Where is the 'Add Animation' Button in Camtasia 9?

Hello people.

Stuck again in the new Camtasia 9. Can't find the old 'Add Animation' button that used to be in the Visual Properties panel in version 8.
I'm trying to make a crop in-out animation of an item. After adjusting the crop sliders, there's no option of adding an animation feature (equivalent of a keyframe). I could do this in the old version in the past but struggling in the new version.

Any help would be much appreaciated. Thank you.

Alright, found a solution after much digging. The button has been removed and renamed but the function is still there. It's now called Custom Animation and can be inserted with Shift+A or Modify > Add Animation > Custom.

Yep. Apparently, this replaces the "Z" key to drop an animation key frame.

I actually went into Edit...Preferences...Hotkeys and set the Add Animation back to "Z" and the Add Marker back to "M". I'm testing that configuration to see if it causes any heartburn but at least it's back to what I was used to using.

Yep. Changing the hotkeys gets me my "M" for markers and "Z" for animation key frames.

Cool...

Thanks! that's great.  Techsmith needs to change this back!  Not getting the seemingly arbitrary changes to certain shortcuts, buttons.
