thanks

try deleting the callout, and replace it with a new one, like one of the bold items; does that work?

You could try saving your project and restarting Camtasia. Sometimes an odd behavior like that can be corrected by restarting the program.
Did this just start happening that you are aware of.
 "Meaning" you only use Camtasia once in a while and it worked the last time you used text? Or it worked Yesterday?

I'm a fan of Repair Installs if a combination of  Computer/Camtasia Restart doesn't correct an bug like that.
A repair install is fast and remembers most of your preferences.
It's less intrusive and faster than  complete re-install.
What it usually changes is your...................  Update preferences.... Enables Send Anonymous User Data to TechSmith....Show All Tips....Things like that.
But if you settings like Transitions 2 seconds instead of 1, Mirror waveform, Custom export profiles,etc.All that stuff is safe.   

If that fails, something very strange is going on. Because that's not normal behavior and it shouldn't still be happening.
At this point. I would say you've either entered the Twilight Zone or you need Tech Support.
