My video shows up tiny in one corner of the canvas.

I'm new to using the laptop webcam to record on camtasia. I have recorded a small segment of video and on the canvas it appears in one tiny section on the lower right. I would think that there is a way to default that video to fill the canvas as opposed to manually moving it around. I have included a screen shot. I'm using version 2019.0.10.

Thank You
Tom

Camtasia positions the webcam in the lower right corner by default.
Same goes for the scaling.
There are no user defined default settings.

Thank you for your reply. What would be a good work around then? I suppose that I would have to manually re position each video recording that I do with the webcam. Correct?

If your working with multiple recordings in the same project.
You can make adjustments to one of them. Then copy and paste the properties into the others.



You could select all of them at the same time, adjust the properties of one, and the subsequent videos will follow suit.

New to this too. But as I understand, Camtasia "records the screen" .  Your webcam is included IF it is displayed on the screen.  My approach is to record my webcam video with another app and then import that video into Camtasia for editing.  I use the Camtasia recorder to document/illustrate
(record) how to use a software application I am developing.

Thank you for your reply. That is interesting. 
Is there a way to NOT have the webcam displayed on the screen?
And, what other webcam app would you recommend if not using the camtasia recorder?

Thank you again
Tom
