LR slideshow not giving me any options to add individual captions/titles to slides, only Text Template Editor even though I've added Titles/Captions to metadata

If you click on 'ABC' at the bottom of the screen, you add a text field to the lay-out. That text field can be custom text, but you can also use metadata. Both Title and Caption are options.

Thanks for your speedy reply.
The 'ABC' button doesn't give me any options at all, just Custom Text or Edit!
Custom Text adds whatever I put onto all slides. Not what I want, and also the positioning stays the same for all slides. A bit primitive!

PS
I have now restored the Default Presets in the Text Template Editor and I now have all the options. The positioning of the Titles/Captions could be improved though.
