Is Camtasia 2019  backwards compatible with Camtasia 9?
There we several reasons why I never upgraded to 2018.
one o them was backward compatibility
another was ?? can no long export or import Mp3??
I am looking at the new feature list and still not convinced to do the upgrade.

Appreciate some feedback here as WHy you upgraded  Thanks

For the record, altering the tscproj json and moving / swapping files that are part of a Camtasia project are not recommended or supported actions. It may cause unexpected results at present and there's a good chance it will corrupt your project now, or in the future. Changing these values may trick older Camtasia projects into being compatible with newer versions of the software, but it also bypasses important project conversion code. They are your files and you are welcome to do what you want with them, but we don't support that behavior and hope you will not recommend altering projects in this manner to other users.

Thanks for the generous donation of your time and knowledge--I know our team and fellow users really appreciate it.
