Adding text to Camtasia 9

I have seen a friend use Camtasia 8  and liked what it could do and I played around with the program. I have downloaded the trial of Camtasia 9 and I can not add any text in any of the "Callout" boxes.

Version 8 had a box that popped up on the side of the screen that text was entered into and then it appeared on the video box.  There does not seem to be an edit box that I can find in version 9.

You work directly in the callout box on the canvas to enter the text. Double-click and highlight default text and then type away!

Thanks.  When I opened the callout - it placed an arrow on my video.  Duh - I had to scroll down to find the T for text menu.  I'm good now.

You need to click Annotations - select the text box, drag it over to the canvas - then as per gisman above...  double click it and away go.
