Chapter 9. The New Abobe Title Designer > Working with Existing Text

Working with Existing Text

There are many times during the course of a project where you need to modify or completely change a text segment that has already been edited into your timeline. One way to fix this is to just create a completely new title and edit it into your timeline. But this is not the best use of your time. The ideal way to alter a single existing text segment is to simply double-click that segment in your timeline. The Adobe Title Designer window opens with that text in editable mode. You now have full advantage of the Adobe Title Designer to make whatever changes are necessary. After you make your alterations, you have two choices. You can choose either Save or Save As on the File menu. The difference is that the Save feature overwrites the existing version of that text file, completely changing it in the timeline where you originally selected that text segment (where you double-clicked it), changing it everywhere else in the timeline where you used that text, and changing the original text source clip. This is good if you want to make these types of changes globally, everywhere that clip was used.

If you do not want to change the original clip everywhere, I recommend selecting the Save As feature. Selecting Save As opens the dialog box, allowing you to rename the file with the changes you have made as well as select the location for this new file on your hard drive. After you click the Save button, you notice that the new text clip with the new filename appears in your bin (or the last bin that was selected). Notice that all uses of the original text file have remained intact. Nothing has changed there. You still need to re-edit the new file into your timeline. Because you chose to rename the file, Premiere does not write over the original file that was previously edited into your timeline.
