Hey!

I think Camtasia has a function when you need subtitles for a long movie for example where you can just import few pages of WORD or TEXT and then you just listen to the audio and click a button and everytime you click the button it creates a new "subtitle page". But I cannot find this function on my CAMTASIA for Mac (I have bought Version 3 - but not sure how to get higher verison of camtasia)

Thank you

I have the feeling maybe this function is only available on windows. If this IS the case is it possible to open a MAC camtasia project file of MAC CAMTASIA 3 in latest version of windows camtasia if we buy another windows license?

You are correct on both counts - Camtasia for Mac does NOT have that feature (captions need to be typed in section by section). But, yes you CAN do this in the windows version and bring the project over.
Even better, though, is you don't need to buy another license. With Camtasia for Mac 3 and Camtasia Windows 9, your key will work with both, and you do not need to buy a second license. It's one license for both platforms and you as an individual can use it on both. 
What you can't do is, say, use the mac license for you and give the windows license to a friend; that would be outside the License Agreement.

Hi Emma,

Here's a link to a help article on captioning options in the latest versions of Camtasia: https://support.techsmith.com/hc/en-u...

The information about syncing captions pasted from a script is all the way at the bottom of the article.

I'm not sure I'm understanding you, beatrixwilliams. We were saying how the "paste a script" style captioning is available on Windows, but not Mac (though you can still caption another way on Mac). It doesn't matter if you windows 7, 8, or 10...
