I feel soooo frustrated that a world class product like camtasia for mac does not have more options for putting text on the video's.

I would like to have some better options for creating bottom thirds for my videos using the text feature in Camtasia. Right now the choices are very primitive.

I know it's been a while since you posted this, but have you seen the text annotations in Camtasia for Mac v.2?

We'd love to know if they're more like what you're looking for.

This problem still applies to the current Version of Camtasia Studio v8.4.

Last year I inserted a bullet list from Word 2010 into a Text call-out.

While in Camtasia v8.3 the text looked perfectly alright, something has changed due to the update in v8.4. The line height has changed. And I just can't change line-height or anything similar now in Camtasia Studio.

I very much like to suggest to improve the Camtasia Studio Rich Text text editor for call-outs.

Microsoft provides a RichTextBox control for free - possibly that's what Camtasia Studio is already using for the Text call-out. You'd just have to add the corresponding toolbar items.

Please do.
