Re: Searching markers by Lee Warner on Apr 11, 2015 at 1:29:36 am
Thanks, but as far as I can tell the search function only looks for text that is in the current clip that you are looking at. I am interesting in searching marker text in any clip in the project. Is that possible?

Yes it can, but not in the most intuitive way, the marker info was embedded in clip metadata. But Premiere didn't show the EXACT corresponding box/panel for that. You need to use Search bin under "search all metadata"
Sadly, even if Premiere is able to show that clip using marker metadata, the current way of premiere handling metadata searching is limited to only their default selection. And you can't actually see the metadata display on-screen, because the marker metadata panel didn't show up in "Metadata Display" Selection.
The problem with this approach is you really need to use a unique name to your marker/comment. Otherwise, it will be jungle of mess.
What Adobe need to do is to allowed custom metadata search, not limited to their default selection dropdown menu.
I suggest use that workaround for the time being (using unique name), while also suggesting the feature on adobe support.
