finally succumbed to learning the myriad of shortcuts - and wow!  Editing was speeded up, made easier - and I was able to do things which simple mouse-clicking couldn't achieve.  So, I am 100% behind having keyboard shortcut options available for everything ... and including things which mouse usage couldn't achieve.  Not sure what those would or could be in Camtasia, as it is all pretty straightforward, but there is no doubt in my mind that once all the keyboard shortcuts are known, the mouse is a very slow alternative, doubling or even more than trebling the time taken to do anything.  Sounds unbelievable, but I have proven it for myself so now hardly ever touch the mouse.  Except when using Camtasia ....  :-)
