    This tutorial was helpful (I have Mac, Camtasia 2.3.1). But I’m having trouble. My captions aren’t wrapping — in other words, if I have two lines of text typed in the caption track, they are displaying as one VERY long line of text that goes beyond the edges of my video. I can’t seem to figure out how to make the text wrap. Any help is very much appreciated.

      Does hitting enter allow you to drop the text to a new line?
