Titling and the Titler

Type text along a path

1In the Titler, click the Path Type tool or the Vertical Path Type tool . Using the path type tools is similar to drawing with Pen Tool.

2In the drawing area, click where you want the text to begin.

3Click or drag to create a second point.

4Continue clicking until you create the path shape you want.

5Type the text. When you type, the text begins along the top or right edge of the path. If necessary, adjust the path by dragging the object anchor points.

Note: Resizing the text box created in this mode resizes only the visible area; the text remains the same size.

6 When you finish, choose the Selection tool and click outside the text box.

Edit and select text

Using the Selection tool, double-click the text at the point you want to edit or begin a selection. The tool changes to the Type tool, and a cursor indicates the insertion point.

To move the insertion point, click between characters or use the Left Arrow and Right Arrow keys.

To select a single character or group of contiguous characters, drag from the insertion point cursor to highlight the characters.

You can format selected text using controls in the Titler main panel, the Title Properties panel, or menu commands. To format an entire text or graphic object, click the object and then modify its properties.

Format text in titles

Some object properties—such as fill color and shadow—are common to all objects you create in the Titler. Other properties are unique to text objects. Controls for font, font style, and type alignment are in the Titler panel above the drawing area. Other options are available in the Title Properties panel and the Title menu of the main menu bar.

At any time, you can change the fonts that you use for your titles. The Font Browser displays all of your installed fonts using a set of default characters, which you can customize.

When you choose a font in the Font Browser, it immediately applies to your title. The Font Browser remains open so that you can preview another font.

Note: If you share title files with other users, make sure that their computers have the fonts that you used to create the shared title.

Specify a font

Select the text and do one of the following:

Choose Title > Font and choose a font from the menu.

In the Title Properties panel, click the Font Family triangle to open the drop-down menu, and select a font.

Change the letters that appear in the Font Browser

When you open the drop-down menus for Font Family and Font Style, the Font Browser appears, showing example characters set in the various available fonts. You can determine which characters are used in the Font Browser.

1 Select Edit > Preferences > Titler (Windows), or Premiere Pro > Preferences > Titler (Mac OS).

2Type the characters you would like displayed for Style Swatches (limit of two) and the Font Browser (limit of six) into their respective fields.

3Click > OK.

Change the font size

Select the text and do one of the following:

Choose Title > Size and choose a font size.

Change the Font Size value in the Title Properties panel.

Change text orientation

1Select a text object.

2Choose Title > Orientation and select either Horizontal or Vertical.

Specify text properties

When you select any object in a title, its properties are listed in the Title Properties panel. Adjusting values in the panel alters the selected object. Text objects possess unique properties, such as leading and kerning.

Note: Some text properties are not listed in the Title Properties panel. For example, you can set font, font style, and type alignment either in the Titler panel or in the Title menu. The Title menu also includes options for orientation, word wrap, tabs, and inserting a logo into a text box.

1Select the text object or range of text you want to modify.

2In the Title Properties panel, click the arrow next to Properties, and set values. Some of the options include:

Font Specifies the font applied to the selected text object. To view a font in its typeface, use the Font Browser.

Font Size Specifies the font’s size, in scan lines.

Aspect Specifies the horizontal scale of the selected font. This value is some percentage of the font’s natural aspect ratio. Values less than 100% narrow the text. Values above 100% widen the text.

Leading Specifies the amount of space between lines of type. For roman type, leading is measured from the baseline of one line of type to the baseline of the next line. For vertical text, leading is measured from the center of one line of type to the center of the next line. In the Titler, the baseline is the line underneath the text. You can apply more than one leading amount within the same paragraph. However, the largest leading value in a line of type determines the leading value for that line.

Note: To turn the text baselines on or off, choose Title > View > Text Baselines. Text baselines appear only when you select the text object.

Kerning Specifies the amount of space you add or subtract between specific character pairs. The value indicates the percentage of character width between the character pairs. Place the cursor at the point where you want to adjust kerning.

Tracking Specifies the amount of space between a range of letters. The value indicates the percentage of character width between the specified range of characters. The direction of the text tracking is based on the justification of the text. For example, center-justified text tracks from the center. Adjusting the tracking is useful when your contiguous text has thick strokes that cause the characters to blend into each other, making them hard to read. Adjust the tracking for all the text in a text box by selecting the text box and changing the Tracking value. You can also adjust the tracking between specific contiguous characters by selecting only those characters and changing the Tracking value.

Baseline Shift Specifies the distance of the characters from the baseline. Raise or lower the selected type to create superscripts or subscripts. Changing the Baseline Shift value affects all characters. Adjust the baseline shift for all the
