A very often question we get is how Premiere Pro users van duplicate a text. Or they’re using our designer pack Simple Titles, or they have created their own text template and would like to use it multiple times in their project. If you’re just going to copy and paste the title file from your sequence or timeline, you will find out quickly that when you change the text of one title, the source of the copied text has also changed.
This problem is due to the title files in your timeline are linked to a source file in your project window. When understanding this principle we know that we must duplicate the text inside the project panel first and then drag the new source to the timeline. However, this could mean a lot of work when you need to duplicate many titles files. For example, when making subtitles.
The trick here is to duplicate it via the timeline and you can simply do that my alt + dragging the desired text tile to a different spot in the timeline. This makes a duplication/copy in your project panel and links the new copy to the one in your timeline.
