Filters - Text (rich)

Hello everyone

I’m new to the forum…

I had a question , I saved Rich text ready in a project. I wanted to use it in another project, but only the size is coming… not the text content…?

Can you help with this?


Thank you for the answer. I know this method you showed.

It’s about the one I saved as a ready-made template that I couldn’t do. When I call it, only its location comes up. no content.

Text: Simple will save the txt to a preset, because it is part of the settings.
Text: Rich will not because the Rich text is not part of the settings, it is a separate item


Welcome @Ertan - I think you need to save it as a preset! Then whenever you select it, you will get the text and don’t have to type again.

So, you will have to apply the same filter, in this case the Rich Text, then click on the preset and chose the one that you saved earlier.

Hope this helps :smiley:

Yes, it doesn’t… Simple text does. i tried it.

No, it don’t work with Text : Rich

Oh, I didn’t know that - perhaps the work around is to save the text in a simple text, then copy and paste it into rich text :smiley:


@Devin_Chopra ; Thankyou :slight_smile:

I am attaching a sample video.

The techincal reason is propperly the formats used by preset don’t support to store the html format used by Text: Rich

Ex. Preset

geometry: “0=0%/0%:100%x100%; -1=-5%/-5%:110%x110%”
“shotcut:animIn”: “00:00:04.000”

Rich Text from .mlt file

<html><head><meta name="qrichtext" content="1" /><style type="text/css">
p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; }
</style></head><body style=" font-family:‘Cantarell’; font-size:11pt; font-weight:400; font-style:normal;">
<p style="-qt-paragraph-type:empty; margin-top:0px; margin-bottom:0px; margin-left:0px; margin-right:0px; -qt-block-indent:0; text-indent:0px; font-family:‘sans-serif’; font-size:72pt; font-weight:600; color:#ffffff;"><br /></p></body></html>

Understood. Thank you so much.

I hope they fix it and update it in the new version.

Just create a preset.mlt project with some short color clips where you have the Text: RIch you want to re-use and copy the filters into your project when you need them

(Hint: you can copy filters between 2 open projects)

Yes. ! Good idea. Thank you.

Hi @Ertan
There is a way to save the content of the Text: Rich filter.
Open the filter’s menu in the viewer, go to File and Save as…
This will save all the text and text properties in a HTML file that you can reuse in the same project or later in any other project.

Please note that this will not save the parameters you set in the filter’s panel (Position, Background size, etc…).
To reuse those, you’ll need to save them as a preset in the Text: Rich panel.


Following @MusicalBox’s solution.
Original Text: Rich

New project
