Not allowing me to add Keystroke effect to video clip

    This usually happens if there weren't any key combos recorded in that video clip.

    And THAT usually happens for one of two reasons:

    • There really weren't any key combos done in the clip. NOTE: single key presses like "k" don't count - it has to be "ctrl+K" or "command+K" and this surprises some people.
    • The recorder didn't have permission on newer Mac OS, which you might have to fix here:

  • flex capacitor

    OK I'll check those settings.

    What's the point of having keystroke effect if it doesn't record the keystrokes? 

    I was using the Up and Down arrow keys in my recording. I don't remember if I used any modifier keys. Why doesn't it save those for me? 

    Hmm... OK It looks like Camtasia has accessibility enabled. 

    I have suggestion?

    If a clip doesn't have any key events in the clip I wish it would still allow me to apply the effect.

    Another option maybe is I wish it would tell me when I drop the effect on the clip that no keystrokes were found in the clip. 

    Third less desired option, allow me to add keystrokes into the clip. Not the image of a keystroke but actual keystrokes so that the keystroke video effect will respond accordingly. WE COULD CALL IT KEYFRAMES!
