    problems renaming titles

      Ive created a title, copied and pasted it. Then I edit the title and rename it, but it wont let me. I right-click on the title, but it will not let me rename it.

      any ideas?

      thanks.

          If you want a new instance of a Title. Open it then 'Create Title Based on that one. (Menu Bar>Title>Options) - This gives you the option to rename it.

          If you edit a title it automatically saves it self and updates it self on the timeline.

            jf1020,

            In either the Timeline, or the Project Panel, Dbl-click on the Title that you want to base your new Title on. This will Open the Titler. In earlier versions of PP, there was a little square with a "T" in it, in the upper left. Click that, and you will receive a dialog box to name the Title (based on the Open Title). Once you apply a name and OK, you will have the old Title in the Titler Panel. Change as is necessary.

            The Title>Based On is for when you have Saved a Title. If you only have one, that you wish to base another on, the box w/ T icon is the way you want to go. If CS4 has changed the icon, or the location, F1 should point you in the right direction.

              This is a known issue in CS4. You need to widen your project panel before it will allow you to rename clips.

                Hi All, thanks for the tips. I have been using the "Duplicate" function under the "Edit" menu. I duplicate a title, rename it, open it and make the changes. This seems to work well for me. Though it does take a little pre planning.

                On CS4 the "T" icon is visable in the top left corner of the panel that has the work area. Just below the name of the title.

                By the way, does anyone know where the title files are stored? I can't seem to find them as individual files ... or are they bundled/buried with the project file?

                  Al,

                  Unless things have changed, the Titles are stored in the Project, unless you save as a Template. Then they are in Doc & Settings\ [User Name]\My Documents\Adobe\Premiere Pro\[Version Number]\Templates.

                    You can also export the title to a separate title file from the project panel if you want to use the title in another project.

                      Hi Bill and Eddie, Thanks. I did a file search on all my HDs and couldn't find them. As I suspected, they become part of the project. In a way I suppose this is good since in PPRo 2 the .prtl files clogged my projects folder.

                      Have a grand week gentlemen,

                        Even in 2.0, the titles are a part of the project, not separate files.

                          It was about the time that Premiere went from the Title Deko module, that I think they became embedded. Do not recall which version that was.

                            Hi Jim, <br /><br />I respectfully disagree with you. I just upgraded from PPro 2 to CS4. The .prtl files are in the same folder as the .prproj files. Well, at least that is the way they are on my system.<br /><br />Bill,<br /><br />If my ancient memory serves me, Title Deko existed in the version 1 or perhaps as late as version 1.5. I was glad to see it disappear in version 2.<br /><br />I hope you guys are staying warm ... it was 12 degrees this morning.<br />    AL<br /><br />PS. Will send screen shot of my folder upon request ...<g>

                              No, TitleDeko did come with Premiere 6.0 but in v6,5 Premiere got its own title tool (basically the same as now).

                              In PPro 1.5 the .prlt files could be saved wherever you wanted, but was not embedded in the project file.

                                I still use 2.0 every day. Titles are not created separately. You can do so manually, but unless you do, they are saved only within the project file.

                                  Al,

                                  I just took off my sweatshirt, as it hit high 60's up top and about 55F on the pool deck.

                                  Interesting about the title file placement in CS4.

                                  DAG,

                                  Your comment on 6.0 - 6.5 rings a bell with me. Back when I was looking into an old 6.5 Project, I read a bunch of reviews and white papers from Adobe, trying to get answers to another question. It seemed that, because of Title Deko, the forward compatibility of Projects between versions was broken. No older tiles would import.

                                  Jim,

                                  I'm with you on this, unless I Save my Titles. Mine are in Doc&Settings\\\\Templates
