    Thank you for taking the time to submit your ideas. I'm seeing two different requests here, so let me address each one separately:

    Request 1: Separate width and height sliders for text background.
    There is a way to get what you want using a pinned shape behind your regular essential graphics text, but that won't work for captions text. So it sounds like what you want is some new UI specifically for backgrounds behind captions. I can't make any promises about future features, but I'll do what I can to make sure the Captions team knows about this request at least.

    Request 2: Export your own subtitle styles.
    Once you have your Captions text looking the way you want, then you can make a Text Style out of it and export that as a .prtextstyle file. I've attached an image to help you see how to do that.

    Thank you for taking the time to submit your idea. It's especially good to hear about that specific part of your workflow where you're trying to get rounder corners AND a shadow on the same shape.

    Thank you for your feedback. One thing I'd like to clarify for you is that you can assign shortcuts for styles like Faux Bold and Faux Italic. The attached screenshot shows how I assigned Shift + B as the shortcut for Faux Bold.

    Granted, this is not the same as choosing a Font Style for Bold. But many fonts don't have such styles available, so having a shortcut to choose Font Style Bold would not do anything in those cases.

    Also, Regarding this: being able again to move the text "box" with arrow keys again (as with legacy titles) would be much appreciated

    There are already assigned keyboard commands for nudging Layers around in the Program Monitor. For example, on mac, Shift + Cmd + Right Arrow nudges the selected object to the right by five.

    OK thank you for verifying that for me, Anthony.

    Thank you for your suggestion. Can you tell us a little more about your specific use case(s)? What kind of titles or other graphics are you designing in PrPro projects which use number and/or bullet lists?

    As a workaround for now, are you able to copy a list like that from an app like Word and paste it into a Text layer in Pr and have it respect the formatting in an acceptable way? I tried it in 12.1 and it looked OK to me.

    Hi Ann, thanks as always for your contributions toward making Pr a great app.

    I just tried the Bevel Alpha feature on a Pr Graphic Text Layer and it works as expected there. I don't recall exactly why and when certain effects got moved into an Obsolete bin in the Effects panel, but deprecation of them is not anything we're planning to do here on the Essential Graphics team. I can't speak for the core Pr product team though. That might be a good request to make at the top level of the PrPro section of this adobe-video uservoice site, specifically:
    https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911233-premiere-pro

    In the meantime, you might play around with gradients for text and multiple shadows (both new in the past few releases) to see if you can get some interesting results that way. It won't look the same as that old Bevel effect, but at least you'll know what your other options are.

    Thank you for taking the time to send these suggestions to us. In regards to the first request, there are already a couple of ways that you can remove your factory mogrts from your local system.

    The first way is to delete them from within the Essential Graphics Panel's Browse tab. Make sure Local Templates Folder is checked on and then just right click on a mogrt, or a selected set of them, and choose Delete.

    The second way is through the Common > Motion Graphics Templates which you have already found on your system. Delete any mogrt you want gone but DON'T DELETE the text files in there which have names like PrMogrtInstall13-0-0.txt. As long as those .txt files remain, the missing factory mogrts won't re-install when PrPro or Ae is launched. If you ever want your Pr and/or Ae factory mogrts back, simply delete the corresponding .txt files and the factory mogrts will re-install the next time you launch the app.

    Thank you for taking the time to submit this, James.

    You will be happy to know that nudging shortcuts are already available for Essential Graphics in PrPro. To use them, you just need to have one or more layers selected and have either the Program Monitor or Essential Graphics panel in view, the press one of the existing Keyboard shortcuts for nudge (like Ctrl/Cmd + right arrow). I have attached a visual showing the existing KBS command for nudging of Graphics layers. Like any Keyboard Shortcuts, the commands can be remapped to fit your liking inside the Keyboard Shortcuts dialog.

    Thank you for taking the time to post this, Douglas. I watched the video (twice) and I think I understand what's limiting you even though it was in Portuguese. I see that your captions (subtitle format) text is not fitting as well as it does when you use regular Pr Text inside a graphic. I also see that the invisible bumpers near the outer edge of the Program Monitor are keeping you from moving your text exactly where you want it. Those bumpers are there to keep peoples text within a safe area inside the Program Monitor, but I think I understand why they are overly limiting in your case.

    I'm going to move this thread into the Captions bucket at this time and let folks in that group know about it so they can see and evaluate your request within the context of that team.

