Adding text boxes to your video

If your scene has a text layer ready, simply click twice to select the layer and start editing the text. If it doesn't, follow these quick steps:

Click Add Text button in the vertical menu bar along the left side of your browser window

Drag your text box to quickly and easily resize your text

Add as many text boxes to each scene as you need using this method

Deleting text from a scene

To delete text from a scene:

Select the text box you'd like to delete

Click the red trash can icon above the text box to delete

Formatting your text

Once added, there are many things you can do to make your caption pop off the screen.

On the right sidebar, you will see the following options under Text Properties:
