Unable to stretch video vertically or horizontally in Camtasia 9

Hi there, in Camtasia Studio 9, I was easily able to stretch a 1120x840 recorded video onto a 1920x1080 canvas without any black bars whatsover. It fills the whole canvas. When I try stretching a video to fit the whole canvas on Camtasia 9, I can only stretch it diagonally and I can't fit the entire video onto a widescreen format without black bars. I was easily able to do this on Camtasia 8. Does anyone know what to do?

Try holding the "Shift" key as you click and drag a handle. If that doesn't do the trick, then it's possible you've found a bug and should follow Joe's steps above. I'm on 9.0.1 and holding "Shift" works for me. I believe this is a change from version 8.
