V1 : Main Video
V2: Transparent color (Open Other)
V2: Text filter.
With the transparent color on V2, you can use the text filter by slicing, spacing out your text to appear exactly when you want it to. This also allows you to fade in/fade out your text so it just doesn’t pop on the screen then pop back off.

Quick & Dirty:
V1: Main Video
Then just split where you want to have the text filter, click that clip and put a text filter on that clip. But there is no way to fade text, it would just appear, then disappear once that clip is done.

It’s ok. It’s probably best to go through all of the tutorials to learn about Shotcut so you can better follow along. V1 & V2 are video tracks, but when you watch the tutorials you’ll understand a lot more rather quickly.
