More sophisticated text and object formatting in Camtasia please!

I often add text to images and footage in Camtasia and it would save me so much time if I could quickly align objects and distribute them evenly as you can in Windows and Adobe programmes. It's pretty basic functionality and I waste so much time aligning lists by eye and making fine adjustments to layouts.

It would also be very useful to make typographical adjustments to the text - line and character spacing as a minimum. Not all fonts look good in Camtasia's standard line spacing, especially in large sizes (65pt +).

Are there any plans to bring in functionality like this please?

I also notice that the issue of Cloud-based fonts not displaying has not been fixed in the 2018 version of Camtasia. My Adobe CC fonts do not display - they worked fine in Camtasia 8.

I really like how simple Camtasia is to use, but I'm considering making the switch to Premiere Pro for my video editing despite the vertical learning curve!

Control over vertical and horizontal text spacing is being actively worked on.
