I used to be able to use the arrow keys to step forward one frame at a time. Now in Camtasia 8 that doesn't seem to work and I have to use my mouse to access the "step forward/backward" buttons on the player.
I also used to be able to select video or audio on the timeline and then use the delete key. now it seems I have to use the mouse to access the "cut" toolbutton or I have to use CTRL + X.
Can I get my keyboard shortcuts back?

Hi Michelle,

In version 8.0.3, which was just released today, the delete key functionality has returned and should work as you describe above.

As far as arrowing through your timeline frame-by-frame, try holding "ctrl" and using the arrow keys. That should get you frame-by-frame playhead navigation.

Here is a link to a post that has more information about the newest release:

Hope this helps,
