I have premiere elements 2020 and when I add a text (example Typography07 ), I disable background, add text, and BOOM. Looks great! However, I have to add lots of text so I copy and paste this in my timeline, but the two are LINKED??? Why? Is there a way I can copy and paste these and just change the text on one without it affecting the other?
What is happening:
Insert typography07, edit background, edit text.
Copy typography07, edit text, now original text block has also been changed.
To confirm, I changed the name of the text block to "typography111" then the other "copied" one also has its name changed to "typography111".
It would be really annoying if I have to manually add and edit all the settings for each text block instead of being able to copy one that I've done and just change the text.

Copying a title produces a clone. Change one title and you change another.
As I show you in my books, to create an independent duplicate right-click on the title in the Project Assets panel and select Duplicate. This duplicates the title's style and graphics but does not link the two titles together.
YOU ARE A LEGEND
I am having the same problem. Using the latest version of Premiere, I went into the Bin: Titles, right clicked, selected Duplicate, changed the name then dragged into my new scene. I changed the title, and it changed the slide I duplicated from as well. Deleted and tried again, same thing. Is there a glitch in the system? I did exactly what you said, it made a copy, but it's still linked to the source I duplicated it from. Adobe Premiere is so complex, it really doesn't seem to be all that user friendly from my experience learning it over the last month. ugh. sigh
Well done Steve, it worked for me. This was a major hangup for me (probably everyone else as well) crazy on Adobe's behalf as this is very basic requirements copy and paste text with formatting.
Oh forgot to mention I purchased your book as well for PE 2020 but missed this bit. I will have to search it out... 🙂
Can you tell me which version of Premiere you have? Is it on PC? I am working on Mac Premiere Element 2021 and it still doesn't work for me after the duplicate.
In my experience, duplicating a title in the Project Assets panel creates a separate duplicate in every version of the program, on both Macs and PCs.
I have Premiere Elements 2021 on windows and when I duplicate my text, any changes I make STILL carries over to other texts. This is really frustrating for someone who's trying to edit captions into a video. Is there any solution please?
My tutorial shows you step by step how to much this work.
Thanks for the suggestion Steve. I have both a pan-and-zoom and fade in/out effect on my titles, and I'd like to get a duplicate with these effects also duplicated. The version I get from the project assets - duplicate function doesn't have these effects applied.
Having just spent 20 minutes trying to get the pan-and-zoom effect to match exactly on my first duplicated title, trying to replicate the specific effect isn't going to work for the 20+ matching titles I need.
Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for your help.
You won't get keyframes by duplicating a title since keyframing is added on the timeline. So you need to duplicating keyframing by copying and pasting from clips on the timeline.
Right-click on the clip whose keyframing you want to copy and select Copy. Right click on the clip or clips you want to add these animations to and select Paste Effects and Adjustments.