    @Markus Thank you for your submission. While Pr's Essential graphics tools do not have a depth feature for strokes, I was able to set up a Text appearance very much like what you showed in your screenshot using the Shadow feature with no blur or distance. Here is what that looks like compared to a Legacy Title using an outer stroke with depth.

    I saw at least two requests in here for Text Gradients and a replacement for the Legacy Titler's "Sheen" feature. I'm happy to announce the implementation of Text Gradients as of the latest public release of PrPro 15.2. Please try it out when you can and let us know what you think.

    For information about how to apply Text Gradients as well as a couple of short how-to videos, go to this link:
    https://helpx.adobe.com/premiere-pro/using/text-gradient.ug.html

    @Trish Meyer Drop Shadow is already supported for Shapes using the latest public version of Pr. The attached image shows you how to enable Shadow for a Shape. Is there some other functionality you need besides that?

    An error occurred while saving the comment

    Thank you all for taking the time to contribute here. The feature request I submitted some time ago is still there and we have implemented some improvements but not all of them yet. We understand that the Legacy Titler cannot go away if there are still bug gaps in a lot of users' workflows. For now, let me clarify some things to make sure you understand you available options right now.

    (1) Gradients - gradients for Shape layers are already possible with Pr graphics. This includes multiple stops, angle control and opacity gradients. Simply select a shape, click on Fill in the EGP, and then use the Gradient fill pulldown in the upper left of the Color Picker. You will then see UI that will let you set Color and Transparency stops as well as a start, end and mid point for your gradient.

    (2) Layers with texture fill - textured fill is possible by means of our EGP masking feature. Put an image (still or video) under your Text (or other) Layers as a Clip Layer in the EGP. Select the top Layer and then check on Mask with Text (or Mask with Shape) and you will now have a layer that has a textured fill. (see attached screenshot) Put the two layers inside a Group in the EGP and the masking will not affect layers outside that Group.

    Note; You can make your own Gradient for Text by using the same basic steps I just described for Texture fill. Just use a Shape with a Gradient fill as your underlying Layer instead of a clip Layer.

    These are all good requests, thanks for sending them to us. Most of these we've heard from our Japanese community and other users before, but to be sure we have them covered can you clarify some things?

    (1) Gradients - gradients for Shape layers are already possible with Pr graphics. Simply select a shape, click on Fill in the EGP, and then use the Gradient fill pulldown in the upper left of the Color Picker. You will then see UI that will let you set Color and Transparency stops as well as a start, end and mid point for your gradient.
    (2) Scene features - what do you mean by this? Please explain, with a screenshot if needed.
    (3) Multi shadows - can you please send me a real world sample of some titles with Multi Shadows? We recently added multiple strokes so I'm not sure whate else is needed for multi shadows.

    Thanks in advance. I'll make sure stories are in place for the remaining things you need to be free of the Legacy Tilter for good.

    Thank you everyone for your votes and comments. What's being asked for here is really a Premiere Pro core feature and not anything specific to Essential Graphics. The request is a good one, but it has to do with the way that Pr rasterizes vector-based source media like .ai and .eps files. I will be moving this request outside of Essential Graphics so that the core team can see and evaluate it more easily.

    An error occurred while saving the comment

    We do have Vector Motion in the ECP for Graphics in Pr 13.0 which will help you avoid pixelization and clipping. Is that what you want?

    I merged a couple of 'Continually rasterize' request into this one to keep the votes cumulative. I also moved it into the Essentials Graphics bucket. It's good feedback and something we agree would be a good improvement, so keep the votes coming if it's important to you.

    Hi Angel,

    Can you tell me the name of the font and where you got it from? Also, knowing which OS (mac or win) you are on because it will help me understand how you may have installed it.

    Thanks,
    -James

    @Danny GS If dynamic link is required, which it is in the workflow you described, this is not yet fixed and that there is an upcoming AE update to fix it.

    An error occurred while saving the comment

    What is the name of the Font you are having trouble with?
    Can you send us a simple .prproj which reproduces the problem for you?
    Does it happen for other 12.1 projects with Graphics that use different fonts?

    Please respond if you get this and are willing to help us debug and I will send you some private contact info.

