Can't copy-paste in same video and change text

Hi, a question about copy-paste text in Adobe Premier Elements 2021. When I add text to my video and want to copy-past the same type of color, size and font, I can not change the text. If I do, I will also change previous text that I copied and pasted from. Why do I have to start over with a new text entry, create a new color, choose a new font and more instead of just copy-paste-change the new text?

Any solution?

Best regards

Jan Jansson

This is because you're copying (cloning) the title rather than duplicating it.

 

As I show you in my book, you should instead right-click on the title in the Project Assets panel and select Duplicate. This will create an independent copy of the title that you can edit without affecting the original.

Nope. It definitely works. Make sure you are right-clicking on the title in the Project Assets panel and selecting the Duplicate option. Then add the duplicate to your timeline and you'll be able to edit it separate from the original.

Steve is right.  It works very well to duplicate titles in the Assets panel.  Then drag the copies to the timeline where you can change the text in each copy.
