I’ve created some Pixel Rulers with Snap Guides that work in
Camtasia 8 for Windows. They should also work in Camtasia for MAC. That is if you are using a version that has Snap Lines. I believe the Mac 2 version was the first to feature snap guides. I don’t own a MAC computer to create a how to video of the workflow. But the rulers and guides are just PNG images that I created.

The video will show you how to apply and use them in Camtasia 8. The workflow is probably going to be a little different in Camtasia for MAC.

Camtasia for MAC has enough Timeline tracks to make this work.

 I hope you get some use from them. They have been a requested feature in this forum for many years.

There is a WinZip download that you will need WinZip to open. Or, there is another link that will let you download all or some of them separately. If it works well I'd love to hear about it.

The Snap Grids in the video were created  with Camtasia 8 callouts. They cannot be opened in MAC. Sorry about that.

Regards, Joe 

The first download link is a WinZip file.

Man, I'm Sorry about that Richard.

It looks like Drop Box dropped the file.
I'm attaching 2  Media Fire uploads. The first link is a libzip. Just double click it and it will install itself after you give a pop-up  permission. This only works with Camtasia for Windows.

This is just a folder that contains the rulers and guides. I made this folder available for Mac users because of libzip incompatibility between the two programs .

Hope this helps you out. Regards, Joe

This link is the Drop Box WinZip. I don't know why the link is different from the one above but this one will work.

Hey Joe,

Thanks for the files!  These are great!  I know you put a lot of time into them.  Just know that I'll be using them considerably.  I tried out the rulers and while they were in place I found myself, without thinking, hovering over them to drag a guide out onto the stage! 

I still hope Techsmith considers the rulers and guides.  They are so handy in Photoshop, Illustrator, and a few video apps I use a lot.

Again, thanks!

Best regards,
