I am on Camtasia 9. It will not allow me to drag the outer edges of my annotation to size it nor is there a scale to size it over in properties.

The blue handles indicate that you have "Crop" enabled. That's why you cannot drag outward.

With the callout selected and highlighted on the timeline. Click on the "Cursor" Icon to the far left of the Crop Icon.That will correct the issue.

Hi Joe,
I tried, but this way you can only crop but not resize - meaning that the text in the annotation will be cut-off on the edge you cropped. Is there any  other way that you'd explored? Thanks!

I had the same issue.  Holding the "shift" key while grabbing the handles allows you to resize the annotation.
