Yeah OK.  You're right - I've been in and out of hospital these last few days so not really concentrating on what I'm reading or doing quite honestly.  Yes, there are thousands, millions even maybe, of shortcuts in Camtasia, that is the good news, but only a handful are customisable and that is the bad news. And very strange.   I mentioned I use Media Composer, which also has 6 million (give or take a few) shortcuts - and all of them as far as I am aware or have found, are customisable:   I have indeed customised the 80 or so that I actually use to make them easier and more memorable to me.  I think I did mention in one of my posts that only a few are customisable in Camtasia - when I first saw those - about half a dozen maybe - I thought that they were ALL of the shortcuts that were available.  Wrong of course.  Thing is, I use Camtasia only for the odd 'tutorial'  I do, and they are usually little more than a simple demo of a specific feature or two, so I happily use the mouse.  If I had many to do, or they were of any length - more than a few minutes long - then I would want to go the keyboard route.  Definitely.

So, in summation, I'm all for shortcuts, and all for having them (all) customisable, or the majority of them anyway.  Things like embolden and italicize and of that ilk (i.e. common to other programmes) I would understand if the option to customise wasn't available. 

Have I said too  much and upset someone again?  Probably.
