Marker length too short for effective screencast TOC entries in Camtasia 9

  • Updated 4 months ago
The maximum length of markers in Camtasia 9 is 40 characters. Since these are used to create the table of contents on a screencast.com streamed video, this is very limiting. Can you change it to match Camtasia 8 which didn't have this problem? This is critical to my continuing to use the Pro version of Screencast.com.

I'm experiencing the same problem. I see this post is 12 month old, but no reply. It would be nice to receive some answers from TechSmith support.

Nice workaround. Now if Techsmith would only change the limitation on editing that field directly, since it seems display is not a problem!
