    Nice mockup gus. Wonder is Adobe is onboard with this idea. Davinci Resolver already has this feature.

    Thanks again for the feedback. We have made sure to have created items in our database for all actionable items. We are hoping you will be pleased by some of the changes we have made in future releases. Please continue to engage with us.

    Note that in the future, while this list is awesome, it is much easier for us to change status on completed items if they are single entry.

    We may close this one eventually but will keep the other individually tracked items open with status

    Hi Clifton, Adobe will soon be completely overhauling the captioning tools. You can take a look at the new version in the public Premiere beta. Hopefully it will solve most of our issues. :)

    12. When working on captions, deselecting the captions clip in the Timeline (or selecting any other clip) makes all of the captions disappear from the Captions window. An empty captions window is of zero benefit to editors and is an annoyance since it gives editors the added step of having to re-select the captions clip in the Timeline before they can continue to work on captioning.

    My suggested solution is simple. Please always keep captions visible in the Captions window, whether the captions clip is currently selected in the Timeline or not. If the Timeline has more than 1 captions clip, keep the last selected captions clip visible until the editor manually selects another one, or one gets selected automatically through "Selection Follows Playhead".

    My official FR for this idea is here: https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911233-premiere-pro/suggestions/41103982-always-keep-captions-visible-in-the-captions-windo

    Since version 13.1.2 when I posted this (now at v14.3.1), points 1, 4 and 9 above have been fixed. Point 5 is no longer an issue since it's so easy to fix. Thank you for listening Adobe!!!! Hopefully the remaining 6 points can be fixed in due time. :)

    I would add that a clip should only be selected if clicking on the part of it that's visible/has pixels. If clicking on a title or a cropped image, clicking outside of its visible pixels should select the next visible layer underneath!

    Strange. I never had issues with this and actually love how intuitive double clicking anywhere in the Project window to import is. So if this is implemented, it would absolutely need to be an on/off checkbox option.

    Yup, Excalibur is going to change how editors work with Premiere Pro! Imagine if there was someone like the creator of Excalibur in Adobe's team!

    At least the wait is over now for a better editing experience. I'm so thankful that when Adobe refuses to help us with long requested features, other brilliant editors who know programing step in to save the day!

    Kudos to Ivan (creator of Excalibur)! Shame on Adobe for ignoring such basic and essential FRs as this one, for years at a time. 'Under Review' since Dec 18, 2018? You've got to be kidding Adobe!

    Hi Alex, it's called Excalibur. You're right, it isn't 'solved' from Adobe's perspective but it sure is solved from an end user's perspective! You can learn more about it here: https://knightsoftheeditingtable.com

    SOLVED!!!!!! There's no more need to wait for Adobe to fix this anymore! There's a new plug-in that just came out that allows us to simultaneously set shortcuts to 3 different pasting behaviors:
    1. Paste to lowest enabled track
    2. Paste to highest enabled track
    3. Paste to same track

    This new plug-in doesn't just provide a solution to Pr's horrible pasting, but it also provides solutions to well over a dozen other common FRs. You can find out more about it here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1638270639681590/permalink/1766467540195232

    You're welcome! ;)

    Hi Alex,

    You wrote "What I want is for Premiere to default to the same track UNLESS I select another track".

    What I propose would give you exactly that. All you would have to do is set 'paste to same track' as your default by assigning it the default shortcut of Ctrl-V. Problem solved! Or am I missing an issue I haven't noticed yet?

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    Pierre Louis Beranek commented  · 

    I disagree that discussing better options is going to add confusion as you say Alex. If anything, the voting system on User Voice is broken, so it makes it necessary to point out better solutions in the comments section vs just creating a new FR.

    Case in point, I created a FR that includes Andy's original request, but is far superior since it includes options to accommodate all users, not just the users who want to paste to the same track(s) media was copied/cut from. My far more comprehensive FR got 26 votes so far. This FR got 258 votes. IMO, the number of votes a FR gets is not a reflection of its quality. It's simply a reflection of how easy the request is to understand right off the bat.

    Short, easy to understand FR = more votes

    Long, detailed, and comprehensive FR = few votes since people don't have the time or patience to go through all of the details

    Getting a new shortcut to paste on the same track does NOT solve Pr's pasting problems. We need more options. My FR provides those needed options. Contrary to what some people suspect, having more options does not add complexity. Do you only ever want to paste to the same track? Assign the Ctrl-V default shortcut to that option and you're done! Want to always paste to the highest enabled track? Same deal, assign Ctrl-V to it and you're done. Want options to chose on the fly where media gets pasted? Assign the default shortcut to your favorite pasting method, and alternative shortcuts for the other 2 options. It literally couldn't be any simpler, fairer, or more accommodating to different users' needs.

    For those who haven't seen it yet, here's the link to my FR once again: https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911233-premiere-pro/suggestions/41066920-new-shortcuts-to-choose-where-to-paste-on-the-fly

    Andy's on the right track with his FR, but it isn't nearly comprehensive enough to solve pasting issues for most/all editing situations.

    TaranVH hit the nail on the head. I don't edit the way you describe Alex, with video tracks reserved for specific types of media. Not sure many people work this way. Even if they do, pasting to the same track won't work anytime there's media on it that would get overwritten.
    Best solution is different shortcut options. If you want media to get pasted to the same track you copied it from, great! Just assign a shortcut to that new option and you're good to go. People who prefer to paste to the highest or lowest enabled track can assign a shortcut to those options. Want access to all 3 options? Just assign your preferred shortcuts to each option and choose where to paste on the fly.

    I cannot think of a better, more flexible and more accommodating set of options than this. Only having the option to ever paste to the same track wouldn't be practical, for the reasons Taran stated.

