Will camtasia ever have a zoom-n-pan for mac?

I make explainer videos for my company. Most of them are based on screen recordings. I had no problem making them with my pc, but now that I have a mac with better capacity I'm having problems. It is significantly more time consuming to zoom and pan in the mac version because you have to slowly, manually adjust the animations, unlike the simple zoom-n-pan feature in pc version.

Does camtasia ever plan extending the zoom-n-pan for mac? Or do mac users just have to suck it up?

I want to second this request. I did not realize that the macOS version did not have Zoom and Pan. Now I will have to do this in Screenflow.

Would just like to +1 this feature request. Yes, I know it can be done as an animation, but it is much "clunkier" than how it is done on Windows.
