BUG REPORT: In 12.1 Sequence markers are getting erased when a sequence is dragged into the Source Monitor the first time
When sequence markers are placed in a new sequence and that sequence is then dragged into the Source Monitor, all the sequence markers get deleted.
If markers are added again, and dragged into the source, then the markers stick. I've also tried dragging a sequence without any markers on it into Source, then adding markers and dragging again, and the markers remain.
This is a huge problem since we have several footage sequence that have already been marked up and we can't really use them in the Source monitor anymore unless we want to redo all the markers again.

This sequence markers issue was fixed in 2018.1.2 (July 16, 2018).
This stinks!!! It's screwing up my work flow. Please fix. Thanks.
This is a major problem! A Must Fix!

Hey I have had this problem. I found a temporary solution that has worked for me. Saved me whilst working on a documentary. (found this from @ppohio in a different post)
- Turn on "Copy Paste Includes Sequence Markers" under the Markers drop down in the Menu bar
- Open your sequence timeline, then copy everything
- Drop your sequence in the Source window, the markers will disappear
- Paste everything back to the timeline, the markers should be pasted back as well because of the new feature and then they will stay after that.

This is a huge issue for me. I've just lost half a day of on a show with a tight timeline, and this really messes up my workflow.
Lon Goldstein commented
This is a serious bug that can easily result in hours of lost work. I was able to recover most of my work (but lost other parts) by going to a backup of my project. This should be addressed immediately.

Staff report a fix in the next update: https://forums.adobe.com/message/10400831#10400831
Also, that thread has more complete info about workarounds suggested below.

Agreeing that this needs to be fixed, however after reading some comments here I'm noticing that if you first drag a timeline into the source monitor and start marking it up there, the markers don't disappear... Definitely buggy though!
Eric Pomert commented
What if you try this as a quick workaround: make a duplicate (not a copy) of the sequence with markers and use that duplicate in the source monitor. I would think that would leave your original sequence with markers intact.
Ed Wolski commented
I hope this will be fixed soon!
Jordan Bryan commented
Hopefully they can fix this soon. I use markers a lot in my editing workflow and I really need them to show up in the source monitor.
Laurent Bernier commented
Please fix this bug quickly. I edit with sequence open in source monitor and rely on markers to quickly spot moments. It does slow my pace by half...

I had this same bug with two different projects. Lost all markers from interviews when dragging the timeline to the Source Monitor. I found a different workaround, though:
I opened an Auto-Save version of my project, then dragged the affected timeline to my current project. Then I deleted the problematic timeline, effectively replacing it with the one from the Auto-Save project. I don't know if this workaround will work for everybody: I was lucky because I usually do all the markers one day... then next day I start cutting (where the bug appears). So I can clearly find an Auto-Save project from the previous day and then drag back the correct timeline.

thank you JHwang for the workaround - worked for me.
But not a long term solution I want to live with.

Literally cannot edit with this latest bug.
At the edge of reason with a workable 2018 version guys come on.
It's one step forward 2 steps back, every time.
Markers are solid gold and should not be disappearing when dragging them into the source window.
Yeah, seeing the same thing, and it sucks. Seems to be specifically happening with markers that have a range (in/out), not just single frame markers. Desperately need a fix for this ASAP.
Sequence markers are the issue, not clip markers. Also, messing around, I've found a possible work around. The markers seem to disappear only the first time the sequence is dragged into the source monitor. They stay afterwards. 12.1 has a new feature to Copy/Paste sequence markers, which according to Kev Monahan on the reddit thread I posted this in, could be causing interference.
Workaround - Duplicate you sequence with sequence markers. Drag your sequence into the source monitor, erasing all the markers. Copy / paste markers from your duplicated sequence onto the sequence where the markers were erased. Next time you drag the sequence into the monitor, the markers should remain.
When I open a sequence in the source monitor, all of the makers in the sequence disapear
Alex Campos commented
Exact same problem. I'm working with a lot of interview footage. I cannot work in 2018 if this bug is not fixed
Same problem! The markers disappear once the sequence is dragged into the source monitor. Plus, I don't even see my markers in my marker window anymore. Can't add marker out points or marker descriptions. Adobe, please fix this asap!
