Italic fonts clipped on final letter

How do I get rid of the clipping on final letters which are italic? See screen shot. Adding a space or two doesn't fix. Adding an additional character like a period is unacceptable!

Version 8.6.0 (build 2054). On Windows 7 Pro with SP1. 6GB RAM, 64-bit.

Have you tried adding a "Hard Space"?

Or copy a non printing character from the Windows Character Map and paste in.

You need to Re-Size the text callouts bounding box.
 You will see some text boxes with and without the error in the image below.

Camtasia remembers the last text style callout you used. When I applied one this morning I got the same text callout with error. I played around and discovered what was really going on. So I deleted my previous post and updated it with this one.

I realise this is an old thread, but hoping Joe is still watching and can reply.

Joe, can you please provide more detail about what you do with the bounding box to avoid this issue? I can't seem to get the text to stop clipping, no matter how I resize the box (vertically and/or horizontally).

Thanks in advance!

What font are you using? Is this Camtasia 8 or 9? How about a screen shot of the issue.

I have a similar clipping problem but it happens with the left side of the text.  When using fade or slide right transition (perhaps others), the first letter gets clipped until the fade is almost complete.  This can sometimes be addressed by adding a space at the beginning.  It's like the transition sets its own borders that are smaller than the borders of the object it applies to.
