Word wrap

I've been using Premiere Pro for some time now but can't find the word wrap function for titles. What makes this more complicated is that there are plenty of pointers online to finding it in older versions but nothing on how to enable it in CC 2017.

Does anyone have a simple explanation for doing this? I have not been able to find it no matter how many google searches I've done.

Thanks in advance.

Yes, ENTER is great but I was looking for actual word wrapping within sat the title safe boundary or a selected area. When I cut and paste text into Premiere I always have to go through the tedious process of editing it. I thought the previos versions had a word wrap option but can't find any instructions for the newest version.

HOW TO WORDWRAP IN PREMIERE PRO 2018


GOTO File / New / Legacy Title


When Legacy opens up you can use the AreaTypeTool on the left. You simply left click hold and drag a box over the video. Paste within your text and it will word wrap. If it is too large, simply adjust the font size down and the rest of the text will appear.

It's actually very simple, although I didn't find any reasonable hint for that anywhere. It was just try and miss discovery for me You just need to select Type tool and instead of clicking the place you want your title to start with, just hold left-click and drag your pointer to create the text box. Then just paste the text there. It will auto-wrap.

In recent versions Adobe integrated multiple funcionalities into single tools, which sounds reasonable and more straightforward, but for us - who got used to older versions - it may be confusing a bit at times.

Then how do you resize and re-wrap that text box after that?

Switch from the Text tool to the selection tool and click down and drag on the adjustment boxes:

That only scales the whole thing as a locked graphic, not the size of the box for reflowing/rewrapping the text. I tried all kinds of modifyer keys, too -- shift, ctrl, sh+ctrl, ctrl+alt+del...

Gah! 90s flashbacks! Thanks for the suggestions though! I found this convoluted workaround elsewhere:

But the developers and UI designers really need to get their act together on Text.

KilloEchoVictor,

 

I have no trouble whatever re-wrapping a block of text in a text block. It works perfectly ... but you have to create a text block.

 

The behavior you're describing is what you get when you simply click with the T tool to start a line of text, or by using the "new text" option in the EGP's Edit tab.

So ...

  • hit the T key to go into Text mode;
  • Click-drag diagonally on the Program monitor to create a box;
  • Type your text inside the box;
  • Click on a different panel to get away from the Program monitor having "focus";
  • Hit V to go to the Selection tool;
  • Use the box corners and mid-side points to resize the text block.

Thanks. The annoyance is the distinction between clicking and dragging a text bloxk in the first place. There is NO REASON why such a distinctoin should exist, let alone not be convertible once created one way or the other. Thanks for the procedure, it worked perfectly when I REDID ALL MY TEXT.

Actually ... there are many situations where the two different types of working are useful. So the reason both exist is that for some users each is crucial. It gives options.

 

For example, if you're doing scrolling credits, you do not want to use a text box. Period. You use the 'enter' key to set new lines. Perhaps a hundred times or more.

I get that. Options. So why not use the Option key? It seems to me that (especially with Adobe's penchant for hiding UI functionality) the change in modaltiy between scaling and resizing/reflowing could be done temporarily with a modifier key while dragging a control point rather than have it be arbitrarily, invisibily, and permanently locked at creation time.

I see that they've made another big release that fixes bugs that go back years. I hope this was addressed as well...

Thanks again for your input.
