How to cover old text info in the middle of the video screens and insert new ones?

I have a Camtasia Studio v. 7.1.1 (2011).
Basically, I have a video that has outdated legends inside the video screen.
I am already inserting regular legends, but need to cover those old stats inside the middle of video screen and substitute for new ones, like putting texts over dark covering tags.
Is there any way to do it in this version?

Hi there

Assuming you don't have the original, your only hope would be to insert a shape to cover and mask the old information and then add new text in a layer above the shape.

Camtasia has supported text captions in boxes with a solid background at least since Version 3 that I recall. Usability and feature implementation have changed over the releases, to were we are now. I won't characterize the text box features as better or worse, just different. Don't expect it to perform with the formatting precision of Microsoft Office or AdobeĀ  Creative Cloud tools.
