Copy & Paste WITHOUT link between parent/child

I'm using Shapes in a Title video object. It took me a long time to format these shapes the way I want them. I need to re-use the shapes many times throughout my video. So, I copy/paste the Title video segment into a new Title video segment. 

 

Problem - whenever you copy Shapes in a Title, and Paste to a new title, ANY change to EITHER segment affects BOTH segments. There is some connection between the original and the pasted segments, so anything that affects one affects them both. 

 

  I understand for what I need that Captivate would be a better application for me. That being said, I could use Premiere Elements if it didn't have these rridiculously stupid limitations. I can't think of any other application where modifying a child object goes back and corrupts the original.

You can also right-click on a title in the Project Assets panel and select Duplicate (not Copy), as I show you in my book.
