    Hello Jesse Anderson,

     This option is still available. Unfortunately it is kind of hidden and not in the new Screen Recorder Interface with what you are seeing in the Camtasia 2021 Version. With that being said you can still use the Legacy Recorder in Camtasia 2021 and have those settings until they do an update to possibly include them in the new UI.

    This feature can be found in the Program Files under TechSmith and you will be able to see the LegacyCamRecroder.exe file and you can then just send this to your Desktop as a Shortcut or Pin it to your Taskbar if you choose. I have included a screenshot of where you can find this on your computer below:

    Let me know if this helps or if you have any other questions. It is kind of a work a round to get to it with it being hidden so I personally hope they do a Maintenance Upgrade to this Version of Camtasia 2021 soon to get this fixed somehow. I also like the new UI (User Interface) for the Camtasia Recorder other than some of the Legacy Options they do not have in the new UI. Thanks for posting and have a great day/night.

    Please bring this feature back. Why is there no ability to change options on the new recorder?

    I would also really like to have the lock to application feature in the 2021 recorder.  It is critical to my workflow because none of my monitors are 1920 x 1080, but I record in that resolution because most of the people watching my videos will use it, and I want to avoid downscaling to preserve quality.  For now I will use the legacy recorder.  Please bring this feature back!

    Please put the options back into the recorder for Camtasia 2021. I use them all the time. I just now came to TechSmith to see what happened to the "Lock to Application" selection.

    Also, is there still no way to change from "dark mode" UI?  I really prefer a lighter interface.

    Lidongxu,

    it was explained elsewhere that you can still access the "legacy" recorder.  I can't remember if I read that in a different forum post or somewhere hidden on the website.

    On windows, It is located in the folder where Camtasia is installed. The filename is, LegacyCamRecorder.exe. Perhaps you can hunt that down on the Mac. This recorder is the one that has all the useful features that they took away.  They did an update to the new recorder a few months back, but I still couldn't find the "Lock to application" option. So, I'm still using the legacy recorder and am very thankful they haven't removed it from the installation package.

    Good luck. I hope you are able to locate it.

    I can see this has still not been updated in 2022? is there a reason this is not available?

    I'm using Camtasia 2022.  No prior version has been installed.  I do not see the Legacy Recorder.

    Is there some place I can get the legacy version with the Lock to Application feature?

    Download Camtasia 2020.

    https://www.techsmith.com/download/oldversions

    Activate it with your 2022 key.

    You can run both versions on the same computer at the same time.

    Pin the 2020 recorder to the taskbar or start menu for easy access.