    I did not write that comment, but I'm pretty sure what Francis means by, "We are looking into it" is that we recognize that a lot of users could benefit from a spell check feature and so we're trying to evaluate our priorities and perhaps even lay some ground work to make it happen in the not too distant future.

    So it's good that you added your feedback here and hopefully we can make that feature a reality (in PrPro at least) before too long. I cannot speak to why other apps do not have spell checkers either.

    Thanks for taking the time to share your request. Let's see how it does in votes here.

    Hi Clint, after submitting a problem report and looking to this some more, I have learned that it is actually working as designed. You see, on Mac, Option + semicolon is mapped by default to Find Previous Gap in Sequence. If you change or remove that mapping in the Keyboard Shortcuts dialog, then pressing opt + ; will make an ellipsis.

    An error occurred while saving the comment

    Thank you for the response, Clint. After your initial post, I submitted an internal problem report for this. It's a problem with the EGP itself and is not specific to Ae text. For example, if you make a shape using the shape tool in Pr, and then right click and Rename it from within the EGP, the same result will happen if you press alt/opt + semicolon. In either case, you can still enter an ellipse by just pressing the period key three times.

    An error occurred while saving the comment

    Thank you for taking the time to report this. I think what you mean is that when using a shortcut like option + semicolon (on mac) the ellipses is not added if you are typing inside an EGP edit field. Is that right? Also, are you using mac or win?

    I tried this on the latest public version of Pr 15.0 using a simple Ae mogrt with text and it happens just as you said. The ellipses is not added to the Ae text if you are typing into the EGP field but it is added if you are typing into the Program Mon edit box. I can log a problem report for this. I can't promise to fix it in the near future but I can at least put it in a state where it can be evaluated and prioritized.

    Thank you agin for letting us know about it. For now, the workaround, of course, is to just type in three periods.

    Thank you for taking the time for reporting this, Werner. There have been problems in the past where AME did not always export graphic layers as expected, but those known issues were fixed several versions ago. I just tried exporting some text layers with backgrounds using the latest (15.0) versions of PrPro and AME and the results were all good.

    So, assuming you're still having trouble with this, I'd like to ask you two questions:
    (1) What versions of Pr and AME are you using and on which OS?
    (2) When you say "background" do you mean the background appearance property for text layers or do you mean a rectangular shape layer that is pinned to a text layer above it?

    Thank you Tim for sending me the mogrt and a clear picture of the correct and incorrect results you are seeing. After spending some time with your mogrt on several different systems, we found that the problem happens when you turn on the control to "Resize for 1080" in Pr's EGP which keeps the track mattes from animating in and out correctly. If you don't actually need to resize it for 1080, you can just leave that unchecked and the whole graphic will animate in and out as expected.

    Also thank you for helping me get to the root of the problem in Ae. To be clear, to fix it you just needed to make sure that the masks were parented correctly to the the resize control and that they resize along with everything else when that control is checked on. After that, you will of course need to re-export the MOGRT from Ae and re-apply it in Pr and all the controls should work as expected at that point.

    Thank you for taking the time to report this to us. I'd like to get the mogrt form you if possible so I can try it myself. I will be emailing you shortly to set up a way to do that. Also, I watched the mp4 you attached but I didn't see any obvious problem with it. Was that what the correct result is supposed to look like or did I miss some flaw in the video?

    srt export was broken in Beta builds from about a week ago. It should be fixed in the latest Beta build (Pr 15.0 x Beta 024) which you can update to using your CC desktop app.

    The screenshot you attached helped us to understand what you are seeing. Could you maybe attach another one to show us how you want it to look? The caption bumpers you are hitting are at just 5% of the Program Monitor frame area, which leaves very little room for readable text outside of that area.

    Thank you for your feedback, Arun. It's good to see folks using our new captions workflow already and we're interested in helping people have the best experience possible. Can you tell us more about the workflow which requires you to move a caption outside of safely visible areas in the Program Monitor?

    Thank you for the thorough feedback as always, Pierre. For now I will just respond to those 2 additional points you made.

    Re: (1) Drag and drop multiple mogrts to sequence. I have requested this myself because it's often part of my testing process to analyze a lot of mogrts at once. But this is not a real user scenario and when asked to come up with a real use case, I have not been able to. Can you help us understand what the actual editing/creative workflow is where someone would want to add 48 mogrts at once, all in a row in the same track?

