This is extremely significant...so you can get super detailed in one project in regards to assigning roles to clips but that list simplifies when you remove that project from the event browser.

Was this widely known? Or did I just miss the boat somewhere?

What you say is not technically correct. As long as one clip in a project or event contains a custom role, then that custom role can be used in any event or project.

Or more specifically, custom roles only exist if there are clips in projects or events using them. I touch on this in my Roles tutorial.

Well I guess I was applying my experience which is to work on one event at a time. So when I remove the event with custom roles assigned, it goes back to default roles only.

Watch out for Bill's comment. He might state something to the effect of "events are not the same as capture scratch." And then he might explain the databasiness.

[Richard Herd] "Watch out for Bill's comment. He might state something to the effect of "events are not the same as capture scratch." And then he might explain the databasiness."

A) nothing is the same as anything, anymore. That's the problem and the opportunity.
B) databasiness is akin to magneticosity - only more subtle.
C) I'm too tired to explain anything - and if you ask a certain group of people here, they'll likely swear on teetering stacks of bibles that I've never actually properly explained anything to anyone on any subject - ever.

Such is life.

As a workaround, set up a empty event that has all the roles assigned that you need and leave this in the event browser.
