Icons Only for Options and Features

In the area for Media, Library, Annotations etc. allow for the option of icons only.  That way you could have two columns of icons (...without the wording) and fit all of them in one view instead of having to click on the "More" button several times (...actually a lot) during the editing period.

This is one of those things where you don't realize how much it annoys you until someone else points it out. Maybe this is not a problem on big screens? Us laptop users sure notice it.

You can collapse the Toolbar in the Windows  version of Camtasia.

Just position the cursor over the dividing line between the Library and Tools/Annotations/etc.

You can gain some real estate by collapsing it. I agree with the Icons only request.

In case you haven't noticed this feature yet?

I think the developers got this one wrong. Although it is true that you can collapse the toolbar, this gains HORIZONTAL space, not VERTICAL space. What would be really nice is to collapse to icons that take up only 50% of the vertical space. Like this (thanks to Techsmith SnagIt)

You can adjust that to, if you can live with the smaller canvas area.



What we really need is 100% customizable UI's. But that ship hasen't gotten much traction from what I've seen. TechSmith has it "Under Consideration". Which gives me little faith it will be implemented.
