No menu option to enlarge text. Dark screen hard to read as well. Initial impression poor.

Are you, by any chance using an HD screen?  I don't have any problem with my resolution on my computer display set to 1920X1080.  My impression is that Camtasia doesn't handle the HD resolutions all that well.  But of course I can't test it out.

Indeed the text size is very to small! Usual software uses windows text font and size. Also Snagit should have it again really.

Be aware of the user with 4K screen or user with strong glasses.

Thank you very much.

I agree with this! I can change the canvas white, but the text and black version make this version of Camtasia unusable for me :-(

I just upgraded to a Surface Pro and the Toolbar Icons are MICROSCOPIC (looked much better on my old Lenovo)!!  Has anyone figured out a fix for the Icon size?  I hate to lower my screen resolution (if that would work)

Surface pros support external monitors. You might want to consider getting one.

I myself, don't think editing video on a tiny screen is practical.
It's nearly impossible to see flaws in the video. Plus, the eye strain you are bound to encounter over time.
I could ramble on and on.Sighting dozens of benefits in using  a large monitor.

It may or may not be something that can work for you?

Aside from lowering the resolution of your current monitor. That's the only option I'm aware of.

It would be great if programs had UI support for 2k & 4K monitors built in.So screen magnification wouldn't be required.
I suspect one day, this will be a feature you select in preferences.

Thanks Joe.  I do run external monitors but they are still so small.  It works, but it would be so much better
