Why remove the timeline arrow keys in camtasia 9, they function differently than "," and "." keys?!?

The suggested articles DO NOT provide the solution and using hot keys or the "," and "." keys are NOT a solution to the problem either.

I need to be able to quickly get to what i am looking for on the timeline to edit large files WITHOUT MOVING THE PLAYHEAD, and for that, I need to use the scroll left and right arrow keys that used to be on the timeline function in version 8.

I like the "," and "." for moving the playhead alone for fine edits, but often I also need to move the timeline while leaving the playhead right where it's at.

Why remove the arrow keys?!? it's really upsetting. There's nothing there instead of them to impede having them stay there. 

Please bring them back. It makes me HATE UPGRADING AND PAYING FOR MORE when you take away very practical functions that make the new version a little less functional than the last. THAT'S NOT WHAT I EXPECT IN AN UPGRADE...THAT'S TAKING IT BACKWARDS

Can you please put them back, without taking away anything already there in camtasia 9?!

I totally agree. Every editor I use - whether video or audio only and even Apple - use the left key and right key to move. This is a totally backward bit of evolution.
