Changing Text That’s Already in a Text Track (Mac OS only)

You can replace selected text that’s already in a movie by means of drag-and-drop editing. You can also change the style of the text.

To replace existing text:

1.
Select the portion of the movie that contains the text you want to replace.

2.
In a text editor or word processor, type the replacement text.

You must be able to drag and drop text from the text editor or word processor. On a Mac OS 9 computer, Apple’s SimpleText works; on a Mac OS X computer TextEdit works.

3.
From the Movie menu, choose Get Movie Properties to open the Properties window.

4.
From the left pop-up menu, choose the text track; from the right pop-up menu, choose Text Replace.

5.
Select and drag the replacement text from the text processor to the words Drop Text Here in the Movie Info window (Figure 10.15).

Figure 10.15. To replace words in a text track, drag to the area labeled Drop Text Here.


A border appears around the words when the mouse pointer is in the right location to drop the text. The selected text in the movie changes to the text you dropped.
