    Glad I'm not the only one experiencing this, but frustrated that Adobe fails to fix it. It costs me time and money resetting the workspace every time I open a project.

    We understand that retiring a part of the software can create issues for some users. We are doing our best to make this a slow and steady process and are adding needed features along the way. Most importantly, we have added the ability to convert Legacy Titles into Source Graphics. While not all characteristics will translate perfectly, this should give you really good results in most cases.
    We’re not just taking something away, we’re adding functionality to Essential Graphics constantly. Our team is working hard to make sure it meets your workflow needs. And if it doesn’t – we want to know about it.
    If you feel that there is a specific feature missing in Essential Graphics please create a single UserVoice post for it, e.g. for Inner and Outer Strokes. This way it is much easier for others to vote on something actionable.
    Please take a look at our …

    TaranVH. Thanks for reposting these steps, but that doesn't really help when I need to make a change in a specific existing project. Likely I'll continue to use After Effects for titling, particularly if Adobe eliminates the legacy titler. "Essential Graphics" is not user-friendly for me, and time is the one commodity I have the least of. If a Client contacts me and needs a change asap, I need to open up his/her project, make the change quickly, and output new versions for various media.

    Same here. I have Clients with projects dating back years and the titles were created with the legacy titler. To rebuild all those titles in the new "Motion Graphics" panel will cost me a lot of time... none of which I can ethically charge my Clients for. If the "Motion Graphics" panel was intuitive OR (even better), the Legacy Titles could be easily imported into the new titler and saved as a new file it wouldn't be so difficult to give up on the Legacy Titler.

    Whether I'm a "highly skilled pro" is debatable, but I use Premiere Pro to produce broadcast & cable TV commercials. I'm very comfortable creating titles in After Effects and using the 'After effects Composition' to update them. However, I find the Premiere Graphics Panel to be very difficult to work with. I greatly prefer the Legacy Title over the Graphics Panel. Please do not remove it.

    On the Users forum there are 23 pages of complaints from editors who either do not find Essential Graphics to be useful and/or have ongoing projects with titles from the "Legacy" app. I lost several hours of billable time when I had to research the problem of a timeline locking up due to the use of a "legacy" title and had to roll back to previous version of Premiere. You folks really should read what real editors experience. Shame on you. https://community.adobe.com/t5/premiere-pro/a-low-level-exception-occured-in-adobe-player-player-5/m-p/11126223?page=23#M270476
