Narration won't play, but regular record will play in Camtasia 2019.0 8 (Build 17484) November 18, 2019 (64 Bit)

After I upgraded to Camtasia 2019.0 8 (Build 17484) November 18, 2019 (64 Bit),  Windows 10.  If I do a Voice Narration, the play button won't work. 

I'm using the Nvida Graphics card (recommended in the dropdown).   But even when I select Software only mode I have this same issue.

When I do the regular record in Camtasia, I am able to play the timeline.  I tested this issue in both a new file and an existing one.

I checked the forum and this issue has happened in the past, and I guess it's happening again. 

So the only way I can do narration is to do a full record, which is a pain because I have to delete the video -- and recording many segments in my project, this is a headache.  So hoping that Techsmith fixes it with an update -- and finds a way to make the Play button more bulletproof.

Any suggestions?

I'm having a bunch of problems with this latest release as well! :(

But my issues are related to mp4 video loading, project loading, and batch loading. Almost entirely related to loading projects or importing mp4 into Camtasia. What used to take 5 seconds, now takes about 4 minutes.
