Why did you remove the mute button? Major turn-off and will keep me from upgrading any of my licenses.

Click the audio segment top left (you should see green overlay in the timeline) then do Shift + M

Hello!


If I make the assumption you're using Camtasia version 9 (Windows) the hotkey for silencing audio is Shift+S, not Shift+M. You can also right-click on your selection and choose "Silence Audio".


Also note that you can drag the audio bar up or down while a timeline selection is active to raise, lower, or silence the audio just for that section. I've attached a gif illustrating the steps.


Hope that helps,

-Josh

This doesn't make sense - TechSmith, just put the button back in.

I was able to do it.  The command is Shift-S on my rig.  Or like he said, silence audio.  This also seems to be destructive because I see no way to un silence an area so a mute button per clip makes more sense?  Wait- now I see there is a node in and out added to make the muted section, so that can be undone.  Does anyone know how to togle the green volume line on and off view-wise like in 8?

Jeff, in CS8 it wasn't toggled so much as the green volume level appears when the track is selected.  If that doesn't work in C9 it "has" to be a bug.

No, I do see the line.  I just thought in 8 it was seeable or not.  It is ok on 9

Sorry!, It just dawned on me you are referring to a mute button where I have been referring to the Silence button, including below.


Jeff, select another track or object if you don't want to see the green line. It is the same as seeing, or not, the text in a callout depends on if the callout is selected or not.

For newcomers to this thread, Joe Morgan created some nice screen shots depicting this conversation.
