if you mean to extend the duration, then you could add the clip speed and specify speed/duration.

I think what you want is to grab the end of your clip, while holding the ALT key, and drag it out however long you need it. If you need to do it in the middle of a clip, split it first, make some room by dragging the right side over, and then extend the left side.

Paul, thanks to you and Leif (below) for jumping in. I tried both approaches, and I think I find yours easier...just hitting that alt (option) key on the Mac and dragging out the clip as far as I need it. Thanks again!

In addition to what Paul mentioned, there is the menu option Edit->Playhead->Extend Frame to Playhead that will do an extend frame on all selected media and extend them to the playhead.  This can either extend the first frame or last frame of the clip depending on if the playhead is before or after the selected media.  Note that if there are other media in the way, the selected media will only extend as far as it can until it bumps into other media.

In other words, burdensome, unintuitive, an afterthought of an approach for the mac, whereas for PC it's incredibly easy.

It was even easier in Camtasia 2 for the mac ?!?!? Why does TechSmith approach software for the mac this way?
