Markers

Using latest version of Camtasia Studio.for a course including quizzing. In the production wizard I am trying to indent the TOC entries so that a hierarchy is formed. The 'Help' advises me to use the 'Move Left' and 'Move Right' buttons in the Marker Options - however there are no such buttons visible.
Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks,
Kim.

if using CS8, those buttons are not available

workaround is to use leading characters to get the indent effect; I do it like ".... Marker Text"

this lets you script any number of indent levels; just change the # of leading place holder characters; FYI, spaces do not work

Hi Kim,

Sorry about the confusion. Like Bob said in his post, those options are no longer available as of Camtasia Studio 8. Unfortunately, the topic you referenced got missed when we made updates to the help file. We work really hard to make sure this doesn't happen, but sometimes we miss a thing or two. So, thank you for bringing it to our attention.

Hopefully the workaround that Bob mentioned in his post is something you can use to achieve what you're looking for.

Let us know if you have any other questions.

Thanks all... so why were they removed. Can we bring them back?
Seems like a backward step??
Cheers,
Kim.

Hi Kim,

We removed the TOC templates in Camtasia Studio 8, and as a result, the option to indent sub-topics went with it. I'm sorry to hear it's causing you inconvenience.

However, if it's a functionality you'd like to see in a future release, I'd invite you to post a feature request here on Get Satisfaction.

Hi Leanne,

Could you please have a look at below discussion (comment 3 from above, especially) and provide some insight for this matter (Actually we ARE ABLE to get the 'INDENTS' effect (and NOT SPACES) in pre-production but not in produced video)

Also the future release you talked about in above post could be 8.4.2 (.3 etc) or V9.0 ?

Hi there,

Thanks for reaching out with your TOC comments. I did go ahead and reply to the post you mentioned above.

In short, the collapsible sub-topics were part of the Flash-based TOC templates featured in Camtasia Studio version 7. Unfortunately, those have since been removed as we chose to move away from Flash with the release of version 8.

I can't comment on the feature sets for future releases, but if it's something you're interested in seeing, I'd encourage you to submit a request.

Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Thanks,
Leanne
