Excerpt/Capsule: Learn how to create new captions for your video clips with the Caption Editor within the STAMP add-in for PowerPoint 2010.

We have already explored how you can create new captions for movies inserted in PowerPoint 2010, using the STAMP Caption Editor. Once these captions have been added, you may want to edit them by following these steps:

  1. Select the video which already has captions added, as shown in Figure 1. This will activate the Video Tools tab of the Ribbon, click the Playback tab highlighted in red (refer to Figure 1 again).

    Select the Playback tab in PowerPoint 2010

  2. Within the Captions group, click the Edit Captions button (see Figure 2).

    Tip: Don't see the Edit Captions button? You need to install the free STAMP add-in for PowerPoint 2010.

  3. This opens the Caption Editor window (see Figure 3), with all your existing captions listed.

  4. Click in the text area of the particular caption that you want to edit. Then type over existing text to edit / replace the caption text. When done, click the Update Captions button (highlighted in red in Figure 3 above).

  5. You can delete a caption by selecting the row of the caption you want to remove, and then click Delete Caption button, highlighted in red in Figure 4. When the selected caption is deleted, click the Update Captions button to complete the process (refer to Figure 3 above).
