Captions, Graphics & Titles woes
I'm not sure what is happening in the Backround at Adobe Universe. Title Tool in Premiere Pro was alsways a Kind of "Kindergarten" playground for developers and they never got it right. Now we have "Graphics" and some "Leagcy Title". I guess that this time developers and engineers at Adobe failed again to get this thing right. Working with Captions (Tool) is a nightmare failing to provide the right toolset and editing capabilities (Font editing, Spacing and so on), so this one is counting out absolutely.
Heading over to the Graphics section, trying out to create captions there. Starting with the "Bold Web Caption" Template -> Edit ... Looking darn good at first sight. Created a "Master Style" to be able to change parameters for all Graphic Clips in the Timeline later if client changes his mind, which he will do for sure. So, done finishing up with my Graphics Clips, client changes his mind and he wants me to change fonts and size and a bit of other parameters. I was so sure that this will become a walk in the park thinking I was smart enough by creating a Master Style and change all clips by the snap of a finger. I should have known that Adobe Engineers failed again to make this less pain in the *. Nothing changes for the following clips by making changes to the Master Style. NOTHING. Also I eventually found out that any changes I make in the Effect Controls for a Graphics Clip (Motion, Size, etc.) and trying to Copy/Paste Attributes to the rest of the clips in the timeline NOTHING happens at all. Are you guys kidding us? Caption sucks, Legacy Title is rather a mere joke than a professional tool and the shiny new Graphics Tools is totally screwed. This is just the tip of the Iceberg from what I have found below the waterline in PR CC 2019. I really have no Idea what you guys are doing all day pushing such half baked software to the paying users? Are you selling green Bananas? Twenty years now in this Business working with Adobe Products, I've been walking trough some serious st with Adobe Software and there seems no end to it. Adobe software marketing is tremendous. Adobe software engineering is a crying child. Nobody is asking for perfection, but will you ever make it right and get at least close to it?
Re: And: what do you mean by: " did you press "Push to Master Style" from the project."?
Sorry. That was a typing error. I meant to say, "... from the EGP" (EGP = Essential Graphics Panel)
In the EGP, with a text layer selected, next to the Master Styles pulldown, there is an up arrow and a down arrow. The Up arrow is "Push To Master Style". If you modify a child layer, the pulldown says, 'Text Style Name <modified>, you press that Up arrow and it will push those changed to the parent style and ripple to all siblings. If nothing happens at that point, it makes me think that you did not make associate you other text layers with the same Master Text Style.
The help video link I copied was just one I happen to have viewed myself. There are many other resources, including Adobe help articles. Beyond that, I would ask you to keep your tone civil and your comments constructive. I am not an official help representative. I am mainly here as a fellow user, prioritizing user requests. When requests turn into rants they end up becoming closed as un-actionable or possibly deleted.
James, greatly appreciate your efforts to get this thing sorted.
Insane enough to find the appropriate information source via third party link and not on Adobe Help source, but that workflow does not get me anywhere.
Let me get the initial problem explained:
I already created a bunch of subs in my timeline.
As I wrote before, my client changed his freaking mind and I need to change the parameter of already created "Graphic" subs in my timeline. With no avail.
If I change my "Mother" sub, there is no such change to all of the "Child" subs that I have created already.
So there is no connection in between the "Master Syle" and the duplicates or copies of the already created 100+ subs in the timeline!?
And: what do you meand by: " did you press "Push to Master Style" from the project."?
I don't get it.
And to be honest, this is BULL if you ask me.
V 13.01.1 (Build 13). Same **** as it ever was whenever it comes to productivity.
What's next? Premiere Pro CC Classic vs. Premiere CC for new age Morons? Same as for Lightroom. Maybe After Effects next? One-click Motion Graphics for Monkeys?
Get a life Adobe folks. You are ruining creativity with you bogus ideas. ANY of your software is just outdated and built upon old architecture with NO consistency. Adobe DC anyone? Editing PDFs is such a pain ********** but who really cares about a **** brand new shiny interface if you can't actually use it as you want?
PS, AI, ID, AE ... and the list goes on.
Too much money, arrogance and ignorance involved. Like politicians having no clue about who people are and what people rally need.
Twenty ******* years of trying to get along with adobe software. What's left?: Old Wine in new Bottles.
Sorry for you frustration. Regarding, "Nothing changes for the following clips by making changes to the Master Style"
After changing a Text Layer which is the child of a text style in the project, did you press "Push to Master Style" from the project. That is when the style change will save to the parent and ripple out to all assigned siblings.
For more info, hopefully this will help:
