This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Re-instate the “silence audio selection” button

In the new version, there is a slider that regulates the volume gain. So if you want to mute selection on a track, you need to cut that segment from both sides, then select it, and reduce volume gain to 0. Previously, you need just to make selection, and click Silence and you have 4 audio spots and muted selection

Yes. Highlight area on timeline as before and then do a Shift + S and that area is silenced.

Camtasia 8 is so much better than Camtasia 9  for silencing.  You removed the silence button, WHY?????   Using the Shift + s is so much slower.  Right clicking and clicking on Silence Audio is so much slower.  Please put back the silence button......what were the programmers thinking when they took this away.?
