Remove mouse click sound Camtasia 9

I accidentally recorded with "record mouse clicks" enabled.

It's a 20 minute video.

Is it possible to edit the project file to remove the mouse click sounds only? If so, how?

Mouse click sounds when enabled record directly to the Microphone audio track.If you didn't record narration that needs saving using the microphone.
You can delete that track in the editor.

Do you mean the mechanical sound of the mouse button clicks were recorded by the mic or the system sounds? The system sounds you can switch off after the fact. Mechanical sounds you can try filter out using the noise reduction option to train using the click sound as the "noise example".

I haven't done that before but have you tried splitting the audio from the video track? If the mouse clicks were recorded separately, you should be able to check it once all the audio and video files are separated.

Just right click on the track and click "separate audio from video". 

If that doesnt work, try rerecording just the audio if you can.
