I'm just trying to find a way to paste attributes from one text clip to multiple others. With the old tool I've have saved a preset style. Any ideas?
To get running with the new EGP, which works very differently than we're all used to, I recommend watching some tutorials ...
First, by James Strawn, one of the actual engineers on the project ...
Then reTooled.net ...
And also ...
Between them, they seem to cover most things.
Thanks Neil - I hadn't even SEEN the EG window...tutorials were very helpful!
Hi Neil, thanks for those links. But I couldn't find in those videos what I am looking for. Is there a way to copy and paste Essential Graphics parameters such as justify and position from one clip to another?
I have loads of titles on a video made with the new text tool. They all have different text but are positioned in the same place on screen, justified right in lower right corner. The client has asked that they all be moved to lower left corner. If I try to do this from the Effect Controls window it doesn't work. I have to justify left and position left in the Essential Graphics window. But can I copy and paste those setting to another title. At the moment I am changing each title manually which takes for ever when there are so many of them.
I should add I have tried creating a Master Style but that only changes the justification not the position.
I have sort of the same question. My impression when first using the Essential Graphics panel to make Master Styles was that Align and Transform properties were part of the style ...
Am I correct in now thinking only the Text and Appearance sections are saved/included in a Master Style?
Yes ... that style thing is for type style & appearance.
It would be great to have paragraph styles also, and for that ... it's still the good ol' Feature request form ... and btw, like you, I'd rather look through a written like ... oh, manual type thing, you know? ... than watch video tuts.

(They never respond to postings, but all filed reports are collated and distributed to all relevant managerial types, so they are seen.)
I have a post in here somewhere about wanting paragraph styles but I'd settle for leading that only affected intra-paragraph lines rather than also changing the paragraph spacing. My theory is it really isn't affecting paragraph spacing but there's something hinky with the paragraph breaks so that they're all more like manual line breaks so the leading is, in fact, only affecting lines but all the lines are one big paragraph whether you press Enter/Return or not.
Using Premiere Pro 12.0 and I do not see anywhere to save text styles.
In the EGP control panel, Edit mode, it's the "Master Styles" line. Create a new Master Style.
Ugh. I hate video tutorials. I make them for a living but I would rather waste an hour searching for something I can read than sit through a 3-4 minute video.
I found a quick and easy way to handle this. I ran into an issue myself where I added subtitles for a 2 minute piece, but didn't tweak the settings for drop shadow/color/etc. until AFTER I created them all (like a dummy).
What I found in CC2019, was that within the Essential Graphics panel there is a "Master Styles" section, and I was able to save a style there. It produced a Master Styles item in Project Folder.
I was then able to select all the text layers in my timeline, then I simple dragged the style from project bin and held down the Option key (mac) and dropped it on any of the text layers. Voila, the same treatment applied to all!
Thank you so much! This is exactly what I needed.
Glad it was helpful! Go make some cool stuff!!
