Richard Day sent me the following tip.
Larry, here’s an obscure tip on DVD Chapter Markers created by Apple Final Cut Pro X.
In my DVD, I wanted to jump to different sections, but “Use chapter markers as subtitles” was NOT what I wanted. When I removed “Chapter 2” etc. from the chapter marker text field I STILL ended up with “Chapter 2” displayed on-screen.
However, I tricked FCP by putting in a space in the marker text area. No text displayed, and the jumps worked!
Larry replies: Richard, thanks for the tip!

R Day states he eliminated the onscreen ‘chapter name’ by tricking FCP with a space in the Marker Text Area. I made a test video usung the DVD option in Share. I unchecked the ‘Use Chapter Markers as Subtitles’ and that eliminated the text from appearing. Did I accomplish what R Day wanted or was he exporting (Share) a different manner that unchecking ‘Use Chapter Markers for Subtiles’ did not work.
I’m just curious – thanx! Cory
Good question. Your technique makes sense to me. What R Day was doing was creating markers with, essentially, no title.
