How to add and edit text?

To add text to your videos, access the "Text" tab on the left side of the screen and select "Add simple text". A placeholder text will be added on the video canvas and in the timeline. If you can't see the placeholder move the play-head in the timeline to hover over the yellow text outline.


To edit a text you have to click on it to select and then click again to start editing. If the text was already selected you just need to click once to start editing.
