Making the callouts and graphics in Camtasia and SnagIt the same would help those of us that use both products in a project.

I've voted for this because frankly I've never been able to understand why (for example) a speech callout in Snagit has three adjustment points that allow you to adjust the "pointer" component of it (two at the base to adjust the width of the pointer, one at the apex to adjust the position of it), while the equivalent annotation in Camtasia has only the end point. The latter can result in some really ugly effects and therefore limits your placement of it.

My only concern is that with Techsmith's history they may take "consistent" to mean "Remove the extra  features so that they're both as bad as each other" rather than "raise the standard".
