Please, justified text.

I remember when I was talking with Troy (the Camtasia Product Manager), with Matt, and David (the programmer) in the Wonderland Conference Room, there in Techsmith, via videoconference, last summer. I am happy to see many of the ideas I shared with them, are now something real, like transitions, behaviours, etc.

However, we still having a big problem. We continue without Justified Text.

Beleive me, Text Justification is very important.

When you are trying to present a paragraph of text to a business audience, you need a serious aspect for the text, and Justification make the text be aligned on both sides, on both margins. If you have a text flow with irregular lines, it is very ugly.

Observe this picture.

On the left side, we have justified text.

On the right side, we have text without justification.

Camtasia 9 seems to be perfect, except that big error (in my opinión), and also if you take a look to the petitions from your customers, you will see this feature was asked many times since 3 years ago.

  • Please, take seriously the Text Justification feature, as something to add, as soon as possible.
  • A business audience, demand it.
  • Ask your corporate customers if they use justified text in their letters. All them, will tell you, yes, of course.
  • This won't cost you money or programming time. Adding it, is easy, and sure your programmers can do it in hours.
It is very necessary, and many video Editors, like AVID Media Composer, allows you to add justified text.
