Unfortunately its not possible to move the captions. Their position is fixed.  To do what you want to do you have to use callouts instead.

Yes unfortunately there is no way to place the Captions where you want them as they will always be on the bottom if you burn them into your video. The other option is to have them below the video and not burned into the video but you have to take into consideration the dimensions you then produce the video at.

Daniela stated you would have to use Callouts which can be done and is a work-a-round and might take a lot of time pending on how long your video is on the timeline.

Thanks for posting and have a great day/night. Keep us updated and let us know if this has helped you out or not.

It would have been awesome to have the caption placement feature available. 

I requested it last year during the unveil of Camtasia 2018 and that's one of the reasons why I did not upgrade.

If this has not been implemented in Camtasia 2019, then that's a serious letdown. 
We have some threads running 7 years on the issue and nothing has been done. :-( :-(

Captions are the same as before. Nothing has changed.
