When I split a clip into segments within the time line of Camtasia Studio, I'd like to be able rename these newly made individual clips which would allow me to organize clips without having to play all of them to know which clip is which.

Thanks TrueHelp. (I like your 3AM screenshot too!) Since the clips are pretty small (unless you zoom way in) are you thinking the name you give the clip would appear as a tool tip?

Yes, the naming would be problematic when the timeline gets full since the separate clips could appear as tinly slivers until they are zoomed in on.

Hover-over tooltips might be good.

Along the same thought, perhaps a good workaround for you for now would be to add a Marker at the point of the split.

So, click Split, then immediately press on the keyboard. When the Marker dialog box appears, enter the name for the clip.

Now, when you hover over the Marker, you will see the name of your clip.

This would be very useful for many I think. Any chance it could be resurrected, considered and implemented?
