Working project area

The project screen is very hard to work in.

The black with grey menu items is very hard to see.

The changed positions of almost every option has made the program upgrade a learning exercise not a productivity gain.

The options that were offered on purchase were not explained anywhere on the site so I did not buy. The features advertised (green screen for example ) with the upgrade cannot be found.

It is taking a lot of time when it was presented as way to increase productivity and make better films.

Hi,
Sorry to hear you are finding the interface hard to work in. I agree, the interface is dark and especially difficult to see when working on a small screen.
Have you upgraded to Camtasia 9 for Windows or for Mac as the title of the post suggests? I ask because it was the Windows version that had the major UI change.
If so this link may be useful to you, it details the differences between 8 and 9: https://support.techsmith.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000341632-Camtasia-8-to-9-Where-is-it-now
The green screen feature is under Visual Effects in the Tools Panel on the left and is called Remove a Color.
Cheers, Jayne
