Camtasia (Windows): Unable to type more than one letter


As you try to input text into a text annotation in Camtasia 9 and later only one letter will show up.


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 the problem.

  • Copy and paste text from MS Word or another text editor into the annotations using CTRL + V
  • Uninstall the right to left language
  • Use a legacy annotation as shown here
