    OK Adobe, your paying customers have spoken totally in favor of keeping the Legacy Title tool. Therefore will you publicly commit now, to those who pay for your services, to those who you say you value (your customers), that you WILL KEEP the Legacy Title tool?

    Hi James Strawn.....Just so you know. I dont have After Effects, and I am terrified of the painful learning curve that will come with it. Aside from my wish that Adobe keeps Legacy Title. Another problem that Adobe has is that there is almost zero space in the room (that's a metaphor) for beginners or know-nothings like me. Everything Adobe creates is done with the cultural assumption that everyone who uses any CC product (or at least Lr, Pr, Ps, Ae) is an experienced EXPERT who never faced a learning curve of any sort. "They were just born that way, knowing all the tricks of Adobe CC anything!!" (That's another metaphor). I have watched so many videos of Adobe just wizzing right through the toughest of creations in seconds. Then when I try, there is either a missing component, or a trick to make some box of options appear, or God forbid you hit the wrong button and the entire screen changes, but there is no "back" button for moments like that. I am a pretty intelligent person, but these types of issues have plagued my Adobe experience. And don't get me wrong. I love what I get from Adobe and I love what I am able to create. BUT--If you only knew the ideas in my mind, and how I absolutely cannot get them into creative existence because I don't have the mastery that Adobe seems to think everybody comes to CC with in the first place. And Adobe doesn't offer "Useable" phone support the way Apple or Canon do. Yes I know I can call, but if you have ever seen one of your less-than-expert CC friends call the support line and experience the interaction with the support staff, then you know full well how painful it is. Not just the language barrier, but the inability of those folks to actually show you how to do anything. Adobe is worth $121 Billion. I think a great investment of just a smidgen of all that cash (after all, how many private horse riding lessons can an exec possibly buy for their kids?) would be to have staff that can teach users like me how to do stuff, and come on the computer the exact way Apple does. Anyway, rant over. And thank you for reading what I have written.......

    At its simplest level, with the new title tool, if I want to write out multiple lines of text, I cannot. I have to create a new title box. With the legacy title tool, i can write out multiple lines of text and have great control over the look, feel, size, color etc.

    Hi James Strawn. Does that mean you will KEEP Adobe Legacy Titles in addition to the new title tool?

    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.

    I strongly DISAGREE. That pop-up window has saved me MANY TIMES. And for those reading at Adobe, this goes to the heart and soul of the culture of the Premiere Pro use community. There are so many of us who are not nearly as advanced as the user who posted this comment. Trust me when I say, we users who are not as advanced are not being less advanced in order to anger users such as him/her who wishes that warning would go away. PLEASE KEEP IT THERE!! I have accidentally deleted keyframes MANY TIMES. That warning truly saved my efforts!! And the efforts of thousands of others who didnt post a response here.

    I agree. Legacy title should NOT be lost or removed. The new Title function is way more difficult to master.
