^ "replace with clip - from source monitor, match frame" once worked, now doesn't...!

I have CS5 and I'm working with split screen templates.   In the future I might want to do differently but I edited everything I needed...now I need to place the edited clips in split screen templates. The templates each have their own sequence...it was made so that you can place elements from the project panel to the split screen template using "click/alt" to replace the footage.   I tried to "replace with clip - from source monitor, match frame". It worked at first just as alt/click would to replace footage but all of the sudden stopped working - that's now a grayed out option.  I have my source monitor clip selected...don't know what is going on to make it grayed out. I tried copy/paste the clip into the split screen template sequence but the option is still grayed out.  The only option that isn't grayed out is replace with clip/from bin.   1)  why is this? any solutions to get it working again?   2)  are there any other options to replace footage other than exporting the clips, importing into project, and then alt/clicking to replace footage?  I'd massively appreciate any insight you could give on this. Let me know as soon as you can.

    I asked this question elsewhere so it's a pain to retype the whole...let me know if there's a way to copy/paste and get ride of it but...no advice on the problem just a comment on copying/pasting?

    I adjusted the text.

    I copy/pasted it into a text edit progam and formatted it to Plain Text.

    Hope that helps.

    I admit I'm a little confused here.  Please specify what you mean by a split screen template.  If you can post screen shots, it may also also help.

    select clip from timeline you want to replace then go to project panel and click the new footage, go back to timeline and click the footage again that you want to replace. right click and choose replace clip (by this time all options will be available). I hope this helps

    I'm having the same problem with Premiere Pro CC.

     

    I saw the option there, then closed my project because I wanted to re-open it without my mess-around changes – the whole of "Replace Clip" was greyed out.

    I think right-clicked and selected properties, closed the 2 windows that appear, and now I can "Replace Clip - From Bin", the other options are greyed out.

     

    All I wanna do is replace a clip and match frame, and it just doesn't seem to want to let me.

    I'm having the same issue also.

     

    I'm a long-term Avid editor, and this is the kind of NLE behvaiour that I'm looking for (to also exist) in Premiere, before being sold on Premiere CC. Plus it needs to be a single keystroke - right click plus context menu is too slow. Workflow things like this are everything.

     

    Hopefully it'll be fixed immediately for an immediate update via CC.

     

    edit:

     

    Further: Premiere also needs to (at least provide the option) of performing extracts and lifts but preserving the transition from adjacent media (just as Avid does).

     

    It's the little things like that that save on a lot (I mean a LOT) of time. (And time, as we all know, is money.)

     

    Get it right Adobe, and I'll buy. I want it to be right. I want a real alternative to expensive Avid. But it does need to be an on par alternative for very fast staple day-in day-out editing.
