Replace Sketch Motion Callout with another one or batch swap.

It would be very useful to be able to swap out or change a Sketch Motion Callout. As the moment this is not possible.
Currently due to time and availability limitations I have others recording and doing some rough edits in Camtasia before coming to me for cleanup and finalization.
Often the people are the Subject Matter Experts with limited skills in Camtasia and Instructional Design and so will often do "things". I might get a project file with 50+ Sketch Motion Callouts but they might be the incorrect one to use.
It would be useful to be able to replace all of them with another one in one batch action rather tahn having to delete them one at a time and then add other one, which is time consuming.

Camtasia 8 could do just that.

You would have to select them on the timeline first.
The 4 here are different, the blue makes it difficult to see the icons.


I clicked on the Arrow and all of them became sketch motion arrows.


I could have chosen any callout from the menu. Why this functionality was dropped???

I voted to bring it back. I liked it.

Given a few minuets to reflect on this.
It was possible to accidentally change a selected/highlighted callout somewhere else on the timeline.
If you selected another one from the menu. To add elsewhere. So you would need an off button for this as a fail-safe.
That's probably why it was dropped.
