Bug Description

Hi

My girlfriend is using OpenShot for a school project. It does most of the things she wants to, but some functions are really hard to discover. For example, she wanted to show some text with the video as background, and she though OpenShot could not do it.

In Ubuntu, the menu is hidden by default, so you only see the menu items after you mouse-over them. She did not find a title/text function, and she did not think to look in the menu bar, so she asked my help.

Possible solutions:
 - Add "add title" icon to toolbar.
 - Add "Animated title" and "Title" as effect in the "Effects" tab.
 - Add "Titles and Text" tab next to "Effects"

I have not looked at the code, but I think the first one will be the most easy one to accomplish.

Extra:
 - Change "Title" to "Title or Text"

Thanks

Ubuntu is a special case i.e menu is hidden and that's not all LInux
distribution. In more, like we will come on Window and on OS X. ...
I don't tag it like invalid because the idea of having an icon toolbar is a
good idea.
Thanks.

OUps. I've completelly forgotten that I've introduced in the 2.0 something very interesting at this level and for others functions which, I'm sure that you 'll like. But I can't tell you more now.You'll see that later.

Thanks! Any time estimate on v2.0?