    Re: (2) This could get dangerous. A lot of people purchase and use stock mogrts and expect to be able to keep them in their EGP to use whenever they want. If they don't remember to move them to a Library or some additional folder location they could lose their purchases for good. In any case, I think we want to err on the side of NOT automatically deleting any user media from disk or even from within a bin in the project. But again, if you have a really compelling use case for this, we'd like to hear about it.

    An error occurred while saving the comment

    Thank you all for the helpful comments and votes here. This really helps us understand user needs and priorities.

    This particular topic has included a lot of different ideas and requests over the years and has been hard to follow over time. Also, the Under Review status assigned to it may be a little misleading. As a result, we are removing that label at this time. This doesn't mean that we don't care about all the user requests in this area. On the contrary, we want to keep hearing your voices so that we can deliver the best possible features in the future.

    For now, I'd like to let anyone who is reading know about a few existing methods to help you organize your mogrts:
    (1) Export or copy your mogrts to be inside of CC Libraries. These can be filtered and viewed like folders in the EGP and they are also searchable from within the EGP Browse panel.
    (2) Use "Manage Additional Folders" which can accessed from the EGP spanner menu. You can add, remove and sort local and network folders from within this dialog and then view and filter them from within the EGP Browse tab.
    (3) There is a free plugin call Premiere Composer which will give you some really nice UI to help you organize and use mogrts.

    Regarding that 3rd option, I'll let my colleague Dacia provide some additional info about it including a link to a page where you can preview and download it if you want.

    @scott I can understand why the workflow seems counter-intuitve when you're used to everything being like media in the Project Panel. Perhaps it would help to think of Graphic Layers as Effects (which is what they are) and the Graphic track item as a container for Layers. Like effects, Graphic Layers are only really relevant when they are used in sequence along with the media they are meant to complement.

    An error occurred while saving the comment

    @scott crozier We recently removed the drag and drop method of converting timeline Graphics into Master graphics in the project panel because it creates a scenrario where all new instances of the master item will always be exact duplicates of each other. That is not something that most users will ever want, so we made it harder to do inadvertently. It's still possible, you just have to use a menu item to do it. Select a Graphic in TL, then choose Graphics > Upgrade to Master Graphic.

    @Vedin Trhulj

    If you can find each of the mogrts you need per sport once in the EGP, and if you click the Info button on a mogrt's thumbnail, then you can add keywords like "Tennis" or "Basketball". You can then search on "Tennis" within the My Templates tab to show that set of mogrts. You can get as detailed as you want with your keywords, like for example maybe you add "Handball, 2018, Lower Thirds" so that you can search out all the Lower Thirds graphics for your 2018 Handball segments at once.

    Also, if the thumbnails you want are already Local, checking on Local Templates Folder should make it easier to spot what you want. It should be even easier if you save to Libraries and filter to show only the Library(s) you want.

    I'll let one of our Product Managers explain the reasons behind replacing the EGP Browser folder navigation with a tagging and search system for mogrts.

    For now, to help people understand more about the current workflow, here are some steps that might help.

    Create your own Graphics packages to share:
    1. Make a Graphic in Pr or author one in Ae's EGP.
    2. Export as Mogrt.
    3. (Optional) In the export dialog, assign some kind of shared keyword(s) so that you can easily search and find related graphics in the EGP later. You can also add, remove keywords after the fact in the EGP Mogrt's Info view, as long as it's in your possession (not a mogrt in the stock tab).
    4. Choose a Library as the export destination.
    5. Repeat step 1-4 for additional graphics in that package. Make multiple Libraries if you want and arrange things in various Libraries as needed. Mogrt sets can be filtered by Library name in this way.
    6. Invite other users to your Library(s).
    7. Go to Pr's EGP > Browser > My Templates > Libraries > LibraryName. (one or more Library can be checked on at a time)
    8. Drag and drop a mogrt form there to a sequence in the Timeline.

    NOTE: If Export as MOGRT destination is CC Library... it will always create a new item, even if you give it the same name. If it gets too confusing to have a lot of variations in the same Library with iterated names, you may want to add a step where you delete the old one before Exporting a revised mogrt from Ae or Pr.

    "Other : Open .morgtfiles on Aftereffects ????"

    This is already possible in Ae 15.1 ... Launch Ae > Open Project > point to a mogrt > Extract
    It has to be a mogrt compatible with that version though.
