Several Camtasia for Mac questions

I'm switching from Camtasia for Windows to Camtasia for Mac. So far, most of the differences that started out being annoying have become fine, but there are still several things that are bothering me. 

When I'm trying to select a portion of the timeline by dragging the red flag to the right, and when the red flag goes beyond the viewing area on the right, the timeline shifts but the red flag does not follow the cursor. It more or less stops on the left of the new viewing area. I have to click on it again and move it to where I want it. Do I just have to accept the small extra effort (which becomes a lot of extra effort compounded over time)?

When I'm editing the audio, I want the audio track as tall as possible. Dragging the top border up increases the track height to about half what I want and stops. Is there a way to make the track height higher? 

After selecting a section on the timeline, I want to move the line through the timeline to a new spot with the red and blue flags with it. With Windows, I could just double click in the new position, but with the Mac, I have to click once and then double click. Over a Camtasia lifetime, that's going to be a lot of extra clicks. Is there a way to avoid the extra click?

The issue with the red flag is not on purpose; that appears to be a bug.

Sorry, you are right, there is a maximum track height. We appreciate the feedback that it isn't tall enough for you to do what you want to, but I'm afraid I can't suggest another workaround right now.

Once again, you're right, it's "click, click-click" to do what you want. I can see how if you are doing that a lot, it can be annoying.
