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.
