Where should new recorded clips go in the timeline? Certainly not where they're going in 8.0.2!

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Camtasia 8.0 Wants to Create a New Track for *every* Clip I Add?

I perform a screen capture. I stop and edit. I want to add another clip, so I start recording again. When I'm done, I select Save and Edit. In Camtasia 7, the new clip happily went into the timeline at the end of the previous clip.

In 8.0, the clip went into Track 2 (I'm recording in Track 1, period), at some random position. I have to drag the new clip to the end, and move it into Track 1.

In 8.0.2, the new clip goes in Track 2, but at THE BEGINNING of Track 2. So I have to scroll back all the way, drag it all the way to the end, and place it in Track 1.

This is now making me crazy. It's even worse in 8.0.2 than it was in 8.0.

What the heck? This used to work exactly the way I wanted it to work in 7.0. I can't believe I'm the only person on earth who wants/expects this behavior. Am I missing something? -- Ken
