So, wanted the new functionality and "stability" of Camtasia 9 to produce a large set of tutorials for a large government simulation that could be produced on a DVD. Essentially a large collection of separate tutorial videos selectable from a primary front-end menu video. This was/is completely doable in Camtasia 7 (last version I had). Only after waiting months to get the software purchased and in my hands do I find out that the built-in functionality of "hotspots" to link to local files is now incomprehensibly missing in the Windows version, but is STILL available in the Mac version! Seriously? My coworker has a Mac that he uses for development, and there are no other Mac systems available for me to use, and no, I'm NOT requesting a new Mac purchase! Totally disappointed that any software company would REMOVE functionality, especially something so common as use of a local file structure for linking for tutorials NOT published to the web. So, now I have to either use the old, buggy Camtasia 7 to make this work, or I have to build a custom front-end html page to link to all of the tutorials. I can't even do so using links from one tutorial to a corresponding follow-on tutorial unless it is all in the same video! Just to give you an idea of what I'm facing, if I were to put all of these tutorials into a single video production it would likely approach 2 GB. and I can tell you from experience that rendering that one video will likely crash Camtasia every time.

Seriously, fix this.
