I can't see in Camtasia 9 how to fade: spotlights, annotations and sketches in and out. This was easy in version 7 and 8 as you could just change the duration in seconds.

My spotlights are just appearing and it looks a bit harsh, I want to soften their appearance.

any advice welcome!

Look at the Behaviors. I believe one is for fading in and out. Just drag the behavior to the clip.

You can add a fade transition to a spotlights, annotations and sketch motion callouts.

The Fade behavior applies to both the beginning and end of the callout. I discovered that if I want one or the other, I can use a Transition. Just another option.
