To my knowledge, there is nothing SnagIt offers that would help you accomplish this. At least, there isn't if what you are seeking to do is to use the SnagIt Editor, open the video, then edit the text.

However, SnagIt COULD be used to create a colored rectangle, add the text to the rectangle, then save that as an image that could then be added to a video editor such as SnagIt's younger sibling Camtasia. And in Camtasia, you would import the image SnagIt created, then overlay the text so your image covers up the old text in the video and the new text is then presented.

Cheers... Rick :)

many thanks for your reply Rick. I am trying to remove students names from a scrolling comment sidebar during a recorded lecture. i want to remove the names but keep the comments that the students made. it sounds like this may not be possible on snaggit. many thanks, Sarah
