How can I edit the text in the new Hitfilm 12. I want to change the color and correct a typo etc
All you have to do is click the "A" icon on the viewer. On the bottom left there will be a workspace that has two tabs: Media and Effects. There should be a small arrow, click that until you see the text tab. Click it, and you can customize from there.
@BIGSKITTLE skipped a small step. Once you click the text icon, highlight the text with the mouse. Then you can edit it.
It looks like you're new here. If you want to get involved, click one of these buttons!
