Timing of callouts

I've recently been provided with Camtasia 2018 to replace Camtasia 6.  In my old version, dragging the beginning and end of a callout would move the playhead and I could watch the video move as I positioned the callout on the timeline.  This made it really simple to get the timing of the callout right, and was fundamental to the way I created videos.  But the new version doesn't do this.

I've been through the options and can't find anything which will make it do what I want.  Please tell me I'm missing something, as it's driving me nuts.  I'm seriously considering digging out my knackered old laptop and firing up the old version.

TIA,

Jon.

Hi there

Hmmm, it's been an awfully long time since I've used version 6, but I don't recall that specific behavior.

Unfortunately, I don't believe there is a way to coax this behavior in 2018. Not that I've ever seen.

Cheers... Rick :)
