  • Copying Titles Problem

    Hi all, might be me.

    I create a Title Pro Title. Then once I have the format I simply want to copy it and create new text in another title (film credits or pre roll). It's extremely irritating that if I copy a title then paste it in the timeline then change the new copied version that it thinks its being clever by changing the test in the original one.

    How do I copy a title and change the text without it doing this? I've tried copying to bin...I'm sure this is simple!! :S

    Open the title, change the text then save with a NEW name. By copying and changing text then saving you are re-saving the file still with the same name so all instances will change.

        Thanks. Will do, but you must admit, that is very backward. A simply duplicate function would save all that nonsense...duplicate then copy to bin...simple...instead of this export/import nonsense :)

        Thanks though fellas.

          Doesn't work. I change the text and export it and it changes the old one too...pile of crap.

            Basically, don't change a thing and do an export. Import it into the project then change it. This is extremely cumbersome.

              in TmPro, go to file menu, choose save as, type new name, solved (be sure you save to the current projects title folder)

                Bin references are just that, they're references - just like putting multiple instances of the same clip on the timeline doesn't make multiple copies of the same clip file, multiple instances of a title reference the same title.

                In some cases this helpful, like if you're using a title as a logo bug that appears only at specific times. If you need to change the logo bug, you change one title and it's changed everywhere.

                In other cases, it's not so helpful like if you want to retain position/style of a title. In this case, open the original, then Save As to create a separate physical copy that you can then manipulate.

                  And another easy way is to use Template Manager.
                  I use this every time to preserve positions, styles and so.

                  In TM, File -> Template Manager -> Add

                  You can add unlimited templates, overwrite, etc.

                    This was brought up last year. Yes, when typing alot of TM titles, its a PIA.

                    My old ten year old editing software made auto extensions in TM: 001,002, etc., that type of thing, when I pressed CTR-S. No typing in a new name. Uggg. Believe me, after working on 180 sub-titles burned on screen, you appreciate that old 10 to 12 year old system.

                    I'm sure the programmers could write the code to fix this, but I'd rather see the time spent to fix the alpha problems.

                        yes, I had the same pleasure with Speed Razor and TM, I could copy paste and modify titles all day long, not bad for 1996, 12 years ago

                            You have got to be kidding

                            This is insane. I have to save a template every time I make a change? Are you guys at EDIUS nuts? I don't have time for this. Is there anyone trying to fix this?

                              Kind of rash for not knowing when to use Save vs. Save As...
