Be able to copy effects on essential graphic clips
Right now if I copy an effect and paste it on another EG the type and words and everything else pastes. not only the effect.

@James S (Adobe), We're making text on screen to follow some ones speech, we have got all the AG layed out on the time line. Now i added stroke to one of the AG and i want to be able to paste said essential graphics stroke to all 30 titles after. Or i want to justify globaly all my titles to center. with out having to click on each one, then double click the text box, then click the **** center tool for all 60 titles. The fact that this was missed. and you're having trouble understand what we're asking. is crazy.

Maybe use the "styles" feature? You can find it under "align and transform" The only downside is it requires knowing what you're going to do before doing it. Silly planning :)
Would be nice if you could include align and transform within the style as well :D

I'm experiencing the same problem. I created one long subtitle (with no keyframes), then cut it up and changed the text according to the speech I'm transcribing. I now have around 70 individual clips of text, which should all share identical properties. For some bizarre reason I find the essential graphics coordinates have changed for pretty much every clip as I scrub through my timeline, each one progressively droping down the screen up to around 20 pixels!? A quick fix would be to copy the coordinates from a correctly positioned clip and past onto all the others. But, no, Premiere doesn't allow that, meaning I have to manually click to select the clip, then click to edit the text within essential graphics, then correct the coordinates FOR EVERY SINGLE CLIP. This is madness. Admittedly, I am using Premiere 2019 (13.1), but that's only to avoid multiple other bugs I'm trying to avoid in the later versions. Used to love Premiere. Now I hate it.

Any progress on this?

I'm not sure if this is what he's asking, but what I really would like to see in Essential Graphics, is the ability to paste the atributes from one EG clip to another.
For example: Right now I have about 40 clips with text that I use as titles for short, 15s videos i'm making. They all have different texts but have to be the same size.
I noticed that some of them are in the wrong size (scale size, not font size) and I wish I could just copy the correct size from the first one and paste the EG atributes for all the other ones, which, as far as I know, is not an option.
I know I can change and copy the atributes from the Effect Controls panel, but this is useless if the sizes within EG are not the same.
In brief:It's very hard to modify things "in bulk" with Essential Graphics, you're basically limited to a few options that are saved in Master Styles.
In that case, please help me understand just what it is you want to do.
It sounds like maybe you want to be able to paste certain attributes (like a layer's position or scale) including any associated keyframes from one graphic layer to another. Is that correct?
If you have transform keyframes for things like position or scale, you should be able to copy/paste those between layers. But you have to do your copying and pasting within the Effect Controls Panel (ECP) for it to work.

I want the same thing. Don't know what James is talking about. All James is doing is creating a custom effect and pasting it to another custom text. We want to be able to copy the pre-programmed "Essential Graphics" effects and paste them onto objects, text or other things that we create that we want to be animated in the same way. Currently if you copy and try to paste the pre-programed "Essential Graphics" and try to paste the attributes (in any way), nothing happens.
I am unable to repro this in Pr 12.1.1 x 10. Can you tell me a bit more about what you are doing?
Here is what I did:
1. Use the Text tool to make a new Graphic + Text Layer in the Program Mon (PM)/Timeline (TL)
2. Apply Gaussian blur by drag and dropping onto the Graphic in the TL
3. Make sire the graphic is selected, go to the Effect Controls Panel (ECP)
4. Find the gaussian blur (turn up its blurriness) right click > Copy
5. Repeat step 1 to make a new Graphic + Text
6. Back in the ECP > Right Click > Paste
The Gaussian blur is pasted in (with correct blur value) and not other Text or other effects are pasted in with it.(Edited by admin)
