Can't edit text

Whenever i make an text and want to type something like “Hey whats up guys” The option to edit the text doesn’t come up I’ve seen people online where they make an text and they get a option to edit their text. It says something like #Timecode# But none of that appears on my screen

Adding text with Shotcut probably confuses just about everyone the first time they try it.

Once you’ve added a Text filter to a clip, Text can be edited in the “Text” field of the Text filter in the Filters tab. If you’re working on a small monitor, you might need to scroll down in the Filters tab to see it.

(there’s a screenshot in this thread Texts Missing in Exported Video that shows the text area really well.)

If you haven’t added a Text filter yet (possibly because you can’t find the filter) see this post
