How do you add more than 1 text box in Windows Live Movie Maker??

Hey,
Ive been having this problem for awhile, and i just cant believe that
i cant find how to add a simple text box to picture/title page.
I have two questions:
Where do you add a text box?
Can you add more than one?
Im sure its probably something simple, but i just cant figure it out!

-Thank you.

You can add and caption too. Just drag the slider to the place where you want to add text (select caption).

I know that you can add a caption like that, but how do you add TWO captionS to one page?
Ive tried just pressing Caption again, but it just highlights the caption i already have.

That's because the slider selector is in the area of the first caption.

Move the slider to a new area where you want to add the new caption

You cant put two captions on top of each other .. That would not look good.

You can Click on the text box handles .. Stretch the text box ..
Then edit the text to include more text .. like a second caption ..
Is this want you're looking for.
WLMM is a little limited in that you can't add a second text box (that I've found)

Your other option is to move the slider .. and add another caption ..
Side by Side in the time line.

Yes, stretching the text box is kind of same as adding two or more captions, one can put text where ever he wants.
