More keyboard shortcut/hotkey customization needed

We need more customizable keyboard hotkeys.  I typically edit using my left hand on the keyboard and right on the mouse.  I can split using the S key, but I'd love to be able to map the delete or cut function to my X key (no control needed).  I know it's a small thing, but I do a lot of editing and this would speed up my work and increase productivity.
Personally I think all the functions in the software should be available to map to a hotkey/shortcut.

Hi there!

While we worked to improve the hotkeys in Camtasia 9, we are aware that some additional revision still needs to be made and while we do not have any specific date in mind, we are looking to revisit and improve the current hotkey situation. Much in part due to feedback such as this and as such we truly appreciate you taking the time to submit your thoughts and ideas; it certainly pointed out a few things to our Product team and because of that, we will be looking into ways we can improve these in a future update.

Thanks again!

-Robert

Customizing hotkeys is being actively worked on by the Camtasia team. We're opening up everything that we can to be customized by users. Exceptions would be reserved system shortcuts (e.g. Ctrl+S) and hotkeys that have mouse drag modifiers.
