Please DO NOT eliminate the Legacy Title creator in future updates.
Adobe tends to update with only the highly skilled pro in mind. But there are many advanced amateurs like me who DO NOT want to lose Legacy Title creator.

Hi Jason, thanks so much for taking the time to share your feedback. I would love to understand more about what has been difficult in learning/transitioning to Essential Graphics and what is daunting.
The idea behind it is that the new workspace/flow is familiar from other apps like Photoshop, and that you can do more with it than you could with the Legacy Titler. Here are a few documentation pages that I hope are helpful: https://helpx.adobe.com/premiere-pro/using/essential-graphics-panel.html
We can't comment specifically on future plans but please know that we are listening and trying to understand the friction in moving to new tools. Please share any more details you can around what has been difficult in transitioning.
I could really use a gradient fill option in the essential graphics; same as what is in "Legacy Title." Also, I love being able to add as many strokes as I like in Legacy Title. I can get pretty creative with it.
There are a few other Legacy Title text capabilities that do not exist in Essential Graphics, and I strongly feel that these should be carried over. Can't imagine why they would not be. Also, PLEASE do not get rid of Legacy Title.

Hi James Strawn. Does that mean you will KEEP Adobe Legacy Titles in addition to the new title tool?
Thank you for your response @Jason Ross
We understand your frustration.
Any further feedback from others? Especially for things you might need regularly which you can only do in the Old Titler.
I wish you could put the new titles in bins and cut with them like regular footage. Including setting in and out points to create them.

I have only been into creating videos for a few years now. And I have seen that Adobe way too often thinks that EVERY USER is a top notch expert that knows how to do absolutely everything that Premiere Pro can possibly offer. THAT'S THE PROBLEM. You guys at Adobe assume INCORRECTLY that every customer is as much an expert as you are. And we are NOT all experts like the Hollywood studios. And when you eliminate Legacy Title (which you PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE should NOT) you are saying to those who don't know how to use the new Title platform (like me who finds it dauntingly difficult), you are saying to those users "TOO BAD!!!" Apple did this same thing with iMovie several years ago, where they changed it entirely, rendering it completely un-useable. It is NOT an easy thing to learn all these new skillsets. And what if I simply LIKE the legacy title more than the new title tool? Why is that such a crime? What I cant afford to lose is that I have mastered the existing Legacy Title tool. Why would Adobe insist that progress can only be made by removing it from me? Why? When I call the support team, I cant get help because the support center is in Pakistan. They are truly NOT helpful. Please DO NOT eliminate the Legacy Title creator in future updates. Thanks for reading my comment.
Fair enough. Thanks for the feedback. Can you tell us a little more about what you can't afford to lose if we were to remove the Legacy Titler at some point? Perhaps some of those who voted this up could chime in as well.
