Add to the Camtasia Studio outline around the text added in the movie :) .
I really miss this option if Camtasia had it in the new version  i would be very glad . :)

Yes. Just... yes. There's a shadow option for bare text but it does very little and is not very customisable.

If there is one thing that I really want to see addressed in Camtasia 9 (aside from the audio recording options that were taken away from us when we went from .camrec to the crippled .trec format), it's text enhancements. Outlined text, tables, bullet point lists that come in in the style of PPT without needing to use PPT (especially when it's just an overlay; this can be done but it's manual and fiddly).

Text is definitely the weakest link in Camtasia IMHO. I'm up for pretty much any and all enhancements.

Most Video editing Programs have a full featured  text tool.

They include Text Color Gradients, outlined text, bullet points etc.
And even more Important>>>Text Animations. You should be able to have  scrolling credits, fly in text, type on text, etc.

This would be a great feature for  Camtasia.

Yes, yes and yes! Hopefully TechSmith have these sort of things in the pipeline.
