Tip #1469: Set a Marker Range

Marker durations are very useful for transcripts.

Set a marker duration in the Edit Marker dialog. A range marker is illustrated below.

Normally, a marker in Premiere indicates a specific point in time. However, you can extend a marker to cover a range in the timeline. This technique is good for adding transcriptions, marking selected regions of a quote, or whenever you need to indicate something that takes time.

Here’s how:

  • Add a marker to a clip or timeline.
  • Double-click the marker to open the Edit Marker dialog.
  • Change the Duration (top red arrow) timecode to reflect the duration of the marker.

NOTE: This measures the duration of a marker, not the marker’s location in the timeline.


Once a duration is applied to a marker, you can change it by dragging either the start or ending marker to a new timeline location (bottom red arrow).
