Steps

  1. 1
    We have Corel open, and it is ready to go with the project that we would like to add our text to
    .
    It doesn't matter if it's a blank screen, a picture or a video. It all behaves the same way.

    We're just going to pick a picture so that we can see it a little bit better, and add it to the first clip
    .
    We just dragged and dropped it because it came from the side menu.

    Go the center menu
    .
    It may appear different than the example, as the layout is customizable. Click on the "T", which is "Title".

    We can choose to put a border or a shadow on the text, which some people prefer
    .
    We can also add a line. Outlines can make the text stand out, but we're just going to use a 2-point black line.

    We can use a backdrop if we want a backdrop color, or we can choose not to
    .
    That is completely up to us.

    Put the cursor above the text until it turns into a hand

    Left-click and hold, and we can move it to where we would like it to be. We'll notice that it appears on the timeline.

    Here is the first clip, which is a photo in this case
    .
    The text is below it in the "Title" clip. We can enable it or disable it, but of course we want it, that's why we're adding it.

    We can hover the cursor over and we'll see a black arrow
    .
    We can use that if we want the text to span a longer portion. For example, we would use that if we added more clips and we wanted the text to keep spanning above those clips.

Questions and Answers

How to Edit text in VideoStudio Ultimate x8?

I purchased this new software few days ago and took it back to the store and got the Ultimate one and it is still doing the same thing with the text issue. The issue is that when I try to edit text it will not become active so I can change the text. I double click on the area and it will not show the cursor. Two times now I was directed to download the two updates from the site and it would work for a few text then quit again. It does not work each time I download the updates. I went through this process maybe 5 times now. Sometimes it would work for a short while and sometimes not at all. I have tried: Downloading the updates, uninstalling the software and reinstalling and also returning the software and replacing It.. I think it was caused by: I have no idea!

How to pick a text line color that is not in the limited text border selection box?

Create a Title and add text. Then try to add a line border around the text using the line dialog. There does not seem to be a way to choose a color other than those in the very limited color selection box. Article uses one of the colors in the color selection dialog. I have tried: Web searches, Corel Discovery, Corel Knowledge Base and lots of clicking. For the text line dialog, there is no Color Picker tool that I could find. The only Color Picker is for the text itself. I think it was caused by: My lack of knowing how to do it or a really bad oversight by Corel VisualStudio X10.
