The Camtasia 9 Canvas Needs Scroll Bars

If I need to add and fine tune an arrow or something on the edges of the canvas, I can't get to it if I zoom in beyond 100%.

I circled the upper left corner.



Notice. At 175% there's no way for me to get to the contents of that circle. I need scroll bars.

have you tried panning the canvas [space bar down] to move the desired object into view?

Thanks for letting me know about the panning.

I would still prefer scroll bars. I use a mouse far more than I use keyboard shortcuts. One reason: instead of SPACE+ DownArrow, I hit ALT+DownArrow and a bunch of stuff got highlighted.

Scroll bars are obvious. Also, I just did some work at 175%, zoomed out, and look what I've got now:



Now I've gotta pan the image back to the center.

Scroll bars would make this so much easier.

you can recover the canvas size/position by selecting "fit" in the project dimensions dropdown
