  1. Open your usual text editing application (e.g. NotePad, MS Word, WordPerfect, etc.)
  2. Create a new movie and fit the screen capture area to the chosen text editing application.
  3. Start recording and type a few characters in the text editing application.
  4. Stop recording.
  5. The movie's properties should display the scenes created for your movie.
  6. Double click a scene to view its properties. In the Timeline, the type object is indicated.
  7. Position
    You can adjust the position of the type object within the Timeline by clicking, dragging and dropping it in the desired location within the Timeline.
  8. Typing Speed
    Adjust the typing speed visible in your movie by clicking on the edge of the object and extending it to cover a longer or shorter time period as necessary.
