Need for sketch motion of an arc

I am really in need of a perfect sketch motion of an arc.

While explaining mathematical stuff, we often tend to highlight an angle between two intersecting lines.
It would be great to have an arc with a sketch motion for such purposes to make it even more professional. If not sketch motion, atleast having an arc creation would help.

You can create one easily by making a Round Sketch Motion Callout oblong and cropping it. 

Once you've created it , you can save it to the library. Then you can quickly add it to future projects without the need to recreate it.

You will probably want to change the direction of rotation  using Flip Horizontal and Vertical in the properties panel.

I did some quick testing; for me, best results required that the crop encompass just the right side of the circle so that the draw action looked correct; then, applying flipping/rotating to get desired orientation

Does the crop functionality for call outs available only from version 9? I can't find it in v8.6.

in CS8, turn on crop mode using control over top of canvas [there is a shortcut key combo but I can't remember it]

So unfortunately  Vimal

Camtasia 8 went out of production 1 year ago. There will be no updates or new features added to Camtasia 8 ever again. 

Camtasia 9 is the newest version,  it was released Oct /11/ 2016. New features may be coming to it in the future. 

Windows 10 Fall update and other circumstances delayed my response.

another option:

familiar with Camtasia Recorder's built-in Screen Draw tools?

allows drawing during a capture; the drawings display on a saved frame of the screen as the capture continues; lots of shortcut keys make using the tools a snap ...
