Vegas 9 Text Media Generator

Hi Guys

I have noticed that unlike older versions, when you create default text with the Media Generator and then use the same text in a renamed project the text changes in BOTH projects!! When I'm doing wedding speeches, I usually just rename the current project leaving just 10 secs of intro music, background and the text to reflect the next person to speak is only changed. However if I rename this to say, "speech2" and go back to "speech1" the text block has changed!! Apart from duplicating the text block, is there anything in preferences to stop Vegas "remembering" the text in a new project and updating all the older ones???

Assuming that you're talking about Vegas Pro 9, make sure you're running 9.0b as there were very serious text issues with 9.0a.

Thanks Mike

I'll have to check what build mine is!! The text generator works perfectly!!! No issues at all except if you use the same Sony Text object in multiple projects any changes to the text are reflected when you re-open an older project using the same object. If you create a new text object there is no problem

That is the issue...so it wasn't fixed. I thought I recalled installing the newest update and experiencing this issue. In my case, I often create projects in sections, then paste them all together from different projects and thereby creating the final project making this issue problematic and inconvenient.
