TECHSMITH CAMTASIA 9: Changes to the Duration Feature

by Kevin Siegel, COTP, CTT+

I recently received the following email from a reader of my TechSmith Camtasia 9 (Windows): The Essentials book. 

Hello Kevin,

I am really enjoying your Camtasia 9: The Essentials eBook that I purchased on Amazon recently, but I have run into a problem regarding how to extend the duration (pages 58-59) on the Timeline. 

I followed steps 1 and 2 on page 58 for the logo, but when I attempted to change (by typing) the Duration from 5 seconds to 20 seconds, I got the screen message “Please enter a number between .1 and 5,” and the time can’t be extended beyond 5 seconds. I am also attaching a screen shot so you can see the actual message. 

I have tried grouping the items as directed on page 59 and then trying to extend the duration in that manner, but that method doesn’t work either.
