If you want to duplicate a text title created in the opened Titler or a title template opened in the Titler, you close the Titler and go to Project Assets and right click the thumbnail for the text title or title template and then drag that file to the Timeline. Double click it on the Timeline to open the Titler if you want to do edits on the duplicate.
Expert workspace Edit Menu/Duplicate is not the place to go. Expert workspace Project Assets and right click/Duplicate is the place.
Please review and consider, and then let us know if the above worked for you.
Yes, thank you . . . now I have it working, following your suggestions! For some reason, the first title template I created never even made it to Project Assets, even though it sat there innocently on the timeline!! I have a feeling that, after I created it, I didn't exit the procedure correctly. Anyway, all's well. Thanks again!!! Jeff
Wonderful news that duplicate from the Project Assets location is working for you when working with Titler text titles as well as the Title Templates. Great job working through the details.
