Hi Rosie, I think u need to understand what the interface in the last screen shot is doing. It’s replacing the display with the contents of the field(s) specified – up to 5, one in the top slot, bottom, left, right and inside. Most stock fields are formulas, so changing what is output and placed in those slots is non-trivial. So, in summary, are we up to speed here?
For ur problem of overwriting, try deleting and re-adding the field(s) you want to display. If this is still happening, and the scale of the timeline is wide enough to display the text, then there might be a bug in your version of MSP. Make sure all the patches have been applied to your version. Best, Jigs
