Copy/paste with title cards broken

Hi guys, longtime listener first-time caller.

 

I'm a documentary editor and heavily use copy/paste in my timelines, always saving versions of ideas in different places, trying different lines, etc. My timelines are huge and my projects are huge.

 

I use title cards resting above clips as sort of organizational post-it notes for my selects ("this is great, don't forget", "this bit is the ending", "put Freebird under this and we'll win the Oscar").

 

However, the last few versions of Premiere have a game-breaking, slit-your-wrists-level bug, where if you select a big chunk of timeline that includes title cards and COPY, it won't paste. You can copy&paste big swaths of timeline WITHOUT title cards per usual, but the moment you add a single title card, it won't paste.

 

I've investigated this somewhat and found that you can copy ONE clip (video and internal audio) with ONE title card and it will paste. Two title cards? No. Two hundred clips and one title card? No. Anything more than 1 clip and one title card, won't paste.

 

Please fix this. I'll bake you a pie 😮

When you say 'title cards' you mean essential graphics?

 

If that's what you mean, I just tried it in Windows 23H2 with PP 24.4.1 and it seems OK

As a test: Create a new test project. Add one clip and drag it to the new icon. I assume by "I use title cards resting above clips," as MyerPJ says, you use the Type tool to type a bit of text on the track above. So there is a clip on V1 and a Title on V2. Is that correct? So add that. Then drag select everything, copy, click in the timeline after everything, and paste.

 

Does that work? If not, that is very odd. If so, then we can troubleshoot from there.

Hi team,

 

MyerPj, yes, I mean typing text via essential graphics.

 

Stan Jones, yes, a new blank project with one clip, on a new timeline, with the clip on V1 and the title on V2 copy/pastes just fine.

 

However, when I bring in even a second clip, and put a second new title atop it, copy/paste bugs out. What I get when I paste is only the *first* title card, not the two clips+two title card combo.

 

I'm using the Apple Silicoln version of premiere and wondered if it was a bug with the Metal rendering engine (it must be). The bug stills persists in the Intel version though 😞

Thanks, Julian.

 

And yes, I am on Win 10, and this is not a direct test of any issue on Macs. But this is pretty common copy/paste behavior, and I don't recall other reports of it.

 

I extended the test by putting a second clip (and text above it) on the same tracks, and on 2 tracks above the original offset, and 2 tracks above offset.

 

It still coy/pastes correctly.

 

Screenshot of what you are seeing?
