Implementing the "old" text-tool/expanding the text-tool
Please consider implementing the older, extensive text-tool into the new regular text tool, so that it can be operated/activated with shortcuts.
The old Tool was quite usable, with ist ability to save presets and work on the text with Colors, textures etc. It has a lot of room to Play around in. Sometimes it even eliminated the Need to Change to AE. Still, both worked nicely together.
Though it still can be accessed, it is now hidden somewhere in the menus. If it could be actrivated with a shortcut, it would make the workflow much faster and untuitive.
Thanks for Setting up UserVoice!
Hey @brownylewis. Thanks for your response.
I feel like there are some important features missing in the Essential Graphic tabs. Inner- and outer lines, e.g. Textures are very important, too, as part of a customized font/title. Also Glow, which, like all he aforementioned, could also be set up with backgrounds and shadows and so much more.
One of the advantages for this tool was that very elaborate fonts/styles could be created without the need to edit the text in AE as well. So that in AE, one could focus on backgrounds and visual motion graphics, while having the Text edited in Premiere. The Essential graphics tool is great especially for subtitles. However, I'm missing the functionality of the classic text tool.

Hi there - thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts with us! I'd love to know more about what features of the Legacy Titler ("old text-tool") you are missing.
With the new Essential Graphics panel, Type tool, and shape tools in Premiere Pro, you can adjust the appearance and color of text and shapes (textures are not currently supported though), animate them, set up responsive design features that let you preserve animations and spatial relationships between elements. You can export graphics you design in Premiere Pro as Motion Graphics templates, which you can use like title presets across projects. You can also set up Master Styles for a particular project and parent individual text layers or entire graphics to a style. You can also copy/paste graphics created in Premiere Pro into After Effects and take them to the next level.
Have you tried the Essential Graphics panel and Motion Graphics templates? If not - here are some links to get you started: https://helpx.adobe.com/premiere-pro/using/essential-graphics-panel.html
If you have tried it and found it lacking, what do you think is still missing from the Legacy Titler?
