Tip #218: Shortcuts that Move Titles
These shortcuts give your text direction.
The new Title tool in Premiere is really great, when it isn’t also driving me nuts. The problem is that I can never remember when I can edit the text and when I can move it.
Here’s the secret:
- Select the text clip with the Text tool and the box turns red. Red means you can edit the text with the text tool.
- Select the text clip with the Selection tool and the box turns blue. Blue means you can move the text box.
There are helpful keyboard shortcuts that can help you move text boxes, once you’ve selected them in the Effect Controls.
|Shortcut||What It Does|
|Cmd – [arrow key]||Moves the selected text box one pixel in the direction of the arrow.|
|Shift – Cmd – [arrow key]||Moves the selected text box five pixels in the direction of the arrow.|
