    Issue Duplicating Titles


      Hi, I'm using Premiere Elements 14 on Windows. I'm having issues duplicating titles. I created a title using a Motion Title template. Originally, I tried to copy and paste the title to create a new instance, but i found this just created a clone where the words were duplicated in each of the titles.  I read online that i should duplicate the title clip instead in Project Assets. Even though I rename with a different name, I am still seeing a direct copy of the text in each clip (e.g., if i change it in my 2nd duplicated copy, it makes the same change in the original in the Project Assets). Any advice?  Is this because I'm using a motion title template? Could I save this title as a template (note: this was already a pre-developed motion template from Adobe) to reuse (as I've changed the colors, etc.)?  Any help is greatly appreciated!

          As I show you in my book, you need to duplicate, not copy your title.


          To duplicate, right-click on the title in your Project Assets panel and select Duplicate.


          Copying produces a clone of your title, and any changes made to one are made to all clones.


          Duplicating produces a separate file identical to the original that you can edit separately from it.

            I have not found the principle and procedures for Classic Titles to be the same as those for the Motion Titles for Premiere Elements 14 Windows 64 bit.


            I confirm your results where you clearly state you are using Motion Titles and have looked at both Copy/Paste and Duplicate Results. If you use the Duplicate approach on a Motion Title, you change the text in the Duplicate, you change the text in the Original. I am not sure how to overcome this other than to create a new Motion Title for the second instance.


            As for Saving the Motion Title. Problems have been reported for that. That has met with mixed results. Motion Titles has a different means of saving than does Classic Titles. See Save As New Title in the feature. That action is supposed to save the Motion Title to Motion Titles Custom under the Titles & Text Tab. The Classic Titles get saved to hard drive as prtl files.


            Please consider.
