Problem: I always need to define a new custom recording rectangle. this requires to walk through this fiddly menu over and over again, because Camtasia doesn't remember the last used rectangle selection option but only allows to toggle between fullscreen and the last used rectangle.

Solution: Remember the last used rectangle selection option and use this when clicking the rectangle selection button.

Benefit: It wouldn't spoon-feed users with an option, they eventually may need less than any other of the options. This would save billion clicks to navigate to the fiddly submenu.

In essence you ́re saying you don ́t want to go to the "fiddly" sub-menu ->last entries?
Otherwise there are the last 3 sizes stored with at least Camtasia2.10.8:

Any last used coordinates would never help as the required recording rectangle changes from day to day. It would be ideal, if Camtasia would use the selection method of my choose when clicking the button.

In my screenshot the entries were from my last sessions - not from today.
But what you may need is a "custom"-area like we have with custom paper sizes in DTP apps for instance. So agreed. ;-)
