Is the second title in the same clip or a different clip. I found a workaround if they are both in the same clip.
If it is one long clip in your project, drag a selection so the yellow border is big enough to completely contain the first title and then EDIT/SPLIT CLIP. You should now be able to add the second title.
Thank you AppleMan1958. What you have suggested is a good work-around. It did indeed work. I don't really consider this problem solved because it didn't explain why the iMovie program won't let us add more than a couple of titles, in my case an overlay.
I can add all the beginning and ending titles that I want as long as they stand alone. The ones that have text over the movie were the problem for me.
To anybody else wanting to use this work-around; be sure to do all of your volume, color, and other editing for the things that must be changed to the entire length of your project before you begin chopping up your movie with edits for adding titles. Otherwise you will have a rough time trying to match everything in each of the individual clips.
Good luck everybody.
I'll try to post a link to the finished product. I hope Apple moderators don't kill the thread just because it shows a video that isn't about Apple computers.
