I'll have to look into that on future projects.

For now, I've decided to just make the checkmark somewhere near cyan, since the background is orange, then use do a color replace. It's pretty simple, and there's no transparency, so that should work fairly well.

I haven't learned enough about Essential Graphics. I don't feel there is very good training out there, and even the documentation seems a bit lacking.

One VERY significant thing that it didn't seem to address is Libraries can not be updated. WHO made That decision. It was a terrible discovery. I created a title animation and saved it there to be shared with a coworker. You can't even Download it. It just plain doesn't exist locally. So warning, don't do it. Save locally, Then share.
But it seems like quite a bit extra work to have to export my template, then import it. Because then if I want to update the animation, I have to export it, then import it again?

I've had troubles with things updating in Premiere. Two of us tried to get updates and things to work properly, and we have since abandoned essential graphics for the most part. I've used it for a couple projects where I was in a hurry and the titles needed animations. But updating doesn't seem to work. And protected regions only work Sometimes. It's really odd. It seems very "beta."

Anyway, for now, I think that's just way more work. I'll wait on essential graphics for them to either abandon it, or fix it. Kinda like the collaboration with teams feature. They did a Terrible job implementing that. Every time we've tried it, it corrupted data, and we had to abandon. When I spoke with Adobe about it, they basically said, "we haven't heard much about it because to tell you the truth, not many people use it." Oh, well...great.
