I am am having this issue for a couple of months now, but I finally decided to be vocal about it. I am working on a project with several sequences, and I like to organize those into a folder. However, the premiere doesn't let me move certain sequences into bins, doesn't matter which bin is.
In this picture, I am trying to move the sequence SizzleReel_v7 to the folder 03. SEQUENCE, but premiere doesn't let me.
I noticed the same issue on this post here, but it was not solved at all, the answer there is wrong and doesn't work.
I really need a solution for this issue and I would like Adobe or someone out there to help me fix this.
System: macOS Cataline 10.15.6
Computer: iMac 2019 - 3.6 GHz 8-Core Intel Core i9
Try resetting the preferences:
If that doesn't work, try resetting the Workspaces:
Reset a workspace
Reset the current workspace to return to its original, saved layout of panels.
1. Do one of the following:
• Click the Workspace menu icon and select Reset to Saved Layout.
• Choose Window > Workspace > Reset to Saved Layout.
I reset the preferences and it didn't work. Also, I deleted the Media Cashe, which also didn't work. Resetting the workspace didn't work also. Sorry, none of the options had any effect on it. What else do you think could be?
Try creating a new project and import the old one into it.
Thanks for the input. The only option that kind of worked was to select the sequence, right click, and select NEW BIN FROM SELECTION.
I won't be creating a new project as I am editing an entire TV Show here. It's not a YouTube video. Adobe Premiere is a professional software, and I don't think it is acceptable to be importing sequences to new projects. Also, it would take me days to do that.
However, as I said, using NEW BIN FROM SELECTION seems to do the trick.
Anyway, I appreciate your help.
Can you copy and paste to the new bin?
Resetting the layout fixed this for me. Numerous Premiere restarts and computer restarts over the course of a week - no changes. I changed the layout, now I can drag and organize my project window as I see fit. Thank you.
Bumping this. I'm having this issue right now working on a feature doc. Very frusterating when trying to keep an organized project structure.
Which version of Premiere? There was one back one or two that did this, you had to be in List view to move things.
The current 14.7 version shouldn't do this. We hope.
I know this is an old post, but I found this as I am troubleshooting the same issue. For me, it has to do with dynamically linked comps. For sequences that do not have any dynamiclly linked comps, I am able to move those. The issue starts with the sequences that have linked comps to After Effects. If I delete them out of my sequence, I can then move the sequence.
I do not know the solution though.
I'm having the same problem.
Working on Mac OS 12.4. and Premiere 22.5
Please tell us your system specs: amount of RAM, Hardware specs including graphics card and your source properties and sequence settings. A recent post said the problem was with sequences with linked AE comps in their timeline. Is this true for you?
Same problem for me. Reset layout, imported into a new project, made sure all files were linked, could cut but couldn't paste, could copy but not paste. Cleared Cache, cleared preferences, it all worked a week ago when I last opened the project.
Windows 11 Pro 21H2 Build 22000.832
Ryzen 9 3950x 16-Core 64GB RAM
Premiere Pro 22.5.0
I've had this problem for ages.
I've tried various point releases in Premiere 23, 24, and recent Betas across a few Mac OS (currently 13.6). I have long had the same issue.
I cannot copy/paste OR drag any sequence that contains dynamically linked AE comps into another bin. Organization is really difficult with this bug. I have searched high and low for answers and none seem to exsist.
I've tried all of the reset prefs, cache, layouts, etc. None of it changes anything.
