having more than one item on the clipboard (copied)
on Jun 23, 2011 at 1:09:55 am

I use the same three clips of text in all my many video tutorials. To get them in , i bring up a recent tutorial, copy a text clip, then paste it in the new work. Then I repeat with the other two clips. Is there a way to keep a collection of clips on a clipboard (copied) somewhere that I can retrieve and insert into new work? I figure there must be an easier way of doing this than my silly way - thanks so much -

Have a project which is just the three text boxes in a timeline. Open that each time as well as your new project and then copy paste from there.

There may also be software to give you multiple clipboards, but that is an OS issue, not FCP

Thanks, but thats what im doing right now- just with an older project as opposed to only the text. Bummer- i thought for sure there would be a more efficient solution - thanks for the reply though!!

If you drag a text clip from your timeline into a new bin, it creates a new clip that you can rename. I'd have a bin with the three text clips in it, and drag and drop them into my timeline as needed.

Not as good as what you're after, but perhaps easier than cutting and pasting.