    @Alek Elkins
    "Your suggestion of using a global preference adds complication yet still removes that control. "

    I disagree, and it should be quite obvious why. With options such as pasting to the lowest or to the highest enabled track, users would retain full control over exactly where something gets pasted: by choosing which tracks to enable.

    As for adding complication, useful options should hardly be seen as a 'complication' when they help users get things done the way they want to. Especially if it's a "set it once and leave it" kind of option.

    Any word from Adobe about finally fixing copy pasting?

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    Pierre Louis Beranek commented  · 

    An important point needs to be added here: Just changing the behavior from pasting to the lowest enable track(s) to the same track media was copied from is NOT a full solution and would actually make the workflow WORSE is many instances. For example, if a user cuts clips from V1 and wants to paste them somewhere else in the Timeline that already has clips on V1... only giving them the option to paste the cut media to V1 would be even worse than allowing them to select which track to paste to after cutting them through track patching. The ONLY way for 'paste onto same track' to be truly useful is if it's an option given IN ADDITION TO other options, as I suggest in my other FR: https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911233-premiere-pro/suggestions/41066920-new-shortcuts-to-choose-where-to-paste-on-the-fly

    Sorry about the allcaps for emphasis, but it is vital that you take this into consideration when fixing timeline pasting!

    Andy Lewis' idea is a good one, but by itself, it would be worse than the current behavior. His suggestion only works if it is used as one of several options. The best way to give users the option of where to paste 'on the fly' is through new keyboard shortcuts. Those who only ever want to paste to the same track, can assign the default Ctrl-V shortcut to that option. Ditto for those who only ever want to paste to the highest or to the lowest enabled track. If a user wants two or three options of where to paste 'on the fly', they can assign whatever shortcuts suit them best to the additional options. There. A solution that would suit everyone's needs, without changing the current pasting behavior, for the few that actually like how it currently works. Allowing a keyboard shortcut to be assigned to TaranVH's great idea of pasting to the Source patched tracks would be the 'cherry on top'!

    TaranVH, allowing source patching as an option of where to paste by default is another great idea!

    Here's a new Feature Request that includes the suggested 'Paste onto the same track' shortcut, as well as an option to paste to the highest enabled track. https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911233-premiere-pro/suggestions/41066920-new-shortcuts-to-choose-where-to-paste-on-the-fly

    This would be the most comprehensive way to let users work, allowing users to choose on the fly if they want to paste to the lowest-enabled, highest-enabled or same track their media was copied from. Please vote and add your voice!

    Hi Jonas, it is! I can't imagine ever going back to editing without it! Check out my FB post linked in my previous post to see a few of the other things it does. And this is v1.0.0. It's only going to get even better moving forward! :)

    I though about jumping ship to Davinci Resolve, but not anymore that we have Premiere+Excalibur!

    YES!!!!!!!!!! Adobe, give use 10, or better yet 20 customizable shortcuts so we can apply our most used effects to clips with a single key press! This would be a HUGE time saver!

    I agree 100! This is the same FR I made years ago here: https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911233-premiere-pro/suggestions/35766661-make-keyboard-shortcuts-work-from-anywhere-in-the.

    To add to the list:

    Bypass Lumetri Color Effect should work from anywhere, not just when the Lumetri panel is selected, which is incredibly stupid since it makes it impossible to use the shortcut while in Full Screen view (unless you assign and use another shortcut to select the Lumetri panel first while in Full Screen)

    Sequence Settings: only works with Program Monitor selected but not Timeline???

    The sheer number of logic gaps and inexplicable inconsistencies in Pr is shameful. :(

    Hi James,

    You wrote "but the current means of choosing which track to paste to is cumbersome". I agree. The option to paste to the highest enabled track would solve this problem once and for all.

    Imagine a sequence with 5 video tracks that are always enabled. You only ever place media on V1-V4. This means that V5 would always be free to paste into without zero risk of overwriting something by mistake, and no need to ever adjust which tracks are enabled beforehand. Problem solved! (Note: If you copy or cut/paste media that occupied 2 or more tracks, new V tracks will automatically be created. To continue pasting to V5, simply don't enable any of the newly created tracks)

    Editing in a timeline with no tracks enabled is impractical given Pr's reliance on track enabling for basic shortcuts to work (cut, go to next/previous edit point, etc.)

    Hi Tom,

    The point of the Facebook group is to offer another venue where people who care about Pr can discuss ways to improve our favorite NLE. It isn't a replacement to Adobe User Voice, but rather an addition to it, with posts linking back to official FRs here. Plus there are some Adobe reps in the group. It's a new group, so it's still very small, so if you'd like to check it out and join, you're more than welcome!

    WORKAROUND TIPS!

    Until Adobe fixes this, there are a couple of easy workarounds:

    1. Add the Transform and Crop effects to your clip (in that order, otherwise it won't work). Crop your clip to the dimensions of the PIP/window you want. Now adjust your clip's Scale, Position and Rotation using the Transform effect. Bingo, it works! You can now change the motion properties of your clip without changing the size/position/rotation of the 'window' itself! To apply both effects at the same time in the future, select them both in the ECP with your preferred settings (or before changing any settings at all), right click on the name of one of them and select 'Save Preset...' (see illustration).

    2. Even easier, just add the Transform effect to your clip. Now mask your clip using the Opacity effect's masking tools in the ECP. You can create a rectangle, circle or any other shape you want. Now change the motion properties of your clip using the Transform effect. It works as well!

    Hope this info helps!

    Does anyone know of a third-party plugin that provides proper track matting in Premiere Pro (i.e. the way AE does it, without resorting to AE or nesting)? Years later, Adobe still doesn't seem to care about fixing essential things like this that would make a world of difference to editors. :(
