Every time I save, close and reopen a Premiere Pro Project I find that my favourite folders have been reset?

 

Is this a feature or is there a way I can set my Favourites so I don't have keep doing it every time I open or re-use a project?

 

Thanks

I have the same problem. I remove the folders I don't like and add new favorites. I even save the Workspace, again. However, when I reopen Premiere Pro 2023, the old favorite folders are back.

I've just changed my favorites, saved the project using "save as", but when I opened it again the favorites are reset back to what they were. I'm obviously missing something simple.

Hi Ann

Thanks for responding and yes I can do that to set up my favourites, but when I close and reopen the Project it resets itself as per my screen shots. Favourites 2 shows it set up for 2023, Favourites 3 shows it reverted to 2019

I'm on Windows 10 by the way

I don't see anything out of the ordinary, or I am still not getting what you mean.

It changed from Folder "Harveywetdog 2023" back to Folder "Harveywetdog 2019" without me doing anything which is out of the ordinary compared with how it performed a few months ago.

Favorites are not project specific.

 

Your preference seems very reasonable - I had to test it because I thought it might be as you expected.

 

But Media Browser is a Panel by itself, and each project has its own Project Panel. So I think Favorites in Media Browser can only be specific to the PR version you are using.

 

If I open PR 2023 and, in Project One, I set Folder A as a favorite, it shows. I close Project One, Create Project Two, and set the favorite in Media Browser to be Folder B. When I close Project Two and reopen Project One, the favorite is Folder B.

 

If I close PR 2023 and open PR 2022, all my projects there have whatever Favorite I set last in PR 2022.

Thanks for your response Stan.

 

I am only working in PR 2023 (in fact I'm wondering if I lost something when I uninstalled PR 2022). The references to 2019 and 2023 in my screen shots are years in my video archive and not references to versions of PR.

 

If I open PR 2023 it opens with Folder X, Y & Z as favorites. I set Folder A as a favorite in place of Folder Z and it shows. I close Project One, create Project two and set the favorite in Media Browser to be Folder B. When I close Project Two and reopen Project One, the favorites have reverted to folder X, Y & Z. When I close Project One and reopen Project Two, the favorites have reverted to folder X, Y & Z.

 

I want it to work as you describe above but as I said at the beginning the favorites keep resetting for some reason.

By david@harveywetdog

 

It seems that setting Favorites feature is broken. If i open a project and set a folder as a Favorite and then save&close Premiere Pro and open the same project again the Favorite is gone...

I'd like to add to this.  Favorites within the Media Browser have always been an easy way to get to the folders I frequently use.  Now when I close and re-open PPro, the folder is there with no favorties in it.
