Personally I think all the functions in the software should be available to map to a hotkey/shortcut.
We are pleased to announce that we have just released our newest, most powerful version of Camtasia yet. Although all of our hotkeys aren't customizable, we have a subset that are:
And we have expanded out defined hotkeys, here is a subset from the Edit menu that includes Ripple Delete:
We also have a support article that shows even more.
You can buy Camtasia here or download the trial here.

As outlined in our New Community Processes post, feature requests are open to voting up through the first, where we will then tally the votes and present the findings to our product teams. To ensure we have the most accurate data, on the 1st of the month we will be locking the threads that were listed in the Feature Request Round-up that was posted on the 15th. Once we have reviewed the submitted feature requests, our product team(s) may respond to the request, and if that is the case then that thread will then be unlocked for further discussion.
In the event that your idea is not selected for a response feel free to resubmit the idea and share it with your colleagues to garner as much exposure as possible!
Thank you again for your idea and we look forward to hearing more from you!
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.
+1 for fully customizable hotkeys
I was actually talking to support with this few days ago.
I am using Camtasia almost on daily basis and I found that cutting process can be much faster and elegant if we would be able to change keyboard shortcut for Rippling (http://prntscr.com/g8mx89)
The reason why, is that when I do post production of videos, I keep my left hand on keyboard. I use "space" for playing and pausing video, then I use hotkey "S" for spliting video and with my right hand, I use mouse to select specific track which should be rippled.
The "problem" comes when I need to ripple video. Then I have to take out my right hand from mouse and find Delete button and then take mouse again.
And when I am post producing hours of video content, at the end it takes much more time.
At the end, it would be great to have this shortcut on left side of keyboard (something like you already provide for Mac users - http://prntscr.com/g8n08q).
CTRL+SHIFT+X would be great also on Windows.
