Camtasia (Windows): Unable to Type More Than One Letter

Problem

When inputting text in the text annotation in Camtasia 9 and later, only one letter will appear.

Solution

This is a known issue that can occur when having a right-to-left language installed on the PC. The following are possible workarounds to resolve the issue.

  • Copy and paste text from Microsoft Word or another text editor into the text annotations using CTRL+V.
  • Uninstall the right-to-left language.
  • Use a legacy annotation.

    Legacy annotations are only available in Camtasia 2018 and earlier.
