You can edit scrolling text like you edit any text on a Mac.
The only trick you need to know is to use the Tab key to navigate between fields.
Pogue on p. 209 of iMovie '11 talks only about establishing the scrolling credits. I can't get my mouse to highlight the established text so as to edit it. What gives?
In your project, the title should be a small box just above the clip where it is attached. Double click this box and the title editor should show up in the view window.
Much thanks for addressing my problem. Your reply led me somehow to realize I needed to duplicate the project and I was off into the wild blue meaning success.
