Need to be able to italicize just a single word instead of the entire sentence in a caption
In PPro 2021, italicizing a caption or subtitle is an all-or-nothing thing.
If I click the "Faux Italic" button, the entire line is italicized. I can't italicize just a single word.

Is it possible to pseudo italicize a word without using the Faux Italic button?
I need to have control over the *****. In the legacy title tool it was literally called ***** and I could adjust it all I wanted too. The Faux Italic button doesn't ***** the text far enough.
I need this to be saved as a preset embedded in the text so that if I change the text, the ***** doesn't go away or rely on a different effect being applied after.
The font I have to use doesn't have an Italics option either.
Attached is an image from the legacy titler that shows what I need.
Any help is appreciated!

This is the answer I was looking for! It works in the program monitor! :). (Not in the captions window.)
Hi Dacia - that solution may work in a single case, but not when working with large files with multiple instances of single word italics. There's no reason Premiere Pro shouldn't support this feature - it is pretty standard for foreign language translations amongst other things. Please see my post here: https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911233-premiere-pro/suggestions/44065782-single-word-italics-in-captions

Ah! You are indeed correct. I had not thought to try that. I was highlighting the word in the caption text panel on the left, not via the text in the program monitor.
You can do this by selecting the single word in the Program Monitor, and then use the Essential Graphics panel to add the italics.
