Hi there,

i really like the new captions workflow. But i can't figure out how to manage master styles.

 

I created a new style, edited it to my preferred settings, added a new caption field and suddenly all captions changed and looked like at the time when i created my master style. I had to create yet another master style that includes all my changes and they stayed after adding a new caption field. Got it!

 

I now have a master style i can't delete, edit or rename that i will never use.

 

I'd also like to export the master style so my colleages can use them.

 

I looked in the user folders if i can find the file where the master styles are stored but couldn't find it...

 

How can i get rid of the obsolete master style?

 

Stay save!

Timo

These text styles are saved with the Project. Look in the Project Panel. Right click and you can "clear" (delete) the style.   You can also right click and Export the text style (a .prtextstyle extension).   And in the Project Panel, right click -> Import and that file type is supported.   If you rename the style file outside PR, it is an independent style, but imports with the original name. You can change the name once in PR to something different.   I do not see a way to "save" a style once i...

It is not intuitive, you have to create your master style in the essential graphics tab.

This will cause an icon with the new style to appear in your project, you can change the name as you want ... 

then you can export it from the project to your desktop and then import it into a new project 🙂

Maybe there is a misunderstanding. My Premiere Pro is set to german, so i don't know how the functions are called in english. In the beta it was called master style, in the final it seems to be called track style.

 

What i did:

I have created track styles that i won't use again because once created there doesn't seem to be a way to edit or delete them.

 

I also don't know what you mean by "this will cause an icon [...] to appear in your project,". Where?

I do not see a way to "save" a style once it is updated. It will still sync back to the original.

 

Still playing with this...

 

The new caption help page is already up:

But this information is not there!
