Just a quick formatting question from a writer who's in full panic mode here. When you want to superimpose words onto the screen, how should it be formatted? Any advice is greatly appreciated.

This is how I do it.
 
Super: "Year 1812"
 
Pretty simple.

I use INSERT - whatever it is (LETTER - NEWSPAPER)
 
then when finished
 
BACK TO SCENE
 
Or
 
SUPER the legend: "Once upon a time"
 
No bold, of course - just for example.

Chris & Bill,
 
Thanks for the responses. I think that either will work. Now if I could just figure out the rest of my story I would be doing good. This genre (sci-fi) is successfully kicking my butt. Ouch
