Improve Captions Editor:  I have to keep stopping the play before going to the next frame.  When I am hitting the stop indicator, I have to hit it more than one or two times to get it to stop.  It is so irritating and frustrating.  That causes a lot of unnecessary finger movement and fatigue.  I would like to see this improved by allowing the user to just click the arrow to go to the next frame or the frame before.  This will save a lot of time!

I've previously reported that behavior as a bug; tech support has acknowledged, and handed it off accordingly

clicking the captions UI arrows is supposed to allow what you describe, but they no longer work as they did in earlier CS builds

my workaround is to select the next/previous caption in the listing on the left side of the canvas

I know your comment is 10 months old, but I used to have the same trouble in Camtasia 9.1. It was so frustrating and took so much time to edit captions. I just upgraded to Camtasia 2018 and that feature has been fixed. I  can now edit captions in one-third the time. I wasn't going to upgrade to 2018, and if I'd known the captions editing was so much better, I'd have upgraded when it first came out.
