Hi Camille,

Could it be that you used a transition to fade in the text? I think that 
might be the reason. I would try fading in and out of text using the 
fade line instead of a "normal" transition. Using the "Window" menu and 
then "Show Overlays" will open a new window. The fifth option "Fade" 
should be activated, so you can see the fade line in the timeline, with 
this you can fade in and out. You only have to set a keyframe and drag 
the line up or down, this changes the visibility of the text. This 
variant should be more suitable in my opinion. Maybe you can try it, I'm 
curious if it helps.
