Need help with text overlays in my story!

I’m trying to use a text effect in my story for To Be Continued, it isn’t working.
Here is the section of the scene:

&zoom on 499 333 to 179% in .2

@YOU is react_shocked_gasp AND PAIGE is read_phone_shocked_loop AND ALEXA is react_shocked_awe AND TROY is react_gasp_dismayed

@overlay CAR BUG REAR create text To Be Continued…
&overlay CAR BUG REAR shifts to 80 416 in zone 2 using easeinout
&overlay CAR BUG REAR scales to 2.314 2.314 in zone 2 using easeinout
@pause for a beat
&overlay CAR BUG REAR shifts to 70 407 in zone 2 using easeinout
&overlay CAR BUG REAR scales to 2.728 2.728 in zone 2 using easeinout

When I try to see it in the web previewer, nothing shows up. When I use the directing helper, there is the white dotted box around it like normal but I just can’t see the text. The exact same thing happens when I try to view it on my phone.
Help!

Sorry, I seemed to have said text effect instead of text overlay.

Add the opacity command
@overlay CAR BUG REAR opacity 1 in 0

Thanks, that worked! I can’t believe I missed over that lol
