I often need to share parts of one project with another. We need to be able to open two instances of Camtasia at the same time for each copy and pasting between projects.....or work one project while another is rendering.

As far as I can tell Camtasia 9 does not allow this?  IF so, is there anything special I need to do to accomplish this?

If not....this has been a major request for several years.

I was going to post something like this earlier today, since I've been working on a series of videos that require me to be constantly referring from one to another. It's really awful.

Really awful.

Make a note of what you need from project 2.

Load project 2.
Loading. Loading. Loading. Loading ...zzzzz... Loading... ah, finally loaded.

Get what you need from project 2 and go back to project 1. 
Loading. Loading. Loading. Loading ...zzzzz... Loading... ah, finally loaded.

That's not a workflow, that's a roadblock flow.

The only thing that dissuaded me from doing so is that it would end up in the monthly roundup (if one is being done for that month), two people, maybe, would vote for it, 5,000 people would never see it, and TechSmith would declare it "not a priority".

I get that with the amount of resources demanded in video rendering we might not be able to have multiple copies rendering at the one time, but editing? Come on, seriously.
