Need a "skip all" feature

I've created a "Template" project that uses 100 image placeholders. But in most cases, the number of images will be substantially fewer.

When I open this project to use it in earnest, I'm met with the following dialog:

The only option to get the project open to use is to repeatedly click the No button for as many times as there are missing images.

This dialog in Camtasia needs to have a feature to essentially say "No to all" so that the project might be more easily opened without clicking No about 80 times.

Thanks... Rick :)

Adobe uses "Ignore All" and other similar dialogs. Depending on the program.
I have other programs that don't offer an ignore all approach.

When I've clicked No repeatedly to this prompt, Camtasia froze up and theproject ouldn't open. I had to find at least some of the files for the project to open successfully. So, not only a "No to All" option but then to also open the project would be helpful.

Agreed. Until they do, you can probably tweak the AuthHotkey program to recognize that dialog box and automatically click "No".

Thanks for the suggestion. But I've since developed a new step in my process that ultimately makes it unnecessary to deal with this dialog repeatedly. 

But even so, I think that it's a good idea for the Camtasia devs to modify the dialog.

Another thing I noticed in this process is that once you click to dismiss all the dialogs, a final screen appears that provides a consolidated list of the missing media. And that seems a bit odd for the dialogs. I could see where each dialog might be necessary if one were carefully taking note of each piece of missing media. But since you can grab the list from the final dialog, it seems silly to even interrupt with the individual dialogs. 

Cheers... Rick :)
