project manager bug - premiere 2020
In adobe premiere 2020, when I want to export project via project manager, from the source file which I have made several cuts (in & out) in the source monitor panel and drag it in bin, adobe premiere 2020 makes copy of source file as many as cuts I had made. For example, if I had cut a 1gb film into 3 parts it copies the file 3 times and the exported file size turns into 3gb. However in adobe premiere 2018, it only copies source file once and does not make several copy of it.

I'm having the same problem, "unknown error" while trying to export on project manager on timeline for a spot for a major brand to color grade in resolve. I've been trying for 6 hours, every possible work around, I do not understand your in/out points workaround Trent Happel, can this be done on an existing timeline?
This is not pro-grade software to have something so integral to basic post-production house workflow not working when you release an update. You need to either have color grading on par with resolve in the software or make sure your software plays nice and round-trips well with resolve when you do releases because literally every post-house and ad agency I've worked at does final color in resolve after editing in premiere.
I see that this "issue" was submitted for investigation over a month ago and this is still going on?

Project Manager isn't working correctly in Premiere 2020. Have tried it with several different projects and I get an "unknown error" message repeatedly. Is this a known bug that you are working to resolve? Please advise.

Thank your reporting this. This issue has been reproduced and has been submitted for investigation.
Until this is fixed, a possible workaround is to not drag the In/Out sections to the Project panel. Instead, set your In/Out in the Source Monitor and drag that to the Timeline Sequence (does not create additional instances in Project panel). I tried this and it created only one copied file after running Collect Files and Copy to New Location in the Project Manager.
I know it does not help you for your existing Projects and may differ from your desired workflow, but might help going forward until this issue can be addressed.
