Dear Camtasia use, 

I have an audio separated for 300 hundred split. Then, I need to add 300 marker at every split. 
It's very exhausted to add marker at every split manually. I need a one solution of these following options.
1 - a shortcut allow me to navigate to next split so I can save time of adjusting the pointer at every split of 300 by the mouse and really less boredom.
2 - an option that allows me to add markers at every 300 splits at once named by serialized numbers like 0,1,2,3,4,5, .. etc

Many thanks! 

Best Regards, 
Ahmed El-sheshtawy

Wow 300 hundred splits ??

Anyhoo. If you have all your splits made you can use the shortcut keys CTRL-ALT-Period to jump the playhead forward to the next split and use the M hotkey to add a marker at the split.

CTRL-ALT-Comma jumps the playhead back to the previous clip/split.

There is no way to add markers to all the splits at once. At least not one I know of.

Here is the page with the Camtasia hotkeys

I don't fully understand your issue

are your splits evenly spaced out?  how much time between splits? etc.

could you post a screenshot showing a typical project zoomed out [ctl-shift-7]; or perhaps do a short screencast, hosted on screencast,com, describing the project, and what you need to accomplish with the markers?

all audio parts are adjacent without spaces or time between. and I need markers to produce multiple videos based on markers. simply, I have 300 audios and I need to convert them all with one picture to 300 videos at once.

OK, then, in your project, are you using the same image clip over all the different audios?

also, about how long in time is each audio clip?

Yes, it's only one image during all audios. And about time, the time of each audio clip is changeful. Every audio has different long of time.

first, ctl-alt- . or , works; you need to be sure that the timeline has the focus; I assume you are using CS9

since you're using markers to allow producing multiple files from markers, perhape take a different approach ...

make a separate project from each audio clip, add in the image, save project with a serialized number

after all 300 projects exists, use batch production [on file menu] to make them all at once

Hi,

I have suggested an approach that would make this a breeze, if I understand your request correctly:

https://feedback.techsmith.com/techsmith/topics/add-markers-fr

Of course, it's just a FR, so it's not implemented at the moment.
