Is there any way to adjust track label widths? The default (fixed) label width doesn't allow for a very descriptive label for each track. Once you get past a limited number of tracks, an abbreviated label is not sufficient. My labels have 6 char.

Unfortunately, no.

I'm aware this isn't the functionality you are seeking.........................

However, when you hover the cursor over a track name. If the name has been abbreviated. The full name will appear.

This is something TechSmith should take a serious look at, and get adjusted if possible...Slows down the process, when you can't see your labels...

I named my track Narration
Camtasia called it Narrati...
How very Italian, I thought
As I renamed it Voiceover
Camtasia called it Voiceo...
I inserted a space
Now it's Voice...

I'm surprised I don't see these posts more often. It's so annoying to not be able to widen that for longer titles. I only found this because I upgraded and was hoping it would be there and it still isn't.

Definitely a viable workaround. I don't like the extra steps but I'll see if I can add it to my workflow and see how it goes. Thanks!
