with a long video/audio track - is there a way to mark or tag certain spots to be able to find them easier?  or do i have to write down the time on a post it note and then scroll ?

i may need to review certain places more than a few times, and i do not see a way to mark or tag a spot to come back to it later while working on it in the project

easiest way is to put a caption at those spots; then navigate to a spot using the captions tab UI

You could also try using markers, specifically media markers. Here's a short video tutorial that covers how to add and manage those: http://www.techsmith.com/tutorial-camtasia-8-introduction-to-markers.html

markers worked great, i can also use them to make a table of contents. thanks josh. i tried captions too, they appear to work good for this too. have to zoom in or the box is a razor thin vertical line. the media markers are big and readable no matter the zoom level for the track. thank you all for the suggestions, very helpful!
