its hard to edit text in a callout when there is a lot of text...the text box in the callout pane is too small, and you can't edit it in the preview window

Please make the text editing window resizable or allow editing of the text in the preview window

have you tried not wasting my time by suggesting i waste more time using other software to band-aid the lack of functionality in camtasia?  i shouldn't have to highlight all the text, copy it into notepad, make the changes, copy it and paste it back into camtasia every-time i want to change a word or sentence!!!!  i think not.  I'm not asking for much here.  does camtasia even support all the formatting options of notepad?  I shouldn't have to reply on other software for basic functionality.

Oh, YES!  This has bothered me for YEARS (I've been using CS since v3).  PLEASE make it possible to either resize the edit box, or, as suggested, edit in the preview window (THAT would be the best solution!)

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!  When I need to use large fonts, the tiny box is nearly unusable!

Thanks!

Actually, with large fonts it is unusable. I can't believe this issue still exists as far as I can tell. It makes adding and changing text a real pain. The notepad suggestion above is actually the best work around, but that is very sad to edit text in Camtasia you have to copy it into notepad.

Is anyone from Techsmith actually monitoring these groups? I know it's "feedback.techsmith.com" but it's not very common that anyone with any say in the matter actually comments. 
I certainly hope this feedback makes it to the product team, but since Camtasia 8 came out nearly 3 years ago, with some minor updates since then, I'm not sure they're paying a whole lot of attention to it (though I sure hope they are!).

If anyone on the product team reads this, PLEASE respond and let us know we're not just talking in the wind!

Hi and thanks for submitting your idea/feature request!

As outlined in our New Community Processes post, feature requests are open to voting up through the first, where we will then tally the votes and present the findings to our product teams. To ensure we have the most accurate data, on the 1st of the month we will be locking the threads that were listed in the Feature Request Round-up that was posted on the 15th. Once we have reviewed the submitted feature requests, our product team(s) may respond to the request, and if that is the case then that thread will then be unlocked for further discussion.

In the event that your idea is not selected for a response feel free to resubmit the idea and share it with your colleagues to garner as much exposure as possible!

Thank you again for your idea and we look forward to hearing more from you!

-Robert
