Yes, Camtasia's tech support has been terrific. TechSmith is much, much
smaller than Adobe and so can afford to be more customer-focused (that's my
guess, anyway). I haven't checked, but this could also stem from TechSmith
being privately owned, as opposed to Adobe that has to answer to
shareholders (and Wall Street every quarter).
